Getting off one rig and going straight out to another, wasn’t to bad, travelling all day, including two flights and a two hour train journey, wasn’t to bad, the taxi driver dropping us off at the gate and a half mile walk with bags to the rig, wasn’t to bad. Arriving as the base of the rig and seeing 157 steps to climb, with bags, in the dark, that was bad, I hate steps.

It didn’t look that bad from back here.

Looking from here I was hoping they would send the crane down, at least for our bags.

We managed the steps and after a safety brief made our way to our cabins, this rig is a Flotel, accommodation only, so it’s quiet and clean, even outside. At full capacity it can sleep around 350 people, but as we are moving it to a new location after a re-fit in Copenhagen there is only 52 of us onboard.

Here’s something I don’t get to see every day, a Maersk Supply boat having some work done in dry dock. Cool.

Have a great weekend.

Flotel   14 comments

Yes I’m still on this flotel, my colleague left this morning so it’s just me now, just here to monitor the anchor survey and re-lay any anchors if needed, so I’m now in the ‘Sleep until you’re hungry, eat until you’re tired’ mode.
Here is a few photo’s of the rig, all taken with my iPhone and processed with Snapseed.
This was my first view of the Flotel, I arrived just after midnight.

These are the steps I had to climb, carrying my kit, it wasn’t easy.

Once onboard I was met with a typical Norwegian rig, clean and very spacious.

After a good nights sleep I made my way to my fav place, the mess hall.

Stopped off at the shop for some supplies.

Then found this room, not sure what it is but it had a whole lot of equipment in it.

In the evening I relaxed in the cinema, it was nice and dark with comfortable seats, would of been great if they had put a movie on though.
