Fayard will upgrade another Maersk jack-up oil rig this September 2012, in Esbjerg. This is the drilling rig Maersk Resolute, owned by Maersk Drilling, which Fayard, based in the shipyard Lindøværftet, has been deemed qualified to renovate and rebuild in competition with a host of other European companies, says Fayard in a statement on Monday.
“We had the main contract on Maersk Guardian in summer 2011, and right now we have the main contract on Maersk Giant. We appreciate all contracts, but we are especially pleased with this one, as it shows that it weren’t jus one-off performances when we secured the orders for Maersk Guardian in 2011 and Maersk Giant in 2012. We are established as one of the permanent players in the jack-up rig market,” says Thomas Andersen, CEO and owner of Fayard, former the shipyard Frederecia Skibsværft.
