Sand Fulmar Refit Passing The Baton Safely!

The Sand Fulmar is currently alongside at Chatham Docks undergoing repairs and major upgrade of the vessel’s electrical systems on-board. Working in partnership with our contractors this work has involved the removal and re-instatement of many heavy lifts of equipment including a 15 tonne electrical motor!

Pre-planning meetings and inspections are now routine.

As this refit draws to a close the baton will be going to sea and will then be handed over to the Sand Falcon in April on entering dry-dock for repairs.  It reminds us all of the challenges of working in a hazardous environment and the need for Teamwork to remain safe!
