Due to large permanent accommodation facilities on board the West African Ventures' DP-3 multipurpose fleet, all vessels can be deployed on accommodation mode in any offshore environment.
The accommodation vessels remain permanently alongside the FPSO's with their Dynamic Positioning Systems working 24 hours a day.
They are connected to the FPSO by way of hydraulic heave compensated gangways varying in length between 32.5 and 42.5 meters.
With cranes installed varying between 270 and 800 t, the vessels also regularly assist the FPSO with lifting services during the accommodation / hook-up projects.
The large deck space on our 'flotels' allows us to expand the accommodation capacity using either a Portable Accommodation Block (PAB) or demountable accommodation units, which can increase the total amount of POB up to 675.
