Lamprell Completes Haven Rig Upgrade
Lamprell announced it has completed work to upgrade the mobile operating unit Haven as an accommodation service vessel for use offshore Norway. The unit has been delivered to Jacktel AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Master Marine AS, within budget and as scheduled.
The contract for the Haven rig upgrade was awarded in September 2016 and involved procurement, construction and installation of extended legs and new suction caissons. Lamprell (LAM.L) fabricated the leg sections and the caissons in its Hamriyah yard in the United Arab Emirates and the newly-constructed rig components were then installed on to the Haven unit in Norway, before completing the final 48-hour jacking trial.
The Haven will be used to accommodate up to 400 personnel during offshore installation and commissioning activities at Statoil's strategic Johan Sverdrup phase 1 development project. There were zero recordable incidents across the more than 2.5 million manhours completed on the project.
