VANCOUVER — Bridgemans Services Group has taken delivery of the MV Isabelle, a 35,000-gross-tonne vessel, and is now beginning a retrofit of its environmental systems and living, dining, recreation, and gathering areas to create a comfortable live-work home for large workforces.

When the retrofit in Estonia is finished in late 2023, the MV Isabelle will include 650 newly renovated single cabins with private ensuites, a dining room, lounges, meeting rooms, wi-fi, offices, first aid clinic, a 8,000-square-foot fitness facility, billiards and games room, and dedicated accommodations for crew members.

It will have an ultraviolet water purification system, the ability to run on shore hydro power, industrial-sized heat pumps, and sewage treatment that includes ultrafiltration and a low intensity UV unit for removing bacteria. Bridgemans is designing the MV Isabelle to eliminate waste and recycle as much as possible.

“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,” said Brian Grange, president of Bridgemans. “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.”
