The project was completed successfully and on schedule despite the constraints of working within the confined space of the vessel and the lack of drawings available. The team also experienced a challenge when it came to integrating the ballast water treatment plant with the on-board automation system. However, through thorough planning and strong communication between parties, the job was finished with outstanding craftsmanship and exceeded the client’s expectations.

Client Feedback

“Excellent job. The crew was disciplined, professional and ensured that all the jobs were completed on time and up to standard. Quality work, we would recommend CTS Offshore and Marine for future projects.”
