Arctic Drill Ship
Designed for Arctic Conditions

  • Arctic Drill Ship

    The World's First Arctic Drill Ship

    It is the world's first arctic ship with outside temperatures as low as -40°C and has a design temperature of -50°C developed for drilling in the extreme cold environments.
    The arctic drill ship has a closed derrick based on the monocoque hull specifically designed for the ship's crew to be able to operate effectively and safely while consuming the least amount of energy.

    The offshore structure that enables drilling in the extreme cold weather conditions was developed to capitalize the resources that became more accessible as the Arctic sea ice is getting thinner due to global warming,

    The major characteristics of the arctic drill ship are the closed derrick based and the monocoque hull which are specifically designed for the ship's crew to be able to operate effectively and safely while consuming the minimum energy.
