Texo Accommodation – the contractor of choice for in-service upgrades
Texo Accommodation has a team dedicated to the delivery of offshore architectural fit-out projects. Our differentiation rests in our ability to deliver these projects whilst the assets are live and in-service – ensuring no disruption to client’s operations.

RG5 Galley Upgrade
Working in partnership with Entier Technical Services, we were commissioned to replace the bain marie within the galley of the Valaris RGV Jack-Up.
The existing bain marie was nearing the end of its useable lifespan and needed to be replaced.
Our project engineer carried out an offshore survey of the existing unit and surrounding area. A post survey report was prepared with recommendations and budget proposal presented.
Upon presentation of a recommended solution that met new standards and the provision of installation drawings, we were commissioned to source, supply and fit the new unit.
Our project team carried out the schedule of works including the isolation of services (in conjunction with Rig Electrician) to the existing bain marie ready for removal.
The new bain marie, complete with induction hob was installed, tested and made live ready for operation. In addition, we also sourced and installed 6 new ceiling mounted retractable heat lights.
From project brief to installation, this project was completed in 6 weeks (5 days for offshore install) all while the asset was fully operational and working in the North Sea.
RG7 Wet Units
Valaris commissioned Texo Accommodation to replace a number of existing cabin wet units within the accommodation block of their RGVII Jack-Up.
The existing units were nearing the end of their useable lifespan and required to be replaced completely.
Our project engineer carried out an offshore survey of the existing wet units to establish condition. A post survey report was prepared with recommendations and budget proposal presented.
Our three-man multi-discipline project team set about carrying out the schedule of works including the isolation of services (in conjunction with Rig Electrician) to the wet units ready for removal.
The new wet units were then installed, including new flooring, walls, sanitary-ware, external paneling and B15 doors.
This project is currently ongoing and being carried out in a staged schedule whilst the asset is fully operational and working in the North Sea.
Kenny Greig, Project Engineer, Texo Accommodation said: “I am delighted with the way in which these projects have been carried out. Our multi-discipline project team is working in tandem with our client’s operations to ensure minimal interruption. Again, another fantastic example of our in-service asset upgrade capabilities.”
