Bibby Progress has arrived in Geoje Shipyard
Bibby Maritime are delighted to announce that the accommodation barge, Bibby Progress, has arrived in South Korea to accommodate workers at Samsung Heavy Industries in their shipyard located on Geoje Island. The project is associated with an FLNG project destined for Australian waters.
Progress has proved her flexibility in places such as Norway, Papua New Guinea and Nigeria in the last 10 years and everyone involved in the charter is looking forward to the barge accepting guests in South-Korea.
The vessel currently has 155 en-suite rooms and facilities on board including a large bar, kitchen and restaurant, gym and a relaxing roof terrace which make Bibby Progress a home from home for workers. However, Samsung have chosen to configure her for a larger capacity.
“Samsung Heavy Industries are a world-renowned name in the shipbuilding industry and we are very proud to be working with them on this project. Bibby Progress has impressed past clients all over the world such as Energy Majors and Governments with its quality facilities and we are determined to add Samsung’s name and their client to this category upon completion of the charter” said Howard Hughes, Technical Director at Bibby Maritime.
Bibby Progress will remain in South Korea until late this year with options up until early 2017 available to SHI.
