ELA Offshore provides Offshore Accommodation for OSV SeaMar Splendid

ELA Container Offshore GmbH delivered an Offshore Living Quarter to Netherlands based SeaMar Services BV in Den Helder. The container was placed on board the Offshore Support Vessel ‘SeaMar Splendid’ and provided extra accommodation for subsea work in the North Sea. “We decided to hire an A60 ELA Offshore Living Quarter with DNV 2.7-2 offshore certification as SeaMar standards demands quality and all rental of additional high critical equipment need to comply to all local and international legislation on- and offshore”, says Sybrand Spijksma, Technical Superintendent at SeaMar Services BV.

For instance the multipurpose offshore support vessel SeaMar Splendid can be utilized for diving support, survey and seismic support work. The operational management of the well-known Walk to Work Vessel ‘Acta Orion’, the flagship of Den Helder based company Acta Marine, is also carried out by SeaMar Services.

“Our standard 20ft offshore living quarter turned out to be the perfect solution on the deck space they had on board. We provided SeaMar with all the necessary documents and technical information so they could discuss with Class to get their approval, make the necessary preparations on board and plan the mobilization well ahead”, explains Frank ter Haak, Business Development Manager Netherlands at ELA Container Offshore GmbH. So by the time SeaMar received the green light for the project the container was placed on board immediately. “With ELA we found a reliable and flexible partner that was able to provide the ideal container immediately and on time.
