LQT Industries builds accommodation unit for Sakhalin platform
- Business & Finance
LQT Industries, LLC has built and commissioned a subarctic aluminum accommodation facility to be used by a global energy company on a drilling platform off the coast of Sakhalin Island, Russia.
The facility consists of ten aluminum modular units made up of living quarters, recreation rooms, and utility rooms to accommodate ninety-six personnel on a drilling platform.
The exterior stairs and walkways included with the facility are completely enclosed with aluminum barriers to protect the occupants from the harsh weather environments the subarctic region produces.
The facility was designed and built to comply with Russian regulatory groups, including certifications from GOST (Russian State Union Standard) and IPEIG.
The construction of the facility was performed at LQT’s facility in Abbeville, LA and then disassembled and transported by truck to the Port of Houston where it was shipped to Sakhalin Island, Russia. LQT deployed eight employees to Russia to provide management support for the assembly and commissioning of the facility where they received three different awards for outstanding safety awareness and safe work practices, the company said in the release.
LQT Industries, LLC is a full-service provider of accommodation facilities, electrical buildings, design-build construction services, and support services to the oil and gas industry.
