Singapore's Triyards Introduce New HPHT Jack-up Design

Press Release
Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Triyards Holdings now able to design & build its own proprietary drilling jack-up rigs and self-elevating units (SEUs).

The new design is for the Premium Class 400 HPHT (High Pressure, High Temperature) drilling jack-up rig, the TDU-400.

The TDU-400 is designed to withstand up to 100-knot winds while satisfying wave criteria for global deployment. Able to provide accommodation for up to 220 personnel, the jackup boasts leg lengths of more than 535ft (approximately 163m) and can operate in water depths of up to 400ft (approximately 120m).

Tridyards’ Chief Executive Officer, Mr Wong Bheet Huan, said: “This latest design demonstrates that our dedication to enhancing our engineering capabilities has paid off, expanding the scope of our product offerings.

“Designed to be ‘lighter weight’ without compromising operating performance, the TDU-400 is competitively priced and will make a worthy addition to our growing range of proprietary products. This will certainly propel us closer to our goal of becoming a leading shipyard in the region.”

According to Mr Wong, the TDU-400 is designed to capitalise on the most advanced drilling systems and equipment available today. It can also be quickly customised to meet the distinct needs of different clients without having to be continuously redesigned, thus avoiding the costs associated with such variation orders.

Triyards say that they offer a broad spectrum of engineering and fabrication services. The Company currently owns and operates two fabrication yards in Ho Chi Minh City (Triyards SSY) and Vung Tau (Triyards SOFEL) in Vietnam, as well as another in Houston in the US (Triyards Houston).
