An offshore accommodation module is an accommodation facility that utilizes shipping containers as a basic structure. These accommodation modules are often used in places far from cities and infrastructure, such as remote oil rigs, mining camps, offshore wind farms, and more.
Offshore container accommodation modules usually consist of multiple containers that have been specially designed and modified to meet the needs of the accommodation. For example, toilets, showers, kitchens, bedrooms and other facilities can be installed inside the container, as well as infrastructure such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning. At the same time, special facilities such as windproof, waterproof, and explosion-proof can also be installed on the outside of the container to meet the needs of use in harsh environments.
The offshore container accommodation module has the following advantages:
Flexibility: Offshore container accommodation modules can be flexibly combined and disassembled, and can be customized according to different needs, so as to meet various housing needs. This flexibility makes offshore container accommodation modules ideal for remote workforce housing and temporary housing.
Durability: The shell of the offshore container accommodation module is usually made of high-strength steel, which has high durability and wind and shock resistance. This structure can ensure that the accommodation modules can still operate safely in harsh environments, thereby ensuring the safety of workers.
Fast Construction: Offshore container accommodation modules can be built faster than traditional construction methods because of their relatively short manufacturing and shipping times. This rapid build can help businesses accommodate workers more quickly, increasing work efficiency and productivity.
Mobility: Since the offshore container accommodation modules can be easily disassembled and combined, they can be easily moved to different workplaces. This mobility can allow enterprises to more flexibly adjust and optimize their resource allocation, thereby achieving higher efficiency and productivity.
Cost-effective: Offshore container accommodation modules are usually more economical than traditional construction methods. This is because they are relatively inexpensive to manufacture and ship, as are their maintenance and management costs. This cost-effectiveness makes offshore container accommodation modules ideal for remote workforce housing and temporary housing.
Environmentally friendly and sustainable: Offshore container accommodation modules are usually transformed and assembled with recycled containers, which avoids the large amount of material and energy consumption required by traditional buildings and reduces the impact on the environment. At the same time, the offshore container accommodation module can achieve energy saving and environmental protection, such as the use of solar panels, ground source heat pumps and other technologies to reduce energy consumption.

About offshore positive pressure container used in Zone1/Zone2
Positive pressurized containers can provide a safe environment for equipment and people in hazardous areas. The principle of a positive pressure blast-proof container is to achieve the technical requirements of blast-proofing through enclosure. A positive pressure ventilation system is the key.
It delivers fresh air from a safe area to the container through ducts that pure the air inside the container and maintain a slightly higher air pressure inside the container than outside. In this condition, no harmful and flammable gas can enter the enclosure.If the blast control system detects the presence of hazardous gases in the enclosure or fails to maintain positive pressure, the alarm system will sound an alarm and issue a warning. If the control conditions inside the container are still not required within the specified time, the non-explosive device will automatically cut off. Thus, the common equipment in the container fulfils the purpose of blast protection.
About the air lock room of the positive pressure container
The positive pressure container provided by TLS arrange two doors between the safe zone inside the container and the hazardous zone outside the container, and the isolation space formed between the two doors is the air-lock compartment. The purpose of setting the air-lock compartment is to control the airflow when people or materials enter and exit. The two doors of the air-lock compartment are usually interlocked, with one door open and the other closed. When entering the offshore container, the operator enters the air-lock compartment through the enclosed outer door and then opens the inner door after closing the enclosed outer door. In this way, no harmful gases from the outside can enter the main compartment, and the pressure of the air in the main compartment does not fall too fast.
About CPFG（combined pressurization fire&gas system) of positive pressure container
CPFG is a complete suite of intelligent booster control systems, typically used in positive pressure containers, with gas detectors, smoke detectors, heat detectors, fire alarms, pressure switches, flow switches, booster fans, emergency stop & alarm mute switches, and other explosion protection equipment.
The CPFG is also connected to a power distribution board, which will be connected by non-explosive devices inside the container, such as sockets, fume hoods, computers, water heaters, etc.
When the power is turned on, the CPFG turns on the booster fan to purge the inside of the container to positive pressure. This prevents dangerous gases entering from outside. When the environment inside is safe, the DB (distribution board) will start up and the internal non-explosive electrical equipment can be used normally. The DB cannot be started if the environment inside the container is not secure.
During operation, if dangerous gases are detected in the container or the positive pressure cannot be maintained, the alarm system will sound an alarm and issue a warning. If the control conditions in the container are not met within the specified time, the non-explosive device is automatically turned off. Therefore, the general equipment in the container is suitable for blast protection purposes.

A60 Rock Wool is a high-performance insulation material made from mineral fibers derived from basalt rocks. The term "A60" refers to its fire resistance rating, meaning that it can withstand fire for up to 60 minutes before its structural integrity is compromised. Rock wool is known for its excellent thermal, acoustic, and fire-resistant properties. A60 Rock Wool is indeed an excellent choice for insulation in offshore functional containers due to its unique combination of properties. Offshore containers are exposed to harsh environmental conditions, including high humidity, saltwater, and extreme temperature fluctuations. In these environments, insulation materials must provide reliable performance and meet strict safety standards. A60 Rock Wool fits these requirements well.Here's why A60 Rock Wool is suitable for offshore functional containers:

Offshore containers are built to suit specific equipment and are often designed to withstand high dynamic loading.
2. Ability to withstand adverse weather conditions
Offshore reefer containers are more exposed to open seas and are often left on ship decks or on loading platforms in adverse weather conditions.
Therefore, they require a minimum design temperature of -20°C. This also means that the material they are made of must be strong enough to withstand this temperature.
On the other hand, ISO sea containers (also called shipping containers) are made of corrosion-resistant steel.
3. Microprocessor control
DNV 2.7-1 offshore reefer containers have microprocessor control of the fresh air exchange rate, a feature that traditional ISO containers do not have. This means that the air exchange rate can be modified according to the goods being transported and other requirements.
4. Ventilation on demand
This is a unique feature offered by DNV's offshore refrigerated containers, which makes them a clear winner compared to traditional ISO containers.
Ventilation on demand offers maximum protection for perishable goods/cargo. The system works by providing full, automated ventilation in response to changes in respiratory gas levels.
In conclusion, DNV offshore refrigerated containers are built to withstand the harsh environments and conditions prevalent in the shipping industry, making them the best choice for the oil and gas industry.
