Offshore Container


What are offshore containers?

Offshore containers are specialised containers designed to meet the specific requirements of the offshore oil and gas industry and other marine applications. These containers are used for the transportation, storage, and handling of goods and equipment in offshore environments, which typically include offshore drilling rigs, production platforms, and support vessels. They are available in 10ft and 20ft for hire or sale.  

Our offshore shipping containers also called “DVN containers” are designed to withstand the harsh and demanding conditions of offshore operations. These containers are built to be durable and robust. These types of shipping containers are different from the standard ISO containers because they are considered to be stronger and safer, designed specifically to be stacked on deck and resistant to corrosion.

Featuring internal tie down points, offshore containers ensure that cargo can be securely loaded, and will remain safe during transit. Willbox currently supply offshore dry containers, which are rigorously tested, and regularly surveyed to ensure that they up to date with the current DNV 2.7-1 requirements.
