The Atlantic Rotterdam jack – up unit visited Remontowa SA for maintenance and upgrade

On Sunday, February 20, large semi-submersible drilling rig Wilphoenix was transferred towed from Gdansk Shiprepair Yard "Remontowa" own facilities in Gdańsk to hired graving dock in nearby Gdynia for upgrade and maintenance finishing touches. The space at Gdansk "Remontowa's" facilities, made available by the transfer of Wilphoenix to Gdynia, was immediately filled with another mobile unit Atlantic Rottedam, which arrived on Monday, February 21. This has brought the current number of mobile offshore units being simultaneously serviced or upgraded at "Remontowa" to four, which is the case for the first time not only at any Polish yard, but most likely, also in the whole Baltic Sea region.

It was brought to "Remontowa" mainly for maintenance and upgrade. There are a wide range of steel works in ballast tanks to be made.
