SHARJAH, UAE – Fabricator Lamprell has inaugurated its new main facility in Hamriyah Free Zone.
It follows over three years of construction and an investment of $75 million. The facility covers an area of 335,000 sq m (3.6 million sq ft), with a quayside more than 1.4 km (0.87 mi) long.
Lamprell says it is one of the Middle East region’s foremost facilities in terms of oil and gas equipment manufacturing capability, accommodating up to 13 jackup rigs simultaneously and an additional five rigs in various stages of construction.
The focus will be on construction of newbuild jackups, liftboats, and rig refurbishment projects. The fully API-accredited facility also houses over 600 administration staff, a client office, workshops, and warehouse space.
CEO Nigel McCue said: “This facility increases the Group’s capacity significantly both in terms of area and quality and technology...”
