The modules were placed on board the vessel in the port of Amsterdam.

H2M took care of the transport and installation of the modules, stairs and walkways, linking kits, sewage pumps and transformers and additionally installed a complete Heli-winch area on top of the modules.

H2M can provide a full-service solution, including engineering, transport, installation, hook-up, commissioning and service during the period of use.

The sleeper modules, each equipped with two comfortable single-bed cabins, are expected to be utilised until the beginning of 2018. Each cabin is fitted out with secure lockers, desk, chair, 32-inch flat-screen TV, internet connection and Wi-Fi, plus its own sanitary room with shower, chair, toilet and sink.

All H2M modules are manufactured to the highest industry standards: DNV 2.7-1, EN 12079 and ATEX, including compliance with IMO/SOLAS regulatory requirements for A60 fire protection, withstanding even the most hostile offshore and marine environments. Safety-monitoring systems are incorporated, including an integrated fire and gas, pressurisation and emergency shutdown system suitable for Safe Zone and, optional, Zone 2 hazardous area application.
