Over 300 Domestic and International Dignitaries gathered at Yantai Raffles Shipyard to witness the dramatic climax to the mating ceremony of the Schahin ‘SS Amazonia’ Semi Submersible Drilling Rig. The Schahin ‘SS Amazonia’ is the second of two Semi Submersible Drilling Rigs which will be delivered to Schahin Oil & Gas Group. The Friede & Goldman designed ‘Millennium SA’ is a state of the art Semi Submersible Drilling Rig which has a drilling depth of up to 7,500 Meters and is equipped with a DP2 system. Mr. Brian Chang, Deputy Chairman of Yantai Raffles Shipyard Ltd. said “This is another remarkable achievement for Yantai Raffles and this is another significant milestone in the construction of Schahin’s ‘SS Amazonia’ Semi Submersible Drilling Rig. This is the Fourth Commercial Lift by our Award Winning TAISUN Crane, which is proving to the world that this is undoubtedly the future methodology for constructing Semi Submersibles. I would like to express my appreciation to our client, Schahin Oil and Gas, for their continued confidence in Yantai Raffles”.
