This new build drillship will now undergo the scheduled preparation and final acceptance testing by Repsol, to whom it is being hired on a three year contract.

It is still expected to start its operations for the Welwitschia-1 well, operated by Repsol and in which Tower has a 30% interest, on or around 11 April, with the spud being approximately one week later.

The Rowan Renaissance is a new build, dual-stack, 6th generation drillship,  constructed in the Ulsan shipyard, South Korea, by Hyundai Heavy Industries and is on a three year, international, multi-well contract with Repsol.
