Recently ELA Container Offshore GmbH delivered a 20 ft Offshore Drying Container to Fred. Olsen Windcarrier.
The container has been installed on board of the jack-up installation vessel Brave Tern to dry suits, boots and gloves of the staff on board. “We decided to use an ELA Offshore Drying Container to get the clothes dry as fast as possible. Based on our previous experience we were confident that ELA would be a reliable partner and would deliver on time,” says Michael Koed Aasted, Procurement and Logistics Manager at Fred. Olsen Windcarrier.
The 20 ft ELA Offshore Drying Container is available for rent and sale. It is equipped with a Pronomar Drying System which is suitable to dry suits, boots and gloves for up to 20 people. All drying systems are made from solid stainless steel and therefore built to last. The drying systems dry the clothes from the inside out by means of a large amount of warm air entering from a powerful blower. “The drying systems prolong the lifetime of the costly work outfits. From a health point of view, the amount of sick leave decreases as workers are more likely to get sick when working in wet or damp working suits,” says Katharina Pleus, Marketing and Project Manager at ELA Container Offshore GmbH. “Mr. Aasted already visited and inspected our Drying Container at a trade fair in Copenhagen and was highly impressed by the high quality of our products.”
The Drying Container was delivered by ELA’s own truck to Bremerhaven and will be in use on the Brave Tern for at least two months. Currently, the Brave Tern is active on a project in the German Bight. “The communication within the process from offer to order has been very efficient. Delivery took place to our utmost satisfaction,” reviews Michael Koed Aasted.
