ELA Container Offshore to equip M/V ‘Meri’ with mobile accommodation

ELA Container Offshore GmbH recently supplied two Offshore Living Quarters and two Offshore Wastewater Tanks to Meriaura Group based in Turku, Finland. The units were installed on board their open deck cargo carrier ‘Meri’. Together with their vessel ‘Aura’, ‘Meri’ will be performing marine research for the Finnish Environment Institute SYKE and the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute SMHI.

Haren, 25th September 2017 – "The contract consists of several expeditions, which requires efficient mobilization and demobilization of the research equipment on board. The two vessels included in the contract provide flexibility and reliability to the client, as the time frame for the measurement periods are tight”, explains Lassi Eloranta, Marine Superintendent at Meriaura Group. Both vessels are ice classed, enabling research also during the winter time. “We require additional accommodation capacity on board the vessel ‘Meri’ during the research expeditions, and therefore we installed ELA’s mobile accommodation units on board our vessel”, Eloranta continues.

“The Offshore Living Quarters and Wastewater Tanks that we supplied are ‘made in Germany’ and possess the DNV 2.7-1 certification for offshore use. Since we always keep a stock of offshore units at our premises we were able to supply the containers and tanks at short notice”, Niels Albers, Business Development Northern Europe at ELA Container Offshore GmbH, summarizes.
