Accommodation Barges


Chevalier Floatels owns and operates accommodation barges Kalmar, Sans Vitesse, and Rossini, with respectively 220, 101, and 110 comfortable cabins, together with recreational spaces and offices. These units are to be operated in sheltered waters, ideally moored alongside berth or quay.

These accommodation barges are shallow daft and can be used to accommodate personnel on projects in more remote area’s or where existing shore accommodation is not economically available. Our barges are basically fitted out with single cabins but capacity can be upgraded to double occupancy.

Our floatels provide a comfortable base for the workforce close to the construction site with minimal environmental impact and limited infrastructure requirements.

Keeping within budget is essential in large scale projects and the location of the floatels close to the worksite, implicates less travel time and increase of productive hours.

Good workforce and technicians are hard to find and comfortable accommodation with adequate recreational facilities is paramount. On most barges, all cabins have internet and television. Restaurant with quality catering, bar, recreation rooms, a gym and laundry facilities are available to our guests. Office facilities complete the facilities to our clients.

In Chevalier Floatels we believe that floatels
are much more than just accommodation.

The floatels can potentially be used for accommodation at:

  • Oil, gas and LNG land construction sites

  • EPC projects with changing accommodation requirements

  • Shipyard conversion projects

  • Staff accommodation housing

  • Event hotel facilities

  • Refugee accommodation

  • Detention facilities
