Shepherd Offshore Comments:

Shepherd Offshore personnel worked closely with our clients to ensure all operations were conducted safely and on time. We utilised our heavy lift CC4800 crane to place 236t reels onto SPMT’s. The reels were transported to the vessel and tandem lifts were conducted to load the reels to the vessel. Shepherd Offshore personnel maintained high Health & Safety standards at all times during lifting operations.

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