The jack-up rig Hild was delivered by Keppel O&M subsidiary Keppel FELS and built to its KFELS B Design. It is the second such rig the yard has delivered to Borr Drilling this year.
It is the sixth of 11 newbuild jack-up rigs Borr Drilling has on order at Keppel.
A relative newcomer to the rig market established by former John Fredriksen right hand man Tor Olav Troim and bought up a number of rig newbuildings terminated by other customers after the collapse in the oil price and the offshore drilling market.
Following this delivery, Borr Drilling will have nine KFELS B Class and two KFELS A Class rigs in their fleet.
