SINGAPORE – The SeaDragon I ultra-deepwater semisubmersible drilling rig, the largest ever completed in Singapore, set several milestones for Jurong Shipyard, the company says.

SeaDragon I, the first of two Moss Maritime CS50 MK II design DP-3 vessels ordered by SeaDragon and to be managed by Vantage, is the first in its class to be built from a six-column bare-deck hull, according to the Sembcorp Marine subsidiary Jurong Shipyard.

The semi is harsh-environment capable, and can drill to 35,000 ft (10,668 m) and operate in 10,000 ft (3,048 m) water depth. Delivery is scheduled for early next year following final commissioning and acceptance testing.
