Offshore and maritime solutions

Transport. Research. Monitor. Work. Offshore containers are specially designed for use at sea. They are deployed on artificial islands or platforms and are therefore subject to special regulations and legal requirements. Our upper deck containers are maritime solutions for civil and military requirements for use on ship decks. In order to increase the limited amount of space available on ships, we develop and build upper deck containers for use as mobile operations centres, additional accommodation or as laboratory units.

Upper deck double-containers

This upper deck container system is used for monitoring shipping traffic at sea and in ports. To protect the sensitive electronics in the two containers, a portion of the floor is equipped with shock absorbers. Power is supplied by a transformer that is integrated in the floor. The system has a usable area of approximately 30 square meters and is completely watertight.

Removable floor panels (system flooring) make laying cables easy. The special exterior paintwork consists of four layers of two-component paint that is suitable for use at sea. The system was tested and certified by Germanischer Lloyd.

Ship laboratory container

This 20' upper deck container is used on research vessels in the North Sea and Baltic Sea as a laboratory for monitoring marine contamination with organic pollutants. The container has a utility room and a laboratory room. The utility room has a powerful air conditioner, which is especially suitable for operation at sea, as well as an adequate ventilation system.

The laboratory is equipped with special laboratory furniture, a washbasin and an explosion-proof refrigerator for storing laboratory materials.
In the wall area, there are two transfer stations for oxygen and nitrogen. In addition, the container is equipped with two portholes and a ship door. Fresh water and sea water lines can also be connected.

Upper deck container complex

This container complex was made for an installation vessel for offshore wind turbines. The container system consists of an office, a social room, a workshop, several storage containers and a dressing room. One of the storage containers is equipped with a unique sliding roof that can be opened from the inside.

This allows heavy components to be lifted out of and into the container using a crane. Work can begin in these rooms as soon as the installation vessel has planted its steel feet into the seabed and the jack-up platform has been lifted above sea level.

CHS mO³ve-tainer

The versatile CHS mO³ve-tainer (maritime On deck, Offshore, Overseas variable equipped container) was first presented in 2012. It can be used as an upper deck container, an offshore container or a sea freight container. The 20' High-Cube container shown here has a CSC and offshore approval by Det Norske Veritas (DNV).

Offshore containers are always equipped with lifting gear on the container roof, which distinguishes them from all other types of containers. Approval in accordance with DNV 2.7-1 and DNV 2.7-2 is possible.

In order to receive offshore approval from DNV, a container has to successfully pass various rigorous tests, such as a lift and drop test. These tests were performed in the presence of Germanischer Lloyd. A container can only receive an offshore approval and be handled safely at sea if it passes the tests without deformation.
