The working relationship between Cores Worldwide and SuperPort Marine Services is one that we value deeply. It’s so much easier to meet the challenges of running a business when the relationship, such as we have, with Cores regularly exceeds expectations.

Having observed the workmanship and work ethics of Cores Worldwide both from the customer’s perspective as well as from the co-worker’s perspective, I would not hesitate to recommend them to any prospective employer. I have complete confidence in the ability of Cores Worldwide to perform any marine/diesel related task to the complete satisfaction of the ship owner.

Thank you very much for the photographs.  There are a couple of things that I notice right away:  Andrew Ryan – part owner of CORES is engaged; PPE is in use; slings are fresh, the right size, and lashed to a strong structure; the crank journals are protected and the crank is evenly supported by wooden shims; the exterior of the ship is protected from the chain falls, the CORES employee is engaged and enjoys his work; the load is being controlled in the air; the paint on the vessel looks good, the gasket on the door looks fresh and fire rated.
Very refreshing to me to get an update. Looks professional. The photo says a thousand words and I appreciate all of the effort that it takes to get it right.  Pass along my regards to Andrew and Doug and my acknowledgement that we think that they are doing an excellent job for us in overhauling these engines.

All six engines and the two generators were removed from the Firebird today. The rigging and removal went extremely well. My hat goes off to Andrew and his crew from Cores. In my nearly thirty years of experience, I have never saw such a smooth and coordinated job. The soft patch was removed at 0830 and 15 tons of engines and generators were rigged out and removed from the vessel. The engines were then blocked and secured for transport on a flatbed, which drove away from the jetty at 14:00.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank-you for your teams’ hard work and professional approach in assisting our group in our past contracts completed at Stora-Enso and The IWK Hospital. Not very often do we have the opportunity to work with a group that shares the same type of work ethic and service philosophy as we do at Mobile Valve.
I would be happy to recommend your company in any future ventures you have.

Cores Worldwide has assisted us in completing a few key projects over the past few years. I found them to be a talented, professional team and a pleasure to work with on all accounts.

Our Vessel had been laid up for over 18 months and we were on a tight schedule to get the vessel operational and re-certified and all four main engines (Fairbanks Morse 38 D8 1/8) required significant overhaul. Cores Worldwide was called in to provide both parts and mechanics to complete this task. The team assigned did an excellent job in not only bringing the main engines up to manufacturer's standards but also to meet stiff Regulatory & Classification Society requirements. Parts not planned for, were acquired at reasonable costs and due mainly to the support we received from Cores Worldwide, we were able to meet our departure schedule and to date have had no significant issues with the main engines that Cores Worldwide overhauled. I would not hesitate in recommending Cores Worldwide as they met all my expectations in quality, schedule, and budget.
