Shepherd Offshore Comments:

We worked closely with our clients on this one to ensure a speedy delivery and a safe operation. We utilised our heavy lift CC4800 to place 260te reels onto Under-Rollers. The reel was spooled off in 5m sections and safely cut into sections that we could telehandle into skips. Care was taken to ensure that the debris was contained within a safe work area.

Overall the Shepherd Offshore completed the works safely, on budget and within time constraints.
