BROUSSARD, Louisiana -- HB Rentals has completed an accommodations solutions contract for BG Trinidad.

The contract covered demobilization, re-installation, and commissioning of a 25-building accommodations package with heliport from the Dolphin to the Poinsettia platforms. HB Rentals replaced the Dolphin platform’s original accommodations package with a newly constructed heliport with five accommodations modules.

HB Rentals provided the engineering, design, fabrication, and installation of the Civil Aviation Publication (CAP) 437-compliant heliport to accommodate a Sikorsky S-76 helicopter. The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS)-compliant accommodation modules were also designed, manufactured, and installed by HB Rentals and included sleeper units, gyms, galleys, diners, offices and laundry rooms, as well as support frames to facilitate up to a 9-ft (2.7-m) cantilever off the platform.

The company also provided all associated walkways and stairs, electrical power and distribution, a potable water maker, and a sewer treatment system.

BG Trinidad has extended the original 18-month contract for an additional 24 months with an expanded scope.
