The COVID 19 pandemic has resulted in most work being delayed unless deemed essential under the Government guidelines. The oil industry is considered essential and we recently undertook a short mobilisation of a vessel during these difficult times.
We also had to ensure that social distancing could be maintained while working on the vessel. The vessels crew and some Key workers were tested for the virus and quarantined for a week in a hotel prior to the job starting.
The job was thoroughly planned by the client with a separate gangway onto the working deck and additional messing and washing shore facilities provided to keep the ships staff and key workers distanced from the others.
The weather played its part with good bright weather although the night shift was cold under the clear sky.
