The world’s largest jack-up rig reaches Norway (Gallery)

The world’s largest jack-up rig has arrived at Westcon Yards in Olen, Norway.

The Maersk Drilling-owned Maersk Intrepid rig, recently built in Singapore by Keppel, arrived at the Westcon yard yesterday.

The rig has sailed from Singapore with the heavy lift vessel Hawk. With a leg length of 206.8 meters Maersk Intrepid is the world’s largest jack-up rig.

“We have looked forward to the arrival of Maersk Intrepid. The rig is planning to stay at Westcon Yards for 50-60 days to train the crew, install third part equipment and to test the systems on board”, says Malvin Eide, rig manager at Westcon Yards.

These days it is 20 years since Safe Britannia entered Westcon as the first rig project of the yard. Westcon has since invested more than NOK 600 million in developing the yard and the organization, and more than 100 rig projects have been completed.
