The new rig has been given the name Maersk Inspirer.
The sister rigs are the largest and most advanced jack-up drilling rigs in the world and are designed for operation in harsh environments, such as the northern part of the North Sea and other areas in the world with similar weather conditions.
The Maersk Inspirer is scheduled to arrive in the North Sea by the end of 2004.
"The new features and capabilities of these rigs have already proven their value as they have been put to good use on the Maesk Innovator for our clients. The extended cantilever reach, the increased deck space & deck load and, not least, the improved efficiency of the Maesk Innovator has made the entry into the market a great success and we are confident that the Maesk Inspirer will be equally successful," said Tage Bundgaard, President of Maersk Contractors.
