Cabin Layout on offshore facilities

Asked by Normandy 7 years, 6 months ago | 1 Answers

Can anyone suggest a layout for the cabin in the offshore facilities? Since space is premium on the facilities in the ocean, the more compact the better but still provide convenience for the people on board.

I do not have the layout to suggest but you can contact one of the accommodation manufacturers and they can provide some sketches or their recommended layouts.

However, consider the followings when design/select the cabin layout for offshore facilities. The manning distribution dictates risk outcomes.

  • Consider number of beds required for the initial commissioning, testing & start-up phase.
  • Persons on Board (POB): lifeboats, accommodation arrangements & overall risk level.
  • Human factors – efficient or overworked?
  • Minimum safe manning for ship operation (regulator approval).
