Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Triyards has introduced what the Singapore-based fabricator deems a more “shipyard-friendly” premium class jackup capable of operation in 400 ft (122 m) water depths.

The TDU-400 has been designed to withstand 100-knot winds and accommodate up to 220 personnel. The rig will have a maximum 80-ft (24-m) cantilever outreach and is rated to drilling depths of 32,500 ft (9,906 m).

The company is in discussions with clients and expects to begin construction of the first TDU-400 within months, said Triyards Holding Ltd. Chairman Lionel Lee.

Triyards will launch a new 400,000-sq ft shipyard in Singapore by the end of 2013, Lee said at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston.

The Ezra Holdings affiliate currently operates two fabrication yards in Vietnam and one in Houston.
