standard for quality.

Project Gallery


Due to the age of the ship, there was a significant amount of steelwork required. Additionally, since numerous modifications had been carried out over the lifetime of the vessel, the drawings provided were no longer accurate. Fortunately, our team conducted a pre-evaluation to get a sense of these potential obstacles early on.

CTS worked closely with the owners to avoid any delays and was able to complete the project safely and on schedule. Columbia Cruise Services was impressed by our team’s expertise and requested for CTS to assist with future projects.

Client Feedback

“I want to commend CTS’s team for their exceptional work. Their team was responsive and adaptable when it came to completing all planned and unplanned tasks. I would recommend CTS Offshore and Marine’s services to others. We look forward to working with them on future projects.”
