Kvaerner Stord extends Bibby Bergen coastel charter

Bibby Maritime has secured a four-month extension to Bibby Bergen’s charter with Kvaerner Stord yard on the West Coast of Norway.

The extension doubles the original four-month charter for the coastel which began on 30th April 2014, meaning the charter will now run until 31st December 2014.

The charter reinforces a continuing relationship with the yard, which has previously seen Bibby Maritime’s accommodation vessel ‘Bibby Challenge’ chartered on a twelve month contract back in 2007.

A coastel is a floating accommodation vessel suitable for mooring alongside a berth or quay. It can be used to accommodate workers on projects taking place in remote locations or where existing accommodation is expensive or difficult to find.

Having completed an interior refurbishment in 2012, Bibby Bergen offers 180 en suite bedrooms alongside a kitchen and restaurant, lounges, games rooms and laundry facilities. The vessel’s exterior is similar to a wooden ‘land camp’ design, which is commonly seen across shipyards in Scandinavia.

“Bibby Bergen has always worked really well for our Scandinavian customers, and it’s great to know that our accommodation will continue to provide a helpful solution for Kvaerner Stord until the end of the year” said Carl McLaughlin, Commercial Manager at Bibby Maritime Limited.

Bibby Maritime own and operate a fleet of accommodation vessels which currently work in Australia, Papua New Guinea, the Shetland Islands, and Norway, with current clients including BP, KJV Gorgon, and Petrofac.
