Semco Maritime said a 147-room hotel module will be lifted on board the Maersk Guardian to finalise a major conversion of the upcoming hotel rig.
It comes after design and construction of a turnkey accommodation module was completed.
The company said it is now preparing the final installation eight months after the order was placed.
The module was built and outfitted by Semco Maritime and its collaboration partners in Gdynia, Poland.
It was loaded onto a barge last week to be sailed to Frederikshavn, Denmark.
The 1,200-ton module will be lifted from the and installed on board the Maersk Guardian today and tomorrow by a floating crane.
Semco vice president Nikolaj Vejlgaard said: “The heavy lifting markers the final intense part of the project, where the modules are to be installed and hooked-up on the rig.
“Combined with additional modifications of the rig performed simultaneously with the module construction, the former jack-up rig can now be approved and used as a hotel rig.”
