Jurong Shipyard

Jurong Shipyard awarded a USD‑160‑million contract to ABB for design, supply, installation supervision, testing, and commissioning of the main electrical systems for seven drillships. The vessels will be used in the pre-salt fields of the ultradeepwaters offshore Brazil. They are the first in a series of high-efficiency drillships designed and built by Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz at its shipyard in Espiritu Santo, Brazil. The ships will be delivered to Sete Brazil and chartered to Petrobras.
