Equipment Investment Pays Off for CBB
Despite the fierce competition among shipyards abroad, Coast Center Base (CCB), a subsidiary of NorSea Group, has won a contract for a five-year class renewal survey on the rig Bideford Dolphin.
CCB has over the years acquired great expertise and a wide range of services related to the classification of ships and rigs.
“For CCB and our partners, this is important. We have made investments to come out as best equipped and then it’s obviously nice to get assignments like this”, says Project Director Ronny Haufe.
Bideford Dolphin is currently under contract with Statoil, and is coming to CCB in the second quarter of 2014 to be approved for further operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
According to rig owner Dolphin Drilling, the classification job will take 65 days, including mobilization, and have a price tag of around $16.9 million.
According to Haufe, CCB will have upwards of 400 people working daily during the project.
