Shepherd Offshore Comments:

High level of planning & coordination.
Additional time setting up a customized lifting arrangement working at height
Complex Heavy Lift, with a particular focus on protection of furniture. The lifts barge to Quay SPMT was then transferred by SPMT to over cranes at the drydock to be top and tailed / then lifted into the drydock concrete gravity base. Overall efficient and safe performance supporting a ground breaking new design in offshore wind turbines.
