As the innovator in hydraulic compensated skid shoe systems, ALE is uniquely qualified to understand and respond to your precise requirements
Skid systems are designed to make safe and precise horizontal movements and, as such, are an effective means of moving plant and structures in confined or restricted environments. The movement equipment has hydraulic skid shoes with stainless steel bases, which move over low-friction blocks laid into steel skid tracks in an extend and retract sequence.
We operate skid shoe systems to suit a wide range of capacities, with the option of combining a number of skid shoes to create the most suitable system for moving complex loads. The integral hydraulic cylinder of the skid shoes can be interlinked to provide a hydraulically compensated suspension system.
LOAD-IN AND LOAD-OUT BY SKIDDING
ALE is an authority on the design and development of skidding systems for the offshore load-out and load-in of a wide range of modules, platforms and jackets.
