New Deals Boost Duffy and McGovern in SE Asia, Australia

Duffy and McGovern has secured three new deals in Australia and China, boosting its order book in Southeast Asia and Australasia by more than £100,000 (US$197,000).

Duffy and McGovern Accommodation Services' extensive fleet of unique 20' x 8' units are in high demand, with Sperry Drilling Services and Schlumberger taking the modules on ongoing rental deals ranging from three to 18 months.

Sperry's modules will be used by staff from the Peak Group, AED and Apache Energy on the Wilcraft in the Perth Basin and Stena Clyde in the North West Shelf and Timor Sea, respectively, during drilling operations.

Fitted out with logging facilities including computer rack space, the laboratory units are DNV-approved and have been customized to meet Sperry's specific requirements with shelving, wall cupboards, whiteboards and specialized Barrier Box mountings.

Schlumberger is also utilizing high-specification 20' x 8' DNV-approved, A60 fire-rated zone 1 engineering modules, fitted as offices and laboratory space, used to support operations in the North West Shelf, Western Australia. The firm has been working with DMAS in Australia since 2005.

Weatherford has also taken a 16' x 8' engineering unit from DMAS' southeast Asia base in Singapore, for use in its operations offshore China over six months. "We are continuing to expand our already well-established module bases in Singapore and Western Australia, and are turning our attention to China with new-build fleet for the growing rental market," said Godwin. "The popularity of our highly modifiable 20' x 8' solutions continues to increase and I am delighted to be continuing what are long-standing business relationships with major players in the industry such as Schlumberger and Weatherford."

DMAS was acquired by US company Superior Energy Services in January 2007, for its existing accommodation subsidiary HB Rentals, headquartered in Broussard, La.
