Accommodation Offshore - Semi-submersibles Or Not?

Accommodation offshore is a very important aspect of running any form of offshore operation – particularly in the oil industry. As workers need to stay at sea for months on end, the accommodation needs to be viable, and resistant to the dangers of changeable and adverse weather conditions out in the sea.

However, technology is changing the way offshore accommodation is crafted. Not only that, but regulations and operating requirements continue to be redefined – meaning that offshore operators need to be continually aware and up-to-date on the newest technologies and guidelines in regards to their operators' rights. In recent years, there have been a number of semi-submersible advancements in regards to accommodation with vessels built to navigate the harsh conditions presented by the North Sea. Semi-submersible technology also allows accommodation vessels to be more adaptable to wave conditions. Whereas previously many accommodation vessels were barges that were reliant on being towed into position by tugs or heavy boats, semi-submersibles allow for better integration of technology – such as dynamic positioning that helps the accommodation vessel propel itself. However, accommodation vessels can still come in a range of different forms. Whatever their technical capabilities, you need to ensure that they are run in a safe and cost-effective manner. With many offshore operators currently concerned about their expenditure, solutions are being sought regarding how to address these two concerns.
