Sarens Jacks and Skids A Forward Ship Block in Singapore

March 2022

Keppel Shipyard Limited called on Sarens to move its 6000T forward ship block at the Tuas Shipyard in Singapore.

With heavy rain, tight project schedule, and Covid-19 regulations, Sarens had to plan and execute the jacking and skidding of the forward ship block – 77m long, 28m wide, 6006T weight. The forward ship block had to be skidded forward by 55m and another mid ship block had to be moved by 10m.

Our team of nine used the following equipment for the project:

  • 20 x 600T Skid Shoes with 2 Power Pack
  • 40 x Push & Pull Cylinder
  • 40 Sets of Alignment Block

The equipment was transported to the site from Malaysia in 20 trailers and was set-up in 10 days. The Operations Manager, Sarens, Tim Van Hoeydonck says, “The jacking and skidding operation was safely completed ahead of schedule with meticulous planning and execution.” The Project Coordinator, Jimmy Thew adds, “It was a challenging project with tight deadlines and we were able to complete it successfully because of the excellence and dedication of our team.”
