Installation and commissioning services will take place at the Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries yard in South Korea. Aker Solutions also offers training services in its upgraded facilities in South Korea. Most of the equipment will be delivered in 2013 and the rig will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Aker Solutions offers complete drilling equipment packages, including project management, engineering, procurement and commissioning. The company provides the full range of topside drilling equipment and systems, and worldwide customer support through a global drilling lifecycle services organisation.
