Shepherd Offshore Comments:

A unique operation that gave Shepherd Offshore Ltd the opportunity to demonstrate our capability at Neptune Energy park. The objective was to create a test environment for our client to allow the bespoke Spreader Beam to be demonstrated.

Shepherd Offshore Operatives worked closely with Lift-Rite personnel to arrange the delivery and assembly of the Spreader Beam and test equipment.
Operatives positioned the CC4800 crane into the test display position at Area J.

Working with Lift-rite personnel, the bespoke rigging arrangement was assembled with technical drawings. The area was prepared for spectators to safely whiteness the test lift, which was completed by Shepherd Offshore Lifting Operatives in a professional manor, in accordance to the client’s specification.
