An unusual dry-docking operation is set to take place in eastern Canada in the coming months involving four offshore support vessels.

Due to take place in Halifax harbour, Nova Scotia, the fast-track operation is designed to minimise the time that the OSVs are off duty at the Hibernia and Hebron oilfields in neighbouring Newfoundland & Labrador.

This operation is expected to take place over a period of about one month sometime between mid-February and the end of May this year.
