Nine months after leaving our shores, the SR40 has landed safely back in Brisbane. Some 4300kms by sea, Kwajalein Island has been the base for our foundation works with General Dynamics Mission Systems.
The logistics of travel for staff was challenging, while transporting the rig and all tools and materials required to undertake foundation piling works was an achievement in itself.
Our thanks to the staff for the time away from home and families, while finding ways to deal with logistical issues related to isolated regions and continuing to work hard. Our thanks also to International Logistics for their assistance with transportation and coordination.
The resourcefulness and work ethic of staff was displayed time and again throughout the months. For example, due to supply issues and daytime temperatures reaching 48 degrees, some of the work had to be undertaken at night operating under lights.
