Kabina presented and explained the ethos of the company, its commitment to higher standards of worker accommodation and services, and showed a new animatic film of KabinaOne, the first in a planned series of 100 m vessels to form the Kabina fleet.

KabinaOne's innovations include a central 'street' with an atrium to give every cabin external windows; a twin-docking station aft for tenders; and a VIP top deck with Helipad, superior single cabins, lounge and office.

“I lived for six months on the Kissima barge in Angola Block 3. I can see that Kabina is offering a wholly different experience. It is good to see the that there has been extensive brainstorming to develop the functionality for working at sea together with very pleasant accommodation that provides a better quality of life".

Neil Cheston, Sales Director, Kabina

"This was a great opportunity to launch our company, present our game-changing accommodation concepts and change the conversation on this subject. The industry has tended to go for the default, least-cost option but now people can see that carefully designed accommodation and services mean that workers are more engaged and productive and corporates will have a better reputation".

Per Jonsson, CEO, Kabina

“It was marvellous to be able to meet, and listen to, so many senior oil industry professionals. My takeout is that our 'whole of life' approach to accommodation has been validated by the oil industry, a key market for Kabina."
