Field Lifecycle and Wind Maintenance

The NG's are a series of multi-purpose jack-ups. These units undertake transit and positioning offshore without tug assistance. The four legs and diagonal preloading capability allow for easy, fast, and secure jacking and pre-loading operations.

The NG-5500X is intended for use in water depths of up to 55 m in a North Sea type rough environment and up to 75 m in a moderate type of environment. With this capability, the unit is able to cover all Southern North Sea fields.

The large free deck can accommodate additional accommodation modules making the unit perfectly suitable for maintenance works and all kinds of services.
