With projects getting further from shore, there will be an ever greater focus on accommodation for workers at sea.
Holland Accommodation Rentals provides modules for offshore projects. Each module includes bedrooms with en suite bathroom, wardrobe, telephone and internet connection, a mess room, TV room, medical suite, fitness and laundry rooms.
The modules have been deployed to a number of wind projects in the North Sea, including Wikinger and at the BorWin 1 substation.
Each module can accomodate up to 20 people for weeks on end and can be stacked on one another.
But accommodation is becoming a greater problem for the industry. In January, Vattenfall revealed plans for an accommodation platform to be built near its 288MW DanTysk project which could house up to 50 people all year round.
