Hertel offers a unique portfolio, from the architectural outfitting of offshore installations, to the design and fabrication of accommodation modules and containerised solutions. Hertel’s offshore division is able to handle turnkey multi-discipline projects of various magnitudes, from small projects to large multi-million contracts.

In this time Hertel has grown and expanded into a multi-industry services provider with a global network of over 12,000 employees. With operations in over 2o countries and projects in a further 26, Hertel is a global organisation that is able to deliver local knowledge and skills.

Modular timesave cabins

When selecting components for our modular cabins, reducing material, manufacturing, installation and commissioning costs are key factors. Maintenance is kept to an absolute minimum and in the first instance or, if possible, is designed out or avoided. The cabin house components minimise the need for commissioning activities after cabin installation.

Innovative changes to past practice and processes are considered and incorporated into the design, minimising the need to enter into the units when completing service connections.
