Aker Solutions has been awarded another contract for a deepwater marine drilling riser by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME). Contract value is approximately $35 million. The contract is for the delivery of a complete deepwater marine drilling riser system with buoyancy package and associated equipment. The system is for a drillship that DSME is building.
"DSME is one of the world's major players when it comes to building drilling units for deepwater and ultra-deepwater conditions, so they are an important customer," said Svein Haug, senior vice president Umbilical & Riser, Aker Solutions. "This is the third contract we are signing with DSME this year, which underlines what a good match our deepwater technologies are."
The marine drilling riser system will be manufactured and delivered out of Aker Solutions' high tech manufacturing centre in Malaysia.
