Monday, July 11, 2011

Drydocks World, a ship and offshore repair, conversion and new building company, has announced the successful launch of Self Elevating Platform L210 from its rig building facility in Graha, Indonesia. The platform is being built at a contract value of $24.6 million.

“International demand for offshore drilling rigs and platforms for oil and gas industries and the civil construction market has remained buoyant. Over the past few years, we have managed to play a major part in filling the gap between demand and supply. Our well-equipped facility in Graha has produced some of the most versatile drilling rigs and barges in operation in recent years. We are happy that our clients have placed their trust in us and we will continue to provide value added services to them,” said Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World.

The MSC SEA-3250 type platform is 75.9 meters long, 40 meters wide and 6 meters deep. The vessel is classed by ABS with Maltese Cross A1 Self Elevating Unit notation. She is being built for Self Elevating Platforms N.V., a repeat customer of Drydocks World. Major construction milestones have been achieved and the remaining ones include the installation of four 87.7-metre tubular legs and a 1000-tonne crane.
