The rig has also achieved a zero-accident safety record during her more than two million manhours of construction period. At its inauguration ceremony held in Abu Dhabi recently, Mr Tong Chong Heong, Managing Director/Chief Operating Officer of Keppel O&M, said, "The early delivery of Al-Hail is testament to Keppel's promise to our customers to complete our projects on-time, on-budget and above all, safely.
