Aker Solutions has won a contract from Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore Ltd to supply a complete drilling equipment package for a new jack-up drilling rig, being built by the Chinese yard.

The contract value is undisclosed.

The new rig is of the Friede & Goldman 2000E jack-up design, and the contract includes options for a further three jack-up rigs of the same design.

“We are pleased to see Aker Solutions’ competitive position in the jack-up market, which we expect to be active in the future,” says Thor Arne Håverstad, head of drilling technologies in Aker Solutions.

The equipment will be delivered in 2013.

Aker Solutions will provide drilling equipment from its production units in Kristiansand and Asker in Norway as well as Houston, US and Erkelenz in Germany.

Aker Solutions offers complete drilling equipment packages, including project management, engineering, procurement and commissioning. The company provides the full range of topside drilling equipment and systems, and worldwide customer support through a global drilling lifecycle services organisation.
