With sufficient free deck space and multiple cranes, the units are capable of operating year-round in water depths of up to 45m.
Temporary living quarters
On behalf of owners, Workfox also offers a flexible rental package for temporary accommodation units / living quarters (TLQs) for offshore locations and onboard ships. These TLQs are Lloyd’s certified and comply with all relevant governmental and class specifications.
