Lifting, handling and transportation of a Compressor Skid.

The challenge
We where asked to move a large compressor skid (13,0m x 3,50m x 4,15m / 60 ton),  from the Netherlands to the South of Germany. Due to the size of the skid it was not possible to get it out of the factory on a suitable transport trailer. The narrow streets on the premises of the factory and access road to the highway made this impossible.
Our solution
To decide if this transport was possible, it was important to include the right colleagues. Colleagues ("specialists”) who have proper knowledge of regulations, technical options and transport & lifting possibilities. We involved a project manager who had experience with industrial movements. The project manager prepared a mobilization plan and he managed to find a suitable route by doing a detailed route survey.  
The skid was jacked up in the factory and rolled out. We then lifted the skid with a mobile crane on a semi lowloader (special trailer). With this low trailer we were able to pass a bridge with only 1 cm space left at the top! And we had to take this part of the route in the opposite direction. The compressor skid was then moved without any further obstacles to a safe area to prepare it for further transit. It was safely transhipped on a suitable lowloader for the final part of the transport.  
By using the right knowledge, experience and equipment, another transport project was successfully executed.
