Offshore mobilization during COVID-19 brings additional challenges to contractors. Conbit, part of Mammoet, had to be creative to solve this challenge. Conbit is currently mobilising more than 80 technicians from all over Europe to Esbjerg, Denmark. The first challenge is to get the professionals to the local heliport. Most borders are closed and flights are very limited. Some can travel by car or public transport. For others, alternatives needed to be found. Conbit arranged mobilisation with a private charter (Fairchild Metro 23) of 10 highly skilled technicians. The second challenge is on safeguarding the health and safety of the crew during the offshore rotation. For this project, Conbit and its client decided to put all crew members into quarantine for two weeks before they would travel offshore.
