ABB to power Ocean Rig’s drillship duo

ABB has secured an order to deliver total power solutions to Ocean Rig’s two seventh generation new drillships that are being built by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) at Goeje shipyard in Korea.

The contract includes an option to extend the delivery to two additional vessels.

ABB’s scope of delivery to the ultra deep water (UDW) drillships includes total power and propulsion solutions for drilling and propulsion, system engineering and project management, calculations, analysis and interface coordination and site management and commissioning service. The drilling vessels will be delivered to Ocean Rig in 2017.

“Samsung Heavy Industries has established itself as the leading builder of drillships by delivering high-tech vessels of unmatched quality. This contract continues our long and successful relationship with SHI – with the latest order included, ABB have delivered marine solutions to over 60 drillships built by SHI”, says Heikki Soljama, head of ABB’s business unit Marine and Cranes.

“We always strive for optimal operational efficiency from the moment we start designing a new vessel. Modern fleet that features state of the art technology gives us a competitive edge,” says David Cusiter, VP Engineering and Projects from Ocean Rig.

With the latest order included, 11 of Ocean Rig’s drillships feature ABB’s integrated marine solutions.

“ABB has a long history of bringing new solutions to the market by combining state-of-the-art technologies with deep understanding of the different industries. By working closely with our customers, we can match our competence with market requirements and translate them into tangible benefits to our customers,” Soljama adds.
