Offshore accommodation specialist HB Rentals has secured a rental contract worth in excess of seven figures for the supply of a modularised temporary living complex for 28 people on an ABS classed subsea support vessel of a leading Danish offshore marine services provider.

The project is for the supply of 14 two-person ABS-approved accommodation modules from HB Rentals’ standard rental fleet, as well as additional auxiliary equipment including walkways, porches, stairs, sewage transfer pumps and electrical power distribution panels.

The eight-month contract has the potential for further extensions and will see mobilisation from the company’s Aberdeen base, with installation and commissioning of the modules on board the vessel located offshore Esbjerg, Denmark.

The contract builds on HB Rentals’ existing relationship with the offshore marine services provider, as it was previously awarded an on-going rental agreement for the supply of ABS approved accommodation modules on-board one of its sister vessels, in 2018.

The modules will be linked and stacked over two levels to form an enclosed living quarter complex with a stand-alone fire detection system. All cabins are en-suite and include separate workstations and comfortable sitting areas.

Norman Porter, managing director HB Rentals Limited, comments, “We are delighted to have extended our relationship by being awarded this significant contract from a long-established client. Despite the current challenging environment, we are seeing a steady demand from both local and international markets for our products.”

“We are continuing to diversify our business to meet changing customer requirements and our client’s confidence in us is testament that we are providing the offshore accommodation market with appropriate solutions,” adds Porter.
