PMG have been kept busy lately, supporting offshore servicing of a number of US Navy ships visiting Townsville during June and July 2017 for the training exercise Talisman Saber.
We have provided offshore fendered breasting barges suitable to berth ferries against, tug support, Landing Craft services for stores supply and rubbish removal, and ferry services to transfer US Navy personnel between the ships anchored offshore, and the Townsville mainland. During these works we have been supported by local providers Riverside and Sealink. We have also been providing in port security vessel services, and fendering services, for Australian Navy ships berthing within Townsville port.
The job has been demanding and ever changing, but with a great can do attitude displayed by our crews, and effective planning and co-ordination, this job has been a great success.
