Norway’s Aker Solutions has signed a contract with Hyundai Heavy Industries to supply a complete drilling equipment topside package for a new semisubmersible drilling rig being built for rig contractor Seadrill by the South Korean yard.
The contract includes an option to supply one further drilling equipment package. Aker Solutions will handle all major aspects of the topside equipment delivery, from engineering support and procurement to installation and commissioning.
The work will be executed in its facilities in Kristiansand, Horten, and Asker in Norway, and Erkelenz, Germany.
Installation and commissioning services will take place at the Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries yard in South Korea. Most of the equipment will be delivered in 2013, and the rig will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2014, Aker said.
