The demanding offshore piling works were carried out utilizing sate of the art GPS based positioning equipment for the platforms and rigs to enable high tolerance control.
Due to Julius Berger’s strong commitment to an accident and incident free environment, the project was completed successfully and LTI-fee despite a difficult offshore HSE environment.
