HB Rentals, a global leader in offshore A60 accommodation, is marking its continuing commitment to the Middle East by exhibiting a selection of its latest innovative units at this year’s ADIPEC
With an 18-month-old base in Dubai, HB Rentals has been a regular participant at ADIPEC and in 2012 the company has once again taken a significant display area at the show.
HB Rentals will be showcasing its A60 accommodation units and ATEX zone 1 cabins – giving visitors the chance to step inside the containers and see first-hand how they are used.
Visitors to the HB Rentals stand can also talk to a representative about their needs and the solutions offered by the company. HB Rentals uses A60 pressurised safe area classified accommodation units for offshore accommodation, including zone 1 and zone 2 pressurised cabins. All units go through rigorous international safety regulations meaning that they can be used almost anywhere in the world.
The company specialises in the supply of offshore living quarters, permanent additional accommodation as well as galley, mess rooms, laundries, offices, laboratories, recreation rooms, locker rooms, toilets, washrooms, laboratories offices, logging and control rooms. Customisations can include stairways, walkways, sewage systems, fresh water systems, power generators and water pumps – offering clients exactly what they need without a ‘one solution fits all’ approach.
HB Rentals will also, for example, liaise with temporary power suppliers to make the process even easier for the client. 2012 has proved a fruitful year in the Middle East for HB Rentals, with a flurry of significant account wins including McDermott International, Abu Dhabi-based National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), a liftboat provider, Hercules Offshore, Al Jaber, GMS and Earth.
Michael Bradley, director of sales and business development at HB Rentals, said, “ADIPEC gives us the perfect chance to show potential customers why we differ from our competitors. As a turnkey service provider we have international bases and manufacturing capabilities.
“We also offer for rental water making plants, sewage systems, pumps, tanks, stairways and walkways, lighting towers, power distribution panels, power generators.
We offer our clients the option to hand over the complete project to HB Rentals from survey and design through to manufacture/rental installation hook-up and commissioning.
“We’re not looking for quick-win contracts and that’s so important in this region. We know that business is about developing long-term relationships and showing that we’re flexible, innovative, proactive and customer-orientated.
“2012 is proving to be a great year for us. Since the expansion into the Middle East we have quadrupled the size of our fleet and we expect further growth by the end of the year. This year we are looking for a new operations base – one we can call our own – and we plan to move in by Q1 2013,” he commented.
HB Rentals will appear at ADIPEC on stand G520 in the Offshore & Marine hall.
