Ostend, Belgium, December 2017 – Bridgemans Services Group (BSG) has entered an agreement to provide full-service floatel accommodations and CTV boat landing services for MHI Vestas Belgium.
Having recently undergone an extensive refurbishment, Bridgemans’ 142-metre MV Bluefort went into service on May 1 to accommodate construction and maintenance workers at the project site in the North Sea off the coast of Belgium.
“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 recently refit MV Bluefort is one of the most modern, efficient and versatile floatel solutions available in today’s marketplace. Featuring 210 single ensuite cabins, rapid occupant scalability, exceptional fuel efficiency and high-capacity storage facilities, the Bluefort can provide extended periods of up to 5 months of uninterrupted service to provide premium level accommodations, hotel and catering services at any inshore or offshore location.
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 CTV boat landing and helicopter pad for crew transfers. The vessel will be based in Europe for charters upcoming.
