Housing Workers for an Offshore Windfarm

Installing offshore wind turbines is already a logistical nightmare to look here when will viagra be available as a generic get all the components delivered to the buy levitra professional proper site. But the biggest issue may be getting the workers to the worksite. For the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm off the east coast of cheap pills cialis England north of Norfolk, the workers are being housed on-site in a 137-room ferry during their 2-week on/2-week off rotations.

A former cruise ferry, the Regina Baltica, has now been repurposed to serve as a floating hotel for wind farm construction workers. Keeping the workers close at hand makes it possible to work in smaller windows of favorable weather, and reduces the amount of travel and transportation needed for them. It also reduces the stress on local towns which may not have the capacity to support 100+ workers at a time. The ship's accommodations include "amenities such as a coffee shop, restaurant, swimming pool, conference and meeting rooms, lounge areas and a sun deck."

We also call it floating hotel.

and will definitely keep the workers happy!
When I was working on the tibetan plateau I just could dream of stuff like this! A swimming pool? We don't even had a toilet!
At the same time it keeps the pollution of everyday transfers low, so it serves a green purpose too. Please more of that!
I bet the workers love it

I can almost guarantee that all the workers are having a blast on that ship. enjoying a relatively uncrowded ship where they can drink and party on the boat sounds fun for them
