The Offshore Division of Houston
Ship Repair. Inc. (HSR) completed two rig upgrades for Global Marine. HSR was the primary contractor for the re- powering and mud system enhancement stages of the Glomar Baltic I upgrade project. The Marathon LeTourneau
Super 300 jackup drilling rig was re- powered with five Caterpillar type 3516
TA V, 1,305 kW diesel generator sets, replacing the three existing EMD diesel engine driven 1.400 kW generators.
HSR was also contracted to replace the two existing National 12-P-160 mud pumps with three National 14-P-220 mud pumps. HSR removed the existing generator and mud pump units, installed the new units and modified as necessary, the associated system piping and auxil- iaries associated with the generators and mud pumps. HSR performed all the structural modifications necessary for the new installations. Additionally, the engineering for the structural modifica- tions and the detail engineering for the piping systems were done by HSR. This project was carried out in Sabine Pass,
