First North Sea Rig semi close to completion in China
All are built in compliance with NORSOK and NPD standards and to meet zero emission requirements.
Steel cutting for the Beacon Pacific started in June, and the completed rig is expected to be ready for delivery at the end of 2017. All three newbuilds will feature technologies provided by Global Maritime (design and concept); Kongsberg Maritime (integrated control system with DP-3, thruster control, navigation, marine automation, emergency shutdown system, and fire and gas system); NOV (drilling facilities); Siemens (software/integration and electro systems); and Rolls-Royce (engines and thrusters).
The largest shareholder of North Sea Rigs is China International Marine Containers, which is in turn owned mainly by COSCO and China Merchants Group.
