HB Rentals, a Superior Energy Services company specializing in onsite accommodation services, has announced the official opening of its new service location in Ciudad del Carmen, Mexico.
The new location supports HB’s full range of service offerings that include accommodation modules and operating essentials such as water, sewage, power, lighting and communications systems. The addition of this facility allows the company to respond more quickly to the needs of its Mexico-based clients while reducing project expenses by eliminating importation and transportation costs.
A key client, Paragon Offshore, which historically works with HB out of Houston, will now receive local support and enhanced service at its Ciudad del Carmen operations.
HB Rentals has been active in Mexico’s offshore rentals market for 15 years and has accommodated 1,000 personnel on board (POB) at various times, displaying its ability to support market needs. Its accommodation fleet in Mexico provides beds, galleys, diners, laundries, offices, recreation rooms and offshore service modules to various offshore projects.
“The offshore Mexico market represents a significant growth opportunity for HB Rentals as activity is expected to increase due to recent legislation,” said Deidre Toups, president, HB Rentals. “HB has a ground floor position for this expansion with its strong client base of construction, drilling and vessel companies.
“By offering more rapid response rates for module delivery and onsite services, our Mexico-based customers will be less affected by non-productive downtime in their remote operating locations,” said Toups. “HB Rentals is committed to providing the highest standards of quality and service to the energy industry, and the addition of the Ciudad del Carmen facility is no exception.”
