Riyadh –  Arabian Drilling Company awarded a contract for Siemens to modernize a complete and integrated drilling-drives lineup, including auxiliaries and controls, which will be installed on an offshore jackup drilling rig for a customer in the Middle East.

The upgrade will enable the customer to meet the latest safety standards, among other features and benefits.

Delivery of the new system is planned for the early part of 2021.

The contract includes engineering, design, manufacturing, and delivery of the fully integrated modernization solutions based on Siemens’s BlueDrive technology.

The Master2Blue solution will use the footprint, cable network, and communication principles of the existing system, enabling quick, modular-style installation, commissioning, and startup, according to a company statement.

Commenting on the deal, Thomas Steenberg, Siemens Offshore Solutions, Business Development Director, said “As the reactivations of stacked and un-utilized drilling rigs are increasing, Siemens stands fully ready to modernize offshore rigs and ships to make them safer and more energy efficient.

“By using the latest drilling and propulsion drives technology, customers can assure their rigs and ships remain at the highest level of supportability for many years to come,” he added.
