The semisub was acquired by Essar recently and is presently being prepared for the voyage to her new destination, Kakinada India. Due to the height of the derrick a voyage via the Suez Canal was not a possibility and therefore the voyage go via Cape of Good Hope.
Based on our experience with the sister rig to the Essar Wildcat, the Frontier Driller which achieved speeds with Fairmount Glacier of well over 8 knots in normal weather conditions, we expect that the voyage should be completed in approximately 72 days, weather permitting.
