Posted by Michelle Howard

ELA Container Offshore GmbH delivered an offshore office container to Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC), a marine contractor in the international offshore oil and gas industry.
The container was placed on board semisubmersible crane vessel (SSCV) Thialf and was used as a control room to operate their anchor winches.
The Thialf is HMC's largest SSCV, capable of a tandem lift of 15,600 tons. Its two cranes provide for a depth reach lowering capability as well as a heavy lift capacity to install topsides. This multi-functional dynamic positioned SSCV is customized for the installation of foundations, moorings, SPARs, TLPs and integrated topsides, as well as pipelines and flowlines.
"Originally HMC was looking for a 10ft office container to monitor the work. However we managed to convince them in using our standard 20ft offshore office container to serve as a control room. The container was needed on short notice and we managed to adjust the interior for installing their monitors and further inventory", explains Frank ter Haak, Business Development Manager Netherlands at ELA Container Offshore GmbH. "The container was placed on top of our winch container and a stairway and platform was built from scaffolding, providing us a perfect view on the hoses over the stern of the Thialf," said Water de Winter, Equipment Management NFE at HMC.
