When the environmental conditions become more harsh and high workability is required drilling semi-submersible rigs are utilized. Our continuous design work combined with the latest Huisman R&D achievements resulted in two, state of the art, designs: Orion and JBF Arctic. These fully in-house developed designs are on the very front edge of the technology.
The Orion 900, 2500 and 3000, DP3 mobile offshore drilling units, are designed for harsh environments with maximum water depths of respectively 900 meter, 2400 meter and 3000 meter.
The JBF Arctic is a new revolutionary design for drilling in severe Arctic conditions. Excellent ice resistance in the winter season combined with very low motions in waves in open waters in summer season allows virtually all the year round utilization of the unit.
