HSR Completes Rig Upgrades for Global Marine

Wednesday, October 10, 2001
The Offshore Division of Houston Ship Repair, Inc. (HSR) has recently completed two major rig upgrades for Global Marine Drilling Company. HSR was selected as the primary contractor for the re-powering and mud system enhancement stages of the Glomar Baltic I upgrade project. The Marathon LeTourneau Super 300 jackup drilling rig was re-powered with five Caterpillar type 3516 TA V, 1,305 kW diesel generator sets, replacing the three existing EMD diesel engine driven 1,400 kW generators. HSR was also contracted to replace the two existing National 12-P-160 mud pumps with three National 14-P-220 mud pumps. HSR removed the existing generator and mud pump units, installed the new units and modified as necessary, the associated system piping and auxiliaries associated with the generators and mud pumps. HSR performed all the structural modifications necessary for the new installations. Additionally, the engineering for the structural modifications and the detail engineering for the piping systems were done by HSR. This project was carried out in Sabine Pass, Tx. (Rowan Facility)

HSR was also awarded the contract for the re-powering of the CFEM, type T-2000-C, jack-up rig Glomar Labrador I. The five existing Caterpillar D-399TA diesel generator sets were being replaced by five Caterpillar type 3516 TA V, 1,305 kW diesel generator sets. HSR also performed the modifications on the existing systems piping. This project was carried out in Port of Spain, Trinidad and was completed ahead of schedule. Both complex projects were awarded to HSR on the basis of their previous experience, quality work performance at a competitive price, and ability to complete such projects within the contracted time schedule.
