ELA gets DNV certification for offshore accommodation containers

ELA Container Offshore has gained the DNV 2.7-2 certification for its offshore accommodation containers.

According to the company, the DNV 2.7-2 certification addresses key safety aspects required for offshore containers to comply with the industry standards like SOLAS and MODU codes.

Hans Gatzemeier, Managing Director of ELA Container Offshore, said: “DNV 2.7-2 describes safety requirements for temporary offshore container modules. Whereas DNV 2.7-1 is focusing on lifting and transportation of offshore modules, accordingly is addressing the structure and strength of the module; DNV 2.7-2 incorporates these structural aspects relating to in-service operations. Besides fire protection, the main focus is on electrical installations and requirements, based on international IEC standards and safety related topics in order to maintain a safe working environment on offshore platforms or vessels.”

ELA said that its modular system provides flexibility depending on the customers requirements. For example, the units can be provided as office room, recreation room, galley and dining rooms as well as living quarters and changing rooms.

ELA Container Offshore has recently been revealed as the Platinum Sponsor of the Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2016. This exhibition will take place at the Rai Amsterdam Convention Center in the Netherlands from October 25 – 26, 2016, where ELA will showcase several offshore accommodation modules.
