The new 6m containers offer a unique flexible system allowing for single or dual temperature zoned compartments. James Scullion, Business Development Executive said: “Our product range is constantly evolving in line with client needs and feedback, and our technical team works hard to integrate regional requirements into our products.
“Our twin-zoned containers are new to the market and are already proving extremely popular, both with new and existing customers. Exhibiting at AOG 2013 will provide a superb forum for us to introduce the new features to visitors.”
Since its launch in 2011 the Ferguson Group’s accommodation service vessel, ASV Pioneer, has been involved in an offshore cable laying project and is now deployed in the Mediterranean Sea on a contract with Titan-Micoperi in support of the Costa Concordia Salvage operation.
