SembMarine wins $346m rig order

Sembcorp Marine's Jurong Shipyard has won a $346m contract to build a semi-submersible well intervention rig for Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc.

The DP3-capable semi-submersible light well intervention rig is a second order from Helix Energy, a provider of subsea well intervention services.

The rig, scheduled for delivery in mid-2016, has the ability to operate in deepwater operations worldwide including the North Sea and West of Africa.

“This repeat order is significant as it testifies as to their trust and confidence in our design and building capabilities in rigs with well intervention and subsea capabilities that are customised to meet this new growth segment of the market,” said William Gu, general manager of offshore division of SembMarine.
