Which regular inspections of the offshore containers are carried out?

All our offshore containers are checked thoroughly to company standards before they are deployed. This includes testing all electrical components, ensuring adequate air circulation and testing of the wastewater and freshwater systems to name a few. All these tests are performed by our staff and completed prior to shipping the units. In addition to our company testing protocols, we have to comply with the mandatory external inspections as well. As the units are DNV2.7-1 or DNV2.7-3 certified, they are re-certified annually and have NDT (non-destructive testing) at least once per 48 months. Standard testing is done by certified external parties, but should the customer have any particular request or requirement, we are open to third party inspections as well.

How can offshore containers on Oil Rigs and Gas Production Platforms be used?

The offshore containers can be furnished as living quarters, office rooms, meeting rooms, dining rooms, kitchens as well as sanitary rooms and toilets, locker rooms, laundry rooms and drying rooms. Furthermore, they can be used as recreation rooms, gyms, small galleys, storage facilities and more.

What services are you offering?

Fast, free and optimized 3-D CAD planning for all requirements and the preparation of a detailed quotation in the shortest possible time is standard with us. For more extensive enquiries, we also offer integrated, complete support and wastewater systems, e-distributors and foundations for load distribution on platforms. We are also available to our customers for after-sales services such as extensions and repairs.

How long does it usually take from enquiry to offer?

Of course, we need some information before we can start planning. We need to know how many people need to be accommodated and whether additional facilities such as a fitness room or a dining area with kitchen are required. Once we also know how much space is available and where we need to deliver, we can start planning. We are able to produce a 3-D drawing and a quotation within two hours. We also send you all available certificates so you can discuss the formalities in advance.

How is the wastewater handled?

The disposal of wastewater is one of the biggest problems in offshore projects. To overcome this problem, we can offer our 20ft ELA Offshore Wastewater Tank. This can be easily combined with all other 20ft ELA Offshore Accommodation Containers. Its capacity is approx. 5m², which is sufficient for about 25-30 days at a quantity of wastewater of 150 liters per day.
