Richmond, BC, Canada, November 2019 – Bridgemans’ well-known floatel, the MV Bluefort, has arrived in the The Bahamas and is currently supporting the cruise ship industry by providing accommodations for workers.
The Bluefort is one of the best values in today’s market. Ample amenities and services offered to the full extent you would expect in an alongside or offshore accommodation vessel. With the capability to be self-contained for extended periods of time, and ample storage and office facilities, the Bluefort makes an ideal “mobile command centre” for any project whether construction, industrial or oil and gas.
Brian Grange, President of Bridgemans Services Group, offers his remarks: “In a situation where we would typically reposition the floatel back to Europe, we made the executive decision to route the vessel to the Bahamas and provide accommodations both alongside or offshore for those needing short term solutions”.
The MV Bluefort will be based in Freeport, Bahamas and will be available for charter during the upcoming months.
