INTERNATIONAL offshore-accommodation specialist Ferguson Modular, part of Inverurie-based Ferguson Group, announced the release of 50 new units into its hire fleet yesterday.
The £3.5million investment in the freezer and workspace units is part of Ferguson Modular’s strategy to expand the range and volume in the fleet.
Release of the units follows on from the Ferguson Group’s announcement last week of a new operation by Ferguson Modular to offer accommodation barges.
The AMT Explorer will be available from August 1 and negotiations are under way for Ferguson Modular to purchase a second barge to be on offer from later this year.
Ferguson Group employs more than 130 people worldwide through its divisions serving the offshore-container rental and accommodation-module markets.
The group has operations in all major global oil and gas locations.
