The North Sea’s largest jack up accommodation unit with 447 single cabins, has arrived in Eydehavn for hook up and final commissioning before mobilising for Ekofisk Field and the client ConocoPhillips.
The accommodation unit "Haven" has been built for Master Marine by Drydocks World, Graha Shipyard at Batam, Indonesia, and was towed to Eydehav near Arendal for final commissioning.
The vessel will be the North Sea’s largest jack up accommodation unit with 447 single cabins. It has been customized and will be outfitted to meet ConocoPhillips and the authorities’ requirements for a state-of-the-art accommodation unit on Ekofisk field.
Master Marine says this delivery marks an important milestone in the history of the company. It is the first of two innovative jack-up construction vessels that the company ordered in 2007.
The L205 has been transported to Norway by Dockwise Shipping B.V.’s heavy lift vessel “Treasure”.
A press release states that Master Marine’s newbuild represents a positive turn in a volatile period for the Norwegian offshore supplier industry. The project has secured business for a number of subcontractors and secured jobs in the industry.
