Semco Maritime to Service Island Innovator Drilling Rig

Semco Maritime announced Monday that it will refurbish and service the Island Innovator (mid-water semisub) when the rig arrives at the company’s dock area at Hanøytangen, Bergen, in early March.

Constructed in 2012, the Island Innovator is owned by Island Drilling and operated by Oddfjell Drilling. Once in Semco’s dock, the rig will undergo “minor” maintenance procedures, according to a Semco statement.

Semco Maritime Vice President Nikolaj Vejlgaard commented in a company statement:

“The rig arrives at Hanøytangen from an assignment for Lundin Petroleum in the Norwegian part of the North Sea to undertake minor refurbishment and maintenance. Subsequently, the rig will be docked and operational at Hanøytangen until its next contract work commences.

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