Top Hull installed upon 'Edrill-3'

The construction of Energy Drilling’s latest semi-tender rig has marked a significant milestone with the successful installation of EDrill-3’s Upper Hull deck box modules in the first week of December, a little more than a month after the lower hull was launched towards the end of October. The EDrill-3’s Upper Hull has been constructed and outfitted with major equipment packages in parallel with the Lower Hull since the project’s outset. Living Quarters module is undergoing pre-lift preparations and will be installed in the second week of December. The Edrill-3 is being constructed at Cosco Guangdong Shipyard in southern China. The project team is led by Edrill’s project manager, Jason Tan and his counterpart, Zhu Qing from Cosco. A beaming Zhu Qing said, “We are very pleased with results of the upper hull lifting operations and fit up. A lot of engineering and planning has gone into this to ensure we have a smooth and safe operation. The project will now go into its final phase of completion, testing and commissioning. We want to make sure that our client has a first class rig ready by 3Q 2015”. EDrill-3 is a four column Ocean Class design by MSC Gusto. It will be the largest semi-tender in the world when completed next year.
