Offshore Support

Skills and strength for offshore support

Offshore operations need strong support - at sea, onshore, and alongside. During the past decades, many offshore projects such as drilling operations, pipe/cable laying, site exploration, and ship-to-ship transfer operations have taken place in the Indian Ocean.

Precise in planning and executions, our wide-ranging solutions cater to customers engaged in various stages of offshore surveys, construction, pipe and cable laying, exploration, extraction and production activities.

GAC Sri Lanka has a fleet of support vessels comprising launches, crew boats and tugs to attend to all your offshore exploration, construction and production needs, while ensuring adherence to stringent HSSE guidelines. Our services include anchor handling, transporting of construction materials, barge and tug support, crew transportation, delivery of supplies and provisions, emergency response, and more.
