“Greatdrill Chaaru” has been designed according to the LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) Class design.

Bharat Sheth, Chairman, Greatship Group commented: “There has been excellent teamwork between the Lamprell and Greatship project team members, they have completed the project ahead of time without any major incidents and I am impressed, above all, with the quality of workmanship.”

Commenting on the delivery, Jim Moffat, Chief Executive Officer, Lamprell, said: “I am pleased to be marking the early completion and delivery of this rig to Greatship. Our project team has performed extremely well to deliver this project ahead of schedule, as per the client’s requirements and within budget.
