Our Floating Accommodation Barge, Bibby Stockholm, arrived in Bornholm last week – a Danish island in the Baltic Sea. Bibby Stockholm had been in Shetland since April 2013 accommodating construction workers involved in the Shetland Gas Plant build located at Sullom Voe.
The move comes after Bibby Maritime secured a short-term contract to accommodate Danish police involved in protecting the annual political conference hosted on the island. We expect Bibby Stockholm to return to the North Sea in mid-July of this year and will be immediately available for her next project.
Carl McLaughlin, Commercial Director at Bibby Maritime had some positive comments following the signing of the contract, “Bibby Stockholm had been up in Shetland for some time and became very familiar and well received by the locals for the unique solution it was offering. We’re glad to have signed this contract with a new client, our first in Denmark which has now seen us offering our unique accommodation solution across all of the Scandinavian countries”.
