For Statoil’s Valemon project, Mercon was awarded the construction of a new and massive Living Quarter. Accommodation specialist Hertel, contracted Mercon to build the steel construction for this eight storey high building which can harbour 40 offshore workers in single cabins.

Mercon will build the complete steel construction for the accommodation modules and will install the heli deck. The complete structure will weigh around 645 tonnes and is 35 metres high.

Hertel will carry out the outfitting of the bed cabins, kitchens, recreational area, medical centre and control room at Mercon’s yard in Gorinchem.
The Valemon project is a new development of Statoil on the Norwegian continental shelf. The production platform – which will be built by Samsung Heavy Industries – will separate gas, condensate and water and will have facilities for partial processing and export.

Hertel and Mercon joined forces before on offshore projects. For most projects up to now, Hertel worked as subcontractor for Mercon for the outfitting of living quarters. This time, it’s the other way round whereby Mercon works under the wings of Hertel.
