As the number of offshore renewables projects continues to increase, so does the requirement for flexible offshore accommodation solutions. In response to the growth, the Ferguson Group’s product offering provides flexible living and working solutions to accommodate the number of workers needed to undertake these projects.
The Ferguson Group is one of the world’s leading suppliers of DNV 2.7-1 / EN12079 certified offshore containers, refrigeration/freezer modules, workspace modules and accommodation solutions to the global energy industry since its establishment in 1976. Today the Group employs over 200 people at its offices and facilities in the UK, Norway, Australia, Singapore and UAE.
Accommodation and workspace modules supporting the offshore renewables sector
Ferguson Group’s module range contains several designs for offshore accommodation modules along with workspace modules including offices, laboratories, test cabins, MWD and LWD cabins and workshops. Ancillary modules such as recreation rooms, gymnasiums, locker rooms, galley/mess rooms, laundry rooms and medic suites can be supplied to supplement larger accommodation complexes to support offshore energy projects.
Standard accommodation modules are available in 10.3m, 7.6m and 6m sizes while the standard workspace modules are available in 10.3m, 7.6m, 6m, 4.8m, 4.5m and 4m sizes. Modules can house between one and eight POB (Persons On Board), depending on internal layout. These fit-for-purpose high quality units can be further adapted to suit specific requirements and they offer an attractive alternative to fully bespoke modules for a wide variety of applications with a fast turnaround from order to delivery.
Dedicated to offering a flexible and personal service, Ferguson Group listens to the market and its customers, which has resulted in high quality, innovative products that improve the safety, comfort and efficiency of those working in the offshore renewables sector.
Depending on client requirements, Ferguson Group’s range of A60 modules can be provided as standalone or can be linked and stacked (up to four high) to form multi-module complexes. An entire complex can be constructed to precise specifications using the range of units available. The complex can be built by stacking the required modules, linking them with hallways and/or stairways to form a large and robust accommodation complex.
The modules are designed to make hook-up and commissioning straightforward and quick. Whether individual or multiple units, the design and construction to DNV standards enables engineers to install the units in the shortest possible time.
