“Burckhardt Compression has overhauled the compressor system within the proposed boundaries of the voyage. Moreover, they detected and repaired additional components to our fullest satisfaction.
We were very happy with the services provided by Burckhardt Compression and its dedicated Fleet Management – even during Easter time.”
