|Project:||Gas Offshore Accommodation Unit|
Boulting were contracted for the installation of E&I cabling, containment & equipment associated in the utility and living quarters for an off shore accommodation unit for a gas field in the North Sea.
The work was undertaken prior to sailing offshore to its final location.
The project included all Electrical, Instrumentation, Telecom and Fire/Gas systems throughout the Module. This included cabling and supply to switch room, mess decks and the HVAC room. The accommodation unit includes kitchen, auditorium, modularly built accommodation pods, medical room, and gymnasium.
Some 7,500 cables were laid, with a total of 150,000 m of cable.
Our collaborative and supportive approach ensured we could meet the challenges of a reduced timescale and increased scope of the project.
Our flexible and large workforce enabled a deployment of the necessary skills at the right time to meet the demands of a tight timescale. At its peak some 275 Boulting personnel were involved in the implementation of the project on site meaning that there were no delays
“The quality of the work and the high level of Construction completion is a testament to the skill and hard work of all those involved, and to the excellent teamwork between all the parties at site.
The momentum and determination of the team never waned during the final critical days, and this was a key factor in ensuring that the AUQ went offshore in a condition we can all be proud of.” - Project Construction Manager.
