Case Study


BMV AS needed a swift and cost-effective accommodation solution, to help them accommdoate a number of workerd arriving from Eastern Europe to work on the building of a new geo-seismic survey vessel.

Your Questions Answered

What is a Coastel exactly?

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.

Where can a Coastel be berthed?

Coastels are not suitable for offshore work as they need to be berthed alongside the shore, ideally moored to a berth or quay. Our vessels have worked to support projects around the world, and we work with our customers to work out the best solution for mooring close to a project.

How much does it cost to hire a Coastel?

Coastels offer a cost-effective alternative to using local hotels or land-based temporary solutions. Costs vary for each project, depending on the vessel used and project location, but we try to offer flexible pricing to make it as easy as possible for our customers.
