How high can the Offshore Containers on Barges and Pontoons be stacked up?
Due to clever statics and offshore certifications our 20ft and 33ft offshore containers can be stacked up to four floors in order to save space on a barge, pontoon or any other offshore facility.
What is the maximum rental period of an ELA Offshore Container?
There is no limitation to the length of the rental period. Our offshore containers are mostly rented for a period of two to eight months. But there are also contracts with a rental period of more than one year.
How are the offshore containers transported and installed on the Barge or Pontoon?
In production, the offshore containers are pre-assembled according to their destination so that they can be quickly connected upon arrival. In case of larger container systems, appropriate markings indicate the assembly sequence, which is immensely important for logistics. Thanks to the roadworthy size of the individual modules, they can be easily transported by truck to the port and loaded onto the ship there. The mobile rooms have so called "handover points" where they can be connected to the system on board or on the platform. They are quickly integrated into the safety and communication system.
How long does it normally take from the enquiry to the offer?
Of course, we need some information before we can plan. We need to know how many people will be accommodated on the barge and if additional facilities such as a fitness room or a dining area with kitchen are required. Once we know the available space and the location, the planning can start. We can create a 3-D drawing and make a quote in two hours. We can provide all available certificates beforehand, so that you can discuss the formalities in advance.
When should an offshore container be bought and when should it be rented?
It depends on the rental period. If the period exceeds two years, you should consider whether it makes sense to buy the offshore container. If it is clear from the beginning that a construction project will take more than two years, it is always advisable to buy it. ELA can offer attractive financing options here. If you expect the project to last for more than two years during the rental period, you can also buy a rental offshore container. With the purchase of containers, there are no limits to our possibilities. We can modify existing CSC or DNV containers, adapt one of our rental modules or build a 100% customized solution from scratch.
