Semco Maritime Secures Maersk Guardian Expansion Contract

International engineering firm Semco Maritime has secured a contract with Maersk Drilling for the expansion of the Maersk Guardian (350’ ILC) rig, which will be inserted at various fields in the Danish part of the North Sea from September 2016.

The agreement, which is worth over $14 million, will see Semco perform the installation of new accommodation blocks, as a supplement to existing quarters, on the jack-up rig. Maersk Guardian is currently located in Frederikshavn, where the rig will be situated during the entire refurbishing period.

Lars Skov Christensen, a senior vice president at Semco Maritime and the head of the company’s rig division, commented in a company statement:

“It is very encouraging that an internationally respected operator such as Maersk Drilling chooses us. That confirms that our strategy is competitive in a challenged rig market.”
