Should you buy or rent offshore Reefers?
You should seriously consider renting an offshore shipping container if you operate in the offshore renewable energy, catering, or oil and gas industries.
Offshore shipping containers can withstand the harsh weather conditions encountered during open sea transit and deployment in hostile settings like oil rigs and offshore wind farms.
The manufacturing process is responsible for most of its tenacity.
These units are made of robust materials like Corten steel or wrought alloy aluminium and are designed to endure a very low minimum temperature, making them both corrosion resistant and durable.
This, along with stringent testing and stringent criteria, makes them the logical choice for anyone wishing to move freight securely over great distances.
Because of their robustness and stability, offshore containers may also be utilised as on-site storage and as additional space for staff.
Refrigerated DNV containers are also ideal for carrying and storing chilled or frozen food to offshore locations.
DNV offshore containers have grown more popular in a variety of sectors as a result of these evident advantages.
If you’re thinking of hiring your own, there are a few things to think about before signing the lease.
What is the cost of hiring an offshore DNV container?
Renting a DNV container is frequently less expensive than buying one altogether.
This is especially true if your needs are only temporary.
The total cost, as well as the number of containers and the unit type, are all affected by how long you want to rent a shipping container.
A single 20ft DNV Reefer Container may cost tens of thousands of pounds, not to include the cost of depot storage while it’s not in use.
Renting becomes a far more realistic option as a result.
What dimensions do DNV containers come in?
An offshore shipping container’s normal dimensions are generally 10 or 20 feet.
What certifications do DNV containers need?
DNV containers are significantly more complicated than ISO containers due to their applications.
To begin, DNV containers must be certified for usage offshore.
Containers must go through a standardised design review, inspection, and testing process in order for this to happen.
These inspections will follow the DNV 2.7-1 standard.
These rules are in place to protect the people who work around these containers.
As a result, they are required for any DNV container. Every year, all DNV containers must be recertified.
Can I make changes to the DNV container I rented?
DNV containers may be tailored to practically any requirement.
DNV shipping containers have a wide range of applications.
Lighting, power outlets geared to any voltage specification and shelving units may all be added to your DNV container if needed.
As a result, they’re ideal for workplaces and even workshops, as the units may be configured in any way.
Desks, workbenches, floors, and insulation may all be fitted, enabling you to maximise the space within the container while also incorporating all necessary technologies.
In conclusion, we have discussed what is the cost of hiring an offshore DNV as well as what dimensions do DNV containers come in.
We also discussed what certifications do DNV containers need and whether you are able to make changes to the DNV you rented.
