First jack-up drilling platform servicing and upgrading successfully completed by Remontowa

After extensive range of repair, maintenance and upgrading works, the self-elevating mobile drilling unit ENSCO 100 was smoothly towed out Gdansk Shiprepair Yard "Remontowa" SA and, taken over by sea-going tugs Magnus and Sea Tiger, set undertow for a trip out of the Baltic Sea on Sunday, November 15, 2009. This was the first large jack-up platform serviced by Remontowa and its fifth successfully completed job on a mobile offshore unit (the previous being semi-submersibles).


A big self-elevating mobile drilling unit ENSCO 100 entered Remontowa SA ship repair yard in Gdansk, Poland, in June 2009. The rig has been towed to Gdansk, Southern Baltic based yard from South-Eastern part of the North Sea (Netherlands sector), where it had been recently deployed, for an extensive range of works the range of which has been further expanded (comparing to initial specification) during the rig's stay in Gdansk. The range of works performed by Remontowa SA on ENSCO operated jack up included:

  • general repairs,
  • maintenance, protective coatings application / painting,
  • cleaning of the rig's legs,
  • gutting of accommodation block
  • installation of new interior outfit (accommodation refurbishment)
  • adding a new, additional deck to accommodation block
  • repairs or replacement of some items of equipment and systems, etc.

It is the first time any Polish yard is to service a large drilling jack-up platform. Previously only semi-submersible offshore platforms had been repaired, upgraded and/or converted in Poland - all of them at Remontowa SA. With top of the jack-up's three legs some 140 m above the sea level and width of 89 m, ENSCO 100 is also the highest and widest object so far, to enter the Port of Gdansk.

The new Client of Remontowa - Ensco International Incorporated (ENSCO) is a premier global offshore oil and gas drilling contractor. The Company’s fleet of 52 rigs is strategically located in the most prolific oil and gas markets. ENSCO was listed on "Fortune" Magazine's ranking of top 100 fastest growing American companies in 2008 and ranked # 18. The arrival of the jack up rig marks another instance for Remontowa of the rare occurrence of mobile offshore drilling units or other purpose offshore rigs coming to any Baltic yard from the North Sea and reflects Remontowa's renown for quality and competitiveness of its services.
