Bergen Group’s Hanøytangen yard is preparing to host the Floatel Superior after winning a contract for various yard services and modification work over a three week period later this month.
The rig is scheduled to arrive in mid-February.
Floatel Superior is an accommodation and construction support vessel with 440 bed accommodations, all single bed cabins, or 512 using double bed occupancy. The vessel is designed to meet the most demanding regulatory requirements for operating in the harshest environmental conditions in the world. Floatel Superior was delivered from Keppel Shipyard in Singapore in early 2010.
Blasted out of solid bed rock at Askøy, north of Bergen, the Hanøytangen yard has one of Europe’s largest dry docks and the company notes they have carried out several extensive operations on different drilling rigs over the last years.
