Verolme Botlek Awarded Contract For Rig Modification

Following the successful modification of the jack-up drilling rig Britannia from a slot-type drilling unit to a cantilevered unit, completed recently within the contractual time, the Rotterdam Shipyard has contracted another rig modification job.

The Houston-based rigowners Reading and Bates awarded Verolme Botlek a contract for the fabrication and installation of a new heli-deck on the jack-up rig Ron Tappmeyer. Prefabrication started immediately after the contract was signed. The rig arrived at the shipyard the end of June for the actual modification and will be redelivered to the owners early in July 1985.
