Shepherd Offshore Comments:

"Shepherd Offshore was tasked with the long-term berthage of the Global Symphony. Competitive berthage solutions was tasked out here, with the vessel being tied up for just over 3 months. With 130.02m LOA, 24.04m. We ensured that we had several lifting teams, loading throughout the day from quay to vessel. With loading, unloading, burning and releasing of sea fastenings, fabrication works, and magnetic particle inspection. This project was also achieved safely and efficiently, with everyone involved completing it to a high standard".
