Daewoo Shipbuilding gets order for Danish jack-up rig

Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering said yesterday it secured a $530 million order from Denmark’s Maersk Drilling to build a large jack-up rig.

The shipbuilder said in a statement it was its first large jack-up rig order since 1983.

The rig will be designed for the environment of the North Sea.

It will be manufactured at Okpo Shipyard in Geoje, South Gyeongsang, and delivered around 2016 and sent to a location near in Norway.

This year, DSME has secured $10 billion worth of orders, which fulfills 77 percent of its annual target.
