H2M was established due to the fact that there needed to be a radical change in the approach to the design of offshore accommodation modules if the term 'lightweight' was to be meaningful.
The weight of offshore platform topsides has an impact on the overall CAPEX & OPEX. In many cases today's topsides have reached their weight limitations. Accurate calculation and management of the topsides' weight is becoming a critical factor.
The 'lightweight' concept “kicked off” in 2010 with designing a stand-alone offshore accommodation module constructed out of aluminium and carrying a Lloyds A60 fire rating certificate which is a considerable challenge on itself. The success of this concept paved the way to establish a specialized company entering a niche market with a brand new product.
The company has been set up to fabricate, market and sell and lease lightweight accommodation modules satisfying the needs of the oil and gas, renewable energy and maritime industry.
