Van Oord

ELA Container Offshore GmbH delivered two offshore offices, as well as six offshore living quarters to the Dutch company Van Oord. They will be used on Van Oord’s accommodation pontoon ‘Astrachan’. The ‘Astrachan’ is 60m-long and 15m-wide and already has accommodation facilities on board.

"For this project we were in need of extra accommodation and hence, we decided in favour of the flexible solutions ELA offers," say Gerrit Jansen, project manager at Van Oord.

One ELA employee was on site to install the containers on the ‘Astrachan’ including all connections such as pipes and cables. The assembled complex is two storeys high with first level consisting of two offshore living quarters and two offshore office containers with four wastewater tanks attached below. The second floor consists of four offshore living quarters. Moreover, 16 gangways, three small stairs and two stairways complete the structure.

"Because we pre-assembled our containers during production in Germany, we were able to guarantee a quick assembly on site. Assembly of the containers was achieved smoothy and efficiently to our utmost satisfaction," says Frank ter Haak, Business Development Manager at ELA Container Offshore GmbH.

ELA Offshore Containers are available for sale and for rent. This ensures high-flexibility for clients when planning their various projects.

"The containers are of a very high-quality, very practicable and are equipped with single cabins for each of our employees. For us, it is therefore worthwhile to use them also in the future," says Gerrit Jansen, project manager at Van Oord.
