Canadian floating accommodation services provider Bridgemans Services Group (BSG) has entered into an agreement to provide full-service floatel accommodation and CTV boat landing services for MHI Vestas Offshore Wind in Belgium.
Having recently undergone a refurbishment, Bridgemans’ 142-metre MV Bluefort went into service on 1 May to accommodate construction and maintenance workers at the project site in the North Sea off the coast of Belgium, BSG said.
“We are very pleased to reintroduce the Bluefort after an extensive refit into the offshore accommodations market,” said BSG President, Brian Grange.
“To have been selected by a global leader in wind energy represents a meaningful endorsement of our capabilities, our assets and all members of the Bridgemans team.”
The MV Bluefort features 210 single en suite cabins and can provide periods of up to 5 months of uninterrupted service, according to BSG.
The refit, completed in 2016, included the renovation of all cabins, lounge, dining and common areas, along with upgrades to all mechanical, navigational, IT and operating systems, including enhanced Internet and TV service.
The vessel has also been equipped with a CTV boat landing and a helicopter pad for crew transfers.
The vessel will be based in Europe for charters upcoming, BSG said.
