Floatel International, an offshore accommodation services provider, said Friday it had secured a contract with Woodside for the Floatel Triumph semi-submersible accommodation unit.
The Floatel Triumph will provide support to Woodside’s Pluto project in Western Australia. The three-month contract is expected to start around April 1, 2023.
Woodside will have options to extend the contract further. Floatel International did not share details on the contract value.
The Floatel Triumph can accommodate 500 people in one and two-bed cabins and has large recreational areas, including mess and day rooms, a gym, an internet café, and a movie theater. Workers can transfer between the floatel and the host installation using the unit’s telescoping gangway.
Pluto LNG is a Western Australian LNG plant that consists of an offshore platform and one onshore LNG processing train, fed by gas from the offshore gas fields in W. Australia.
