HB Rentals celebrates successful year
Dubai, November 10, 2011
Global offshore accommodation specialist to the oil and gas industry, HB Rentals, will award several contracts in the UAE in celebration of a successful year, following the opening of its first Middle East base in the Emirates last year.
A project was recently commissioned with Abu Dhabi-based Gulf Marine Services (GMS). The agreement is to provide the rental of 10 eight-man accommodation modules and two recreation rooms along with stairways and walkways for GMS’ vessel, Endeavour.
HB Rentals provided full site installation support, including hook up and commissioning of the complex on board the vessel, located at Abu Dhabi Port, a statement from the company said.
Another GMS contract win has secured the supply of eight 3-man accommodation units on the Kudeta Lift Boat, located offshore Abu Dhabi. The third success involves the provision of eight offshore accommodation units to the Khwalah vessel also in Abu Dhabi, the statement said.
Rami Miled, business development manager, Middle East, HB Rentals, said: “The opening of our Middle East base in 2010 came as a direct response to demand from clients and falls on the back of several significant contract wins in the region. We anticipate this initial activity will trigger significant future opportunities for us, particularly as exploration and production budgets are expected to rise in the oil and gas industry.
“These contracts highlight the impact HB Rentals has already made with its new ventures in the Middle East. With more than 30 years of experience, and a fleet of more than 500 units, we are more than prepared to continue our investment programme to meet the demands of the region’s buoyant energy market,” he said. – TradeArabia News Service
