HB Rentals has net contracts worth more than £1million for the manufacture of workshops, local equipment rooms and pressurised offshore service modules for multiple clients.
The firm said it was commissioned by Prosafe to design, manufacture and supply two DNV Safe Area certified welding workshops for the Safe Zephyrus semi-submersible accommodation vessel, operating offshore Norway.
It was also hired to design, manufacture and supply a local equipment room by OneSubsea for subsea operations in the Taurus Libra field, offshore Egypt.
HB Rentals managing director Norman Porter said: “At a time when the industry is experiencing significant challenges, these multiple contracts in our expanding build for sale division represent good news not only for us but for the sector in the North-east of Scotland as a whole.
“The personnel and facilities we have in our workshop and service premises have once again enabled us to design and create a range of modules to the very highest standards, which we hope will provide an environment to assist our clients in achieving their targets.”
The firm was also commissioned by Semco Maritime to supply a DNV 2.7-1, A60, Zone II rated pressurised offshore service module for subsea services in the UK sector of the North Sea.
All of the modules were designed and manufactured at HB Rentals’ service facilties in Sauchen, Aberdeenshire.
