We are, at present, a significant supplier in the offshore sector, and offer engineer services, maintenance and modifications to drilling companies and rig owners all over the world. Our activities are specifically tailored to the rig companies’ requirements and activities.
Worldwide, we offer drilling companies and rig owners:
With our yard in Ølen, in western Norway – one of Norway’s most modern and successful industrial shipyards – as the starting point, we have executed more than 150 rig contracts since 1994. Today we also execute rig contracts at our yards in Florø, Nesna, or in international waters.
It is important for us to be present in the early phase of projects in order to be able to plan the rig’s time at the yard efficiently. In order to reduce the rig’s turnaround time (during the yard stay), we carry out early phase 3D scanning and engineering work, so that much of the prefabrication work has been done before the rig arrives at the yard.
With regard to offshore installation contracts, we prefabricate as much as is possible in our workshops on land to minimize the installation period, and we send out our most experienced and multidisciplinary personnel in order to limit the number of personnel on board.
Our skilled and specialized experts handle the whole value chain in the delivery, from engineering to planning and execution phases. We always focus on the customer’s requirements in all that we do, and we deliver the agreed level of quality on time.
Our flexible workforce are able to support Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODU) on most locations. Our engineers know the subject areas regulations, and we have the right toolbox to implement projects cost effectively.
