ALMACO delivers cabin adaptation project for Safe Zephyrus

Posted on May 29, 2023

In February 2023, ALMACO delivered 40 transformed 3-person standard cabins to Prosafe Rigs, Safe Zephyrus. The successful project took place during sailing between the UK, Las Palmas and Brazil.

In the end of December 2022, ALMACO’s adaptation team boarded Prosafe’s accommodation vessel Safe Zephyrus to reconstruct and transform 80 single Norsok cabins into 40 standard 3-person cabins compliant with Brazilian rules. The demolition of the existing cabins took place from December 28th to January 18th, 2023, during sailing from Aberdeen, UK to Las Palmas. The reconstruction work started in Las Palmas from January 19th to February 15th and continued during crossing to Brazil from mid-February to March 15, 2023.

Jean-Pierre Lepage, Vice President of Modernizations at ALMACO, says; “This project went just about as smoothly as a project can go. The co-operation with the owner was excellent, which resulted in a successful delivery of all the cabin areas. We have worked on projects with Prosafe before and consider the company very professional and goal oriented. This makes working together very efficient.”

Safe Zephyrus, a highly advanced and efficient DP3 semi-submersible ASV, can now accommodate 490 persons. It is designed for worldwide operations in the harshest offshore environments.
