French term or phrase: Compresseur d'air sur skid
This is part of a list of equipment held by various ports for cleaning up pollution and includes motor pumps, absorbant foam etc.

This is clearly an air compressor, but what does 'sur skid' mean?

All help gratefully received.

agree  xxxBourth: They possibly did once skid (could be towed), but these days it's just a steel frame on which equipment is mounted, usually for temporary locations such as oil prospecting, construction sites, etc.
