The enormous CJ70 X150 drilling rig is right now undergoing SPS incl. inspection of all 3 spudcans; an operation that is only possible when the rig is dry-docked.
Our dry dock at Hanøytangen is one of the largest in Europe. We have modified and reinforced the rock bottom so that we are now able to dry dock both Gusto MSC CJ70 X150 driilling rigs and mobile offshore drilling units (MODU)

Maersk Inspirer was the second CJ70-X150 rig to visit our dry dock. Last year, we reinforced the rock bottom of our dry dock with easy dry-docking of this exact type of jack-ups in mind.
Semco Maritime has been chosen to prepare the West Elara jack-up rig for a new assignment. Following upgrade, the rig will sail out to undertake a long-term contract in the North Sea for ConocoPhillips, starting up in 2018.
West Elara, owned by North Atlantic Drilling, will call at the Semco Maritime rig yard at Hanøytangen, Bergen, at the end of the year after expiry of current contract with Statoil.
