The Vancouver, BC, Canada based Bridgemans Services Group (Bridgemans) announce that it now has taken delivery of the MV Isabelle, a 35,000-gross-tonne vessel, and is now in Estonia beginning an extensive retrofit of its environmental systems to eliminate waste and recycle as much as possible, living, dining, recreation, and gathering areas to create a comfortable live-work home for large workforces.

Bridgemans states that the retrofitted MV Isabelle when finished in late 2023, will offer a luxurious home away from home that includes 650 newly renovated single cabins with private ensuites, a high-end dining room, lounges, meeting rooms, fast wi-fi, offices, first aid clinic, a state-of-the-art 8,000-square-foot fitness facility, billiards and games room, and dedicated accommodations for crew members.

The company mentions that MV Isabelle joins a long list of floatels that Bridgemans has retrofitted, deployed and operated around the world to serve major industrial and resource projects. These floatels are largely self-contained and fully equipped for safe, secure, and comfortable long-term accommodation. They include a 1,000 passenger floatel in service in the Philippines along with floatels that supported projects in Australia, Mozambique, Canada, Northern Europe and the Caribbean.

Brian Grange, president of Bridgemans says that “A Bridgemans floatel is a turn-key experience suited for large industrial projects anywhere in the world that require environmentally sustainable, safe and secure live-work offshore accommodation for their valued workforces,”  and “As with our other floatels, the MV Isabelle offers project owners an all-inclusive option tailored to support a healthy and productive workforce. This includes premium culinary, accommodation and entertainment experiences with onboard safety and security, support vessels, and an experienced and friendly crew.”
