Harkand completed the project management and engineering for the mobilization of Siem Spearfish in Port Fourchon, Louisiana after arriving just nine days earlier from the Vard facility in Norway. The newbuild multi-purpose service vessel (MPSV) was designed and built with input from Harkand – particularly around the deck layout to increase the efficiency for mobilization and demobilization.
