Chowder Bay Fixed Boom Replacement
Baseline was engaged to undertake the repair and replacement of the fixed boom within the ship refuelling station at Chowder Bay. Baseline undertook 3 months of detailed planning, underwater surveys, investigations, and risk assessments to design and develop a project execution to mitigate risk and ensure works were completed in a prompt and safe manner whilst managing the expectations of the client and end users.
