Drydocks World, a Dubai-based international service provider to the shipping, maritime, offshore, oil, gas and energy sectors announced Thursday the completion of a refurbishment project on the National Drilling Company’s (NDC) offshore drilling jackup Beynouna (160' ILC). Drydocks World’s comprehensive rig services and innovative offshore project management methodology turned around the major repair on Beynouna ahead of schedule in 28 days. Drydocks World has previously completed numerous successful projects for NDC, progressively increasing our strategic alliance over the years.

For Beynouna Drydocks World carried out drydocking, hull treatment, crane repairs, HP piping, SW lines cleaning, accommodation repairs and treatment works. The quoted number of days to complete the project was 37, however Drydocks World managed to reduce the quoted repair duration and the project was efficiently completed in only 28 days. A total of 40 tons of steel was used in the 21 various tanks, with the pipe shop renewing all sea water pipes in just 7 days. The efficient completion of work on Beynouna reflects the focused attention and excellent project team support allocated towards this vessel in order to reach the milestone date.

The Drydocks World rig division and NDC worked together as an integrated unit in order to ensure quality execution on Beynouna, with excellent management support from both sides. Preparation and planning were key to the successful completion of Beynouna, reflecting Drydocks World and NDC’s commitment to the systematic provision and implementation of stringent HSEQ initiatives. As part of Drydocks World’s incentive program, the top performers were awarded with appreciation gifts from NDC and Drydocks World to recognize their diligent efforts in celebration of excellent delivery on Beynouna. Drydocks World looks forward to working with NDC again and is grateful for their continued faith in our services.
