What the crew of the Nordic Giant have to say about NINA

Skipper Jarmo Huotari: “When we had to lift three 100-ton spud poles out of the ship, we first did the risk inventory and then we worked out a lifting plan and informed everyone. Although I’m someone who just wants to get on with things, I recognize the
