Our Services – Decommissioning Marine (Swans Energy Park Wet Dock)

In 2021 Shepherd Offshore purchased  Swans Energy Park and acquired the Swans Energy Park Wet dock. The wet dock is supported by developed infrastructure heavy lifting capabilities. It measures 56 meters wide and 194 meters long with a half-tide 2.5m deep dock, suitable for construction projects, barge/ RoRo load-outs, lay by and marine testing.

Decommissioning works in the Swans Energy Park wet dock are supported by our skilled team of technical and practical personnel, who are experienced in handling a multitude of challenging industry projects. With an established pool of resources to call upon, we consistently deliver highly successful projects and outcomes.
