ELA Containers develops new offshore container type
HAREN, Germany -- ELA Container Offshore GmbH announced the development of a new offshore container type: a 10 m x 3 m wide, high-cube accommodation container with interior hallway and two cabins. The first 24 containers of this new type have already been built at the premises in Haren, Germany. ELA Offshore managed to deliver all required containers from scratch in only 3 months from project kick-off, including design and development up to turnkey delivery on an offshore converter station in the German North Sea.

The new units accord with the regulations of DNVGL-ST-E273 Portable Offshore Units, April 2016, and ST-E272 2.7-2 Offshore Service Modules Section 3, February 2016. In addition, the containers correspond to HSE. All containers have fire detectors, fire extinguishers and emergency escape ways. After connection to the fire fighting-system of the platform as well as the PAGA system, the highest safety standards are guarded.
A modern and appealing wooden-look for the cabinets and beds, as well as a yacht flooring create more comfort and improve the feel-good factor. Sufficient room space, single sleeper rooms, beds with sizes from L = 2100 mm x W = 1000 mm, ensuite bathrooms, 32-in. flatscreen TV, large windows with curtains and very good insulation for high end noise reduction also convinced the German Authorities. They checked everything according to German ASR-regulations.
The 2-4 pax containers (single or double cabins) provide not only more space per person, but also an inner hallway between the two living cabins, which makes outdoor gangways obsolete. Despite their size and high-end accommodation the containers do not exceed the weight of 9.5 tons.
Available for sale and rent, the new 33-ft container will add a new standard to the already existing 20-ft ELA Offshore Accommodation Containers. “With the new type we offer more possibilities of accommodating the people working offshore. Depending on quantity of extra accommodations needed and available space on deck, we can provide our clients with the best and most cost effective mobile accommodation solution," says Hans Gatzemeier, managing director of ELA Container Offshore GmbH.
