The redevelopment of the former Neptune shipyard has created a site of over 80 acres with an operational quay edge, deep water access and heavy loadout capability. Like the Offshore Technology Park, NEP has a world class reputation in service, cost-effectiveness, safety, efficiency and flexibility.
