DL-GP1000 offshore barge skidding system

Our DL-GP skidding systems are designed to push and pull very heavy loads in both onshore and offshore environments. They walk along a skid track using anchor plates to engage with slotted holes in the top of the skid track. The DL-GP1000 unit below can self-walk in both directions and has a push and pull capacity of 1000 tonnes. It has a hydraulic load balancing system to distribute the anchor force equally to four slotted holes to reduce the cost of the skid track. 2 No DL-GP1000 units were supplied to Nippon Steel in 2012 for use on an offshore jacket installation barge.
