Mobilization of newbuilds in shipyards

Sodexo has mobilized over 65 newly built rigs in the past 3 years, with dedicated teams located in Korean, Chinese, and Singaporean shipyards.

Mobilization of newbuilds in shipyards

We offer a complete range of services to mobilize your units in construction, modification or inspection in the shortest timeframe. These services apply to all types of offshore installations: rigs, jack-ups, drillships, semi-submersible, vessels, accommodation barges, etc.

Sodexo, leader in mobilization services in shipyards

We make sure your unit is well equipped to accommodate your crew before its journey to the location of operation. On top of catering, that includes sanitization, procurement of dry goods and drinks and of all items for the living quarters, accommodation preparation and equipment check.

To ensure time efficiency, we provide detailed mobilization planning with key milestones (site audit, premobilization…) and regular reporting. Our crew undergo continuous safety trainings before and during mobilization.

From the yard to the country of operation

We offer your crew a smooth journey at every stage and stop (crew change, fresh food supply…) from the shipyard to the country of destination. 

Our global footprint ensures consistency in service delivery for your global fleet. 

If you choose to dry tow or heavy lift the rig to location, our mobilization solution can bring significant cost and time savings upon arrival at location.
