Challenge

A major refit and conversion of Europa, a 650-foot 14-deck former Baltic Sea cruise ferry the company recently acquired, into a luxurious full-service floatel accommodation vessel that can be quickly deployed to accommodate industrial workforces in any region of the world.

 

Solution

Bridgemans  completed a major refit and conversion of Europa, a 650-foot 14-deck former Baltic Sea cruise ferry into a luxurious full-service floatel accommodation vessel. It took 800 workers just 33 days, working around the clock 24/7 to complete the refit and deliver the vessel successfully to contract on time and on budget.

“Europa will be the most luxuriously appointed industrial accommodations vessel in the world,” says Brian Grange, president of Bridgemans. “Our strategy is to differentiate our Floatels as strictly first-class accommodations vessels that will not only ensure that workers are securely and comfortable housed, but will ultimately serve to assist our clients in retaining a critical mass of skilled workers they need to be successful in their operations.”
