Borr takes another rig delivery from Keppel
Singapore’s offshore rig builder Keppel Offshore & Marine has delivered a newbuild jack-up rig, named Hild, to Borr Drilling.
Built to Keppel’s proprietary KFELS Super B Class design, Hild is the sixth jack-up that Keppel has delivered to Borr Drilling, out of the 11 that have been ordered.
The rig is capable of operating in 400 feet of water depth and drilling to 35,000 feet.
It is equipped with a maximum combined cantilever load of 2,700 kips and high capacity hook loads of two million pounds.
Following this delivery, Borr Drilling will have nine KFELS B Class and two KFELS A Class rigs in its fleet.
Developed by Keppel O&M’s technology arm, Offshore Technology Development, the KFELS B Class designs have a market share of about a quarter of all jack-up rigs delivered since 2000.
