Shepherd Offshore Comments:

This was a complicated endeavour for Shepherd Offshore involving all of our services, we began by assisting the set-up of under-rollers and tensioners along the quay.

Hotworks provided reel modification and welding complex fabrications to the belly of the reel all with the aim of spooling umbilical to a payoff reel. The packed reel was unspooled and fed onto its temporary home in order to repair a section of the umbilical sheathing.

We employed a wide variety of expertise from our transport solutions, our AP Lift planning and Mobile Crane Support to Hotworks and fabrication. A complex job well done all around and a triumph for the end user.
