After the first two campaigns, this year the Bokalift 1 was assisted by our heavy transport vessel Mighty Servant 3, which transported a number of jackets from Taipei to the offshore wind farm. Our construction support vessels BOKA Atlantic and BOKA Tiamat provided essential supporting activities.”
