SembMarine delivers world's first eighth-generation drillship

·2-min read

The completion of the drillship marks a key milestone in SembMarine’s offshore construction track record.

Sembcorp Marine (SembMarine) has completed the delivery of the Deepwater Atlas, the world’s first eighth-generation drillship, for Triton Atlas GmBH, a Transocean subsidiary.

The completion of the drillship marks a key milestone in SembMarine’s offshore construction track record, says the company in a June 29 statement.

The vessel’s successful delivery is also a testament to the company’s “proven capabilities in providing innovative and pioneering solutions”, it adds.

Deepwater Atlas is the first of two ultra-deepwater drillships based on SembMarine’s proprietary Jurong Espadon 3T design. It is capable of operating at a water depth of 12,000 ft and drilling to depths of 40,000 ft.

The drillship, which represents a breakthrough in the industry with leading-edge capabilities for enhanced operational safety, efficiency and performance, is designed and equipped to optimise fuel consumption and lower emissions to support the industry’s commitment to a reduction in carbon footprint.

William Gu, SembMarine’s head of rigs and floaters says, “We are very pleased to achieve the delivery of Deepwater Atlas and to set many record firsts in the process. It gives us great pride to have designed and built for Transocean, the world’s first eighth-generation drillship of the highest industry specification, complete with a three-million-pound hook-load and breakthrough capabilities for 20,000 psi drilling operations.”

Wong Weng Sun, president & CEO of Sembmarine adds, “Sembcorp Marine’s continuous investments in innovation and technology development over the years have enabled the group to move up the value chain to develop industry-leading designs and solutions. We are very pleased to partner Transocean to raise the bar for the design and build of the next generation ultra-deepwater drillships.”

Shares in SembMarine closed 0.1 cent higher or 0.92% up at 11 cents on June 28.
