Offshore Super Center
ABS constructed a highly customized, offshore certified “Super Center” to be used on the Atwood Deepwater Condor. The 20′ x 35′ deep water building included MWD space, a conference room, and mud logging area all for use by different service providers.
The concept of combining multiple service units into one offshore building is gaining favor among offshore operators who recognize the financial and logistical benefits of such practices. Notably, only one building must be transported to the rig site, and a single offloading is required to transfer the building to the rig, which all translates to minimal rig downtime, significantly reduced costs, and fewer logistical hassles. The super-center concept also promises to further set OI and ABS apart from competitors. In-house manufacturing and custom design allow us to construct buildings for any combination of services, any size or layout, and to fulfill any certification requirements, including DNV, ABS and Norsok.
