HB Rentals Introduces More Compact Accommodation Module to Meet Offshore Requirements in the Middle East

United Arab Emirates, (Nov. 11, 2013) — HB Rentals, global accommodation specialist to the oil and gas industry, has launched an innovative new 18ft four-bed accommodation module to meet client demand for a smaller, lighter accommodation module supporting the Middle East offshore market.

The leading global supplier of modular accommodation systems designed for living and working at remote project sites unveiled its new 18ft module on the first day of ADIPEC, the largest regional oil and gas conference in the Gulf region.

HB Rentals designed, developed and manufactured the new module at its Aberdeen, UK manufacturing facility in response to growing customer demand. Leveraging in-house engineering capabilities, HB developed the new module in five months from concept to delivery, further demonstrating the company's industry leading capability of customising product to market needs.

The ability to stack and link differentiates the A60 DNV unit, appealing to clients operating with limited deck space on certain rigs or others who are governed by specific weight restrictions during operations.

Norman Porter, HB Rentals director for the Eastern Hemisphere, believes the company's latest offering will help it further its reach within the Middle East.

“Our new 18ft accommodation module is yet another product that differentiates HB Rentals as a highly responsive accommodations solution provider in a very dynamic market,” said Porter.

“By listening and responding to our clients with our internal engineering capabilities we developed a unit specifically designed to fit their requirements. We were able to be highly responsive while maintaining the highest standards of quality manufacturing that our company is renowned for. In the Middle East offshore market, as well as other markets that we serve around the world, speed-to-market is essential. This is just one reason why we do a considerable amount of repeat business with our clients.”

HB Rentals business development manager for Middle East and North Africa Region Rami Miled will take the product to market by introducing it to both existing and prospective clients.

He said: “Our new 18ft accommodation module will satisfy a number of different customer needs based on their specific platform requirements where either space or weight is a constraining issue. With this new module, we are helping our customers do more with less.

“This is again a situation in which the Middle East offshore market is helping to drive new product development that we can take to other markets around the world. This is just one more reason why it is critical for us to have a strong presence in the Middle East.

“No matter the continent or location, offshore or onshore, HB Rentals' standard of work will never be compromised.”

HB Rentals is exhibiting at ADIPEC, 10-13 November in Hall 4, stand #4410.
