Jack-Up Barge has recently placed an order with Malaysian-based Asian Offshore Services (AOS) for additional Zone 2 blast-rated Temporary Living Quarters (TLQs).

Ronald Schukking, Technical and New Building Director at Jack-Up Barge, said of the order, “Our fleet is used for a variety of purposes by contractors and operators from all corners of the offshore sector. We notice an increasing demand for offshore accommodation and have responded accordingly with a significant increase in high quality TLQs. We’re looking forward to offering our clients this extra availability in the near future.”

The order to AOS is for 70 cabins of 4-8 berths and 30 general purpose support cabins, providing Jack-Up Barge with a potential of 560 beds.

The TLQs will all be ABS certified and fulfill Zone 2 Hazardous Area Requirements.

The modules are linkable and stackable, which means they can be configured in a variety of different ways. This flexibility is a major plus, enabling the company to position the modules suitably for projects where there is a requirement for installation activity and also, when accommodation alone is sufficient.
