Shepherd Offshore Comments:

“Great communication between the client and Shepherd Offshore personal, laid the foundation for a smooth operation. In the initiation stage of the project, we looked at all the relevant lifting information and pulled together pre-project plans for operations, including specific berthing, lifting and storage plans. Choosing Neptune Energy Park, for the mobile crane capability and straight to route long term storage availability.

The operations entailed utilising the CC4800 and rigging the saddles up and then lifting from the vessel to the Quay, Once lifted to the Quay, they were safely de-rigged and loaded to transport via fork truck, straight to long term storage in specific combinations to client’s scope.

Working hard, the team successfully supported our client on each stage of the project and fulfilled the scope of work. Job well done to all involved for this auxiliary discharge.”
