SBO has been very satisfied with the services of Danbrit Shipping Limited. Danbrits dedicated staff excellently connected with local vendors, were simultaneously able to introduce Swire Blue Ocean as the relative new player in UK Offshore Wind to these contacts, which has proven pivotal and invaluable in aiding SBO to execute our projects to the satisfaction of our clients. We gladly recommend this company as a smaller, hence very efficient and swift acting team, very much able to flow seamless into any large scale and challenging offshore project.

Mark Jeffrey (UK Manager special Steels) SSAB

We were struggling to get the crane/stevedoring availability over the weekend which was imperative for our client. Thor accommodated the needs of the client very quickly on a weekend, which ensured the client was able to continue with the offshore project they were engaged in. Very positive feedback from the client as we were the only region able to accommodate their vessel (they had tried both Great Yarmouth and the Tyne without any luck at the weekend). It certainly bodes well for future jobs/projects.
