Fagioli skids in Kazakhstan

Fagioli has weighed and transported an offshore module, measuring 80 m x 9.7 m x 11 m, in Kazakhstan.

In order to weigh the offshore module Fagioli used 18 hydraulic jacks, each with a capacity of 300 tons (272.2 tonnes), plus 18 load cells, 14 of which had a capacity of 200 tons (181.4 tonnes) and four 300-tonne capacity units.

Fagioli determined that the module weighed 1,760 tons (1,596.6 tonnes). Strand jacks were then used to pull the module onto skid tracks and, eventually, onto the barge.

Once secured, the barge transported the module to an artificial island, where Fagioli skidded the structure onto the land.
