ENERPRO was contracted by offshore accommodation vessel specialist, Prosafe, to fully manage and execute the Safe Zephyrus’ 5 yearly SPS (special periodic survey). A contract award in Brazil, required its reclassification by DNV along with regular maintenance upgrades and client requested modifications. The asset sailed from Aberdeen to Las Palmas where the bulk of the project was completed with the remaining construction phase completed on tow to Brazil, and at its destination.

The scope of work included:

  • Structural steelwork designs for fabrication and installation of container landing platforms
  • Accommodation external window repairs
  • CCTV upgrades
  • Gangway upgrades
  • Macerator upgrades
  • Warehouse upgrade
  • Full accommodation upgrade
  • SPS including UWILD to DNV standard

An unusually tight time-frame was given for all planning, management and completion, before mobilisation.
