We spend the majority of our time indoors. So the environment we’re surrounded by is a key element of our wellbeing and ability to function effectively. And this applies to machines as much as it does to people. KAEFER is specialised in the interior outfitting of the widest variety of facilities and buildings – from offshore oil platforms and naval ships to cruise liners.
Interior Outfitting in the Process, Marine & Defence Industries
Regardless of whether it’s refitting a naval vessel in record time or ensuring that the hard working crew on a remote oilrig can get their hot meals, KAEFER has the team to make the seemingly impossible possible.
KAEFER is regularly called upon to work on large cruise ships, but the Queen Mary 2 was an exceptional challenge. 35 passenger cabins, a pantry, technical rooms and an entire staircase needed to be fitted in a very short time.
The work involved removing teak decking and existing outdoor areas with heavy machinery and installing KAEFER insulated steel sections on the decks. It was a day and night job to get it done in time, but in just 21 full working days, the Queen Mary 2 was ready to set sail again.
With the Troll B platform in Norway, the challenge was to upgrade the heart of the oil platform: the galley. The entire kitchen needed to be brought up to date, without disrupting daily operations. So that the crew could eat. In addition to having to brave the wind, weather and very limited space onboard, the KAEFER team had to adhere to strict NORSOK regulations. Yet the project was completed in just five months to the satisfaction of the client and constantly hungry crew.
Completing these kinds of jobs in such a short timeframe requires highly qualified, flexible and motivated teams. People who think in terms of solutions rather than in terms of problems. People that work at KAEFER.
