Pennecon Energy was awarded the GSF Grand Banks refit contract by Transocean to repair and modify the GSF Grand Banks – a thruster assisted, semi-submersible drill rig rated for 1,500 ft water depth and a drilling depth of 25,000 ft. contracted to drill offshore Newfoundland by Husky Energy.
The refit work took place at Nalcor Energy’s mooring site in Bull Arm, NL, and included architectural, piping, structural steel, electrical, instrumentation, hydraulic and mechanical personnel and equipment. Specifically, we removed, inspected, overhauled and installed the drilling systems and equipment, as well as took measures to preserve the existing hull, including surface blasting and painting steel surfaces, including columns, deck areas and tanks.
To ensure the project remained on schedule, Pennecon Energy began prefabrication work in advance of the GSF Grand Banks’ arrival to Bull Arm and Pennecon Energy’s Project Management Team provided all necessary labor to mobilize equipment, scaffolding, heavy equipment and cranes to support the project. The team included project managers, planning and scheduling engineering, construction management and supervision, quality and safety professionals, cost management and field engineering.
