Yantai Raffles Mates Schahin Semisub Topsides

Yantai Raffles recently mated the topsides with the hull of the Schahin's Amazonia semisub drilling rig.

The Amazonia is the second of two semisubmersible drilling rigs which will be delivered to Schahin. The Friede & Goldman designed Millennium SA is a state of the art semisubmersible drilling rig which has a drilling depth of up to 7,500 meters and is equipped with a DP2 system.

Mr. Brian Chang, Deputy Chairman of Tantai Raffles Shipyard said, "This is another remarkable achievement for Yantai Raffles and this is another significant milestone in the construction of Schahin's Amazonia. This is the fourth commercial lift by our award winning TAISUN Crane, which is proving to the world that this is undoubtedly the future methodology for constructing semisubmersibles. I would like to express my appreciation to our client, Schahin, for their continued confidence in Yantai Raffles."
