ELA Container Offshore GmbH delivered an Offshore Office Container to Heerema Marine Contractors. The container was placed on board their Semi Submersible Crane Vessel (SSCV) Thialf and was used as a control room to operate their anchor winches.

Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) is a global marine contractor in the international offshore oil and gas industry and excels at transporting, installing and removing offshore facilities. These include fixed and floating structures, subsea pipelines and infrastructures in shallow waters, deep and ultra-deep waters.

The Thialf is their largest SSCV and capable of a tandem lift of 14,200 tonnes (15,600 short tons). Its two cranes provide for a depth reach lowering capability as well as a heavy lift capacity to install topsides. This multi-functional dynamic positioned SSCV is customized for the installation of foundations, moorings, SPARs, TLPs, and integrated topsides, as well as pipelines and flowlines.

“Originally HMC was looking for a 10-foot office container to monitor the work. However we managed to convince them in using our standard 20-foot offshore office container to serve as a control room. The container was needed on short notice and we managed to adjust the interior for installing their monitors and further inventory,” explains Frank ter Haak, Business Development Manager Netherlands at ELA Container Offshore GmbH. “The container was placed on top of our winch container and a stairway and platform was built from scaffolding, providing us a perfect view on the hoses over the stern of the Thialf. We were very pleased with the way things were handled by ELA Container Offshore,” says Water de Winter, Equipment Management NFE at HMC.

“During past offshore projects we recognized the need to deliver containers immediately or just within a few days. To be able to promise and realize an on-time delivery to our clients, we start producing new containers for our fleet as soon as stock is low. Again this was a perfect example of how quick we can provide a solution to our clients. We are of course delighted and proud to have served Heerema Marine Contractors this way and we hope to have demonstrated our quality product and excellent service,” says Managing Director of ELA Container Offshore GmbH, Hans Gatzemeier.
