The SSP Hub
The SSP Hub design represents a truly revolutionary platform design in that its technical capabilities open up the potential for integrated delivery of logistic support services and offshore supply base services through a single platform. As such, the SSP Hub can be viewed as servicing two distinct offshore oil and gas service market segments that have historically been serviced independently.
The Hub hull uses the SSP Plus basic design with the addition of a crew boat docking tunnel, spacious accommodation and multiple helidecks.
The proprietary tunnel arrangement allows large, fast crew boats to safely dock inside the unit for safe and efficient personnel transfer. The purpose of the Hub is to provide a cost effective and efficient method of transporting large numbers of personnel offshore on a day-to-day basis. The Hub can also be used to store water, fuel, drilling fluids and other materials and assume the role of an offshore storage depot in support of drilling operations, pipe lay and floating production operations, emergency and spill containment.
