Semi-submersible rig Stena Don arrived at Hanøytangen


Stena Drilling has selected Semco Maritime’s facilities at Hanøytangen for a warm stacking of the offshore drilling rig Stena Don. The rig will be warm stacked at the Hanøytangen yard in Bergen, ready for future work, explains Business Development Manager Øistein Tømte, Semco Maritime.

Stena Don arrived at the yard 16 November and has previously been on a contract in the Troll field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

Stena Don is a class 3 semi-submersible rig built in 2001, and has recently been upgraded with a modern equipment package. The harsh environment rig is suitable for drilling, completion and workover operations worldwide.

“Hanøytangen’s facilities include both wet dock and dry dock, which are tailored for assignments such as this where a rig arrives for a brief stopover, a Compliance Renewal survey or large-scale upgrade work before returning to operations,” says Øistein Tømte.

The well-equipped dock facilities at Hanøytangen comprise several dock areas, including a dry dock of 116x125 meters and quay areas with depths of at least 100 meters. The dockyard is fitted with modern equipment for repair and handling of rigs, rig gear and other very large elements on water and land, including crane capacity at all docking areas.
