Spotlight on: Rowan Viking
The Rowan Viking is one of the largest rigs of the Keppel Fels ‘N’ class drilling rigs. The rig has to be prepared for a job in the deep Norwegian waters for which it needs a leg extension. The legs are lengthened with 10 metres to an impressive 180 metres at the quayside of Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen. The project is supervised by Damen Shiprepair and Conversion’s special task force ‘Offshore & Conversion’. Thanks to the method chosen by the task force, a lot of work can be carried out simultaneously, drastically shortening the turnaround time.
