Ferguson Norge AS, part of the Ferguson Group, specialists in the rental of offshore containers, refrigeration/chiller modules, engineering modules and accommodation solutions to the offshore energy sector, has increased its fleet in Norway ahead of this year’s Offshore Technology Days (OTD) exhibition.

Ferguson Norge has invested in a number of new offshore containers and workspace units, which will be available from its bases in Stavanger, Bergen and Kristiansund. The units are accredited to DNV 2.7-1 and also NORSOK R-002, to ensure that specific standards in the Norwegian market are met.

The group’s Norwegian operation has also added several new Lifting Frames to its fleet. The frames, which are the ideal method for transporting special cargo to and from offshore locations, have been manufactured to full DNV 2.7-3 standards, enabling the lifting frames to lift over 25 metric tons.

Morten Smith, General Manager – Ferguson Norge AS said, “ We have experienced growing demand in Norway and the North Sea, which has increased even further following our relocation to a purpose-built office in Stavanger last year. As our clients’ requirements continue to grow, we will continue to expand our product range to meet their needs.”
