The unit will have the following features:

"The positive response to our first new build order has led us to finance this second order. We find working with DSIC Offshore's construction teams and executive management to be a rewarding experience, and look forward to broadening our relationship through this additional new build unit," said Evan Claar, Chairman of CBI-MMEER Accommodations Ltd.

"This High-Spec Jackup Unit will provide the offshore industry with exceptional Accommodation and Construction Support, and fills a need for new equipment built to the highest safety standards," said Mike Mullen, Director of CBI-MMEER Accommodations Ltd.

"This newbuild design takes into account the new requirements coming forth from the oil companies operating in Australia, Southeast Asian Rim, the Middle East and in addition is well suited for accommodation and support construction projects in the Southern Sector of the North Sea," Mullen told Rigzone.

CBI-MMEER Accommodations Ltd. is a joint venture between CBI Capital LLC and Mike Mullen Energy Equipment Resource, Inc. The venture has orders for two High-Spec Accommodation and Construction Assist Jackups for delivery in 2015.
