The Skid Coordinator position requires a professional who can oversee the coordination of skid activities
Our client is a Dutch shipbuilder of navy vessels, with customers all over the world. For their office in Vlissingen, we are looking for a Skid Coordinator.
The role As part of the F126 frigate project, our client will be constructing a series of four vessels. Each vessel will require the production and coordination of several large skids, ranging from 5 to 25 tons. These skids will include various components, piping, and cabling, which will be assembled in the production hall instead of onboard. This approach allows for improved accessibility and efficiency during the construction process. The skids will be designed with flexibility in mind, incorporating resilient mounting systems to ensure underwater noise reduction and shock resistance. Each skid will be managed as separate project, involving engineering, work preparation, and production. The production work will be outsourced to various building yards in Germany.
This Skid Coordinator position requires a professional who can oversee the coordination of skid activities internally within the engineering department, as well as between work preparation production, logistics, planning, and testing processes. The primary objective is to ensure the timely delivery of skids from the engineering phase, aligned with the agreements made with the building yards. Moreover, the Skid Coordinator will facilitate seamless collaboration with the building yards, overseeing the complete logistics chain, and allowing the successful installation of each skid as a single unit onboard the vessel.
