Our newest innovation
We’ve recently developed a safe and efficient method for horizontal transfer of heavy structures. This method, which has already met with great success, is based on a combination of heavy lifting with hydraulic jacks and skidding technique, using the latest within low friction plastics and epoxy treated sliding surfaces. Guidelines during our development of this new set of equipment have been simplicity and durability. Simplicity comes with the system’s ability to easily change the lifting/moving capacity by only connecting or removing complete 250 ton capacity units (IP-CCV units). Durability has been obtained by minimising the numbers of moving parts and use low friction skidding technique instead traditional bearings. We have now experienced over 100 successful transfer operations with transfer loads ranging from 3000 up to 18000 ton.
Skidding system i.e horizontal transfer of heavy structures require precision and great technique, both which Bygging Uddemann is know for, contact us for transfer operations
Our skidding system is unique in its combination of heavy lifting and skidding technology with the latest material developments in low-friction plastic and epoxy-treated sliding surfaces.
In the development of associated launch equipment, we have strived for simplicity and durability. The simplicity means that the system can easily be modified in lifting / moving capacity as entire skidding units (IP-CCV units) of 250 tons can be easily connected or removed as needed.
Durability has been achieved by minimizing the number of moving parts and using a low-friction skidding technique instead of traditional bearings. We have carried out over 2000 successful relocation work with a load weight from 3,000 tonnes up to 18,000 tonnes.
