Fayard to Upgrade Maersk Gallant Jack-Up Rig (Denmark)

Continuing the long business relations Maersk Drilling placed the order for upgrading of the jack-up drilling rig Mærsk Gallant (built in 1993) with Fayard A/S located at the previous Lindø Yard in Munkebo, Funen.

In competition with other Northern European shipyards, Fayard qualified for the fourth time for the renovation and conversion of one of Maersk Drilling’s rigs.

The concept for the upgrading of Maersk Drilling’s Jack-Up Drilling Rig is therefore well known to Fayard but this time the renovation and modernization takes place at Fayard in Munkebo – the previous projects were carried out in Esbjerg and Hirtshals.

“According to our business policy, the company placing the order decides where they want the work carried out and we are very pleased that the upgrading of Maersk Gallant is going to take place in Fayard’s own area where we have direct access to all necessary facilities such as cranes, workshops, offices etc. required for an upgrading of this scope” says CEO Thomas Andersen, Fayard A/S.

Previously Fredericia Shipyard now Fayard A/S invested in 2011 in connection with the change of address to the Lindo Yard in new installations fulfilling the highest standards within equipment for repair and conversion of ships and offshore rigs.

During the spring of 2013 Fayard’s project team in Munkebo carried out a very comprehensive renovation and modernization of the Norwegian owned accommodation platform Borgholm Dolphin – a semi sub rig.

The upgrading of Maersk Gallant is planned to start April 2014 and will employ approx. 500 persons for 2 – 3 months.
