“The team at Halliday Engineering have consistently helped NSW Ports with their vast experience in the marine industry, which covers breakdowns, upgrades and preventative maintenance work. Halliday’s understand the ports and marine environment, including the specific durability requirements that are required for corrosive atmospheres, as well as working on a ‘permit to work’ system for major hazard facilities.”
