Working at Height Requires Mentality & Professionalism

  • Professionalism

  • Attitude

  • Experience

The former drillship Hidden Gem came into the port of Rotterdam at the end of August 2021. Her owner bought this vessel with the intention of making it suitable for collecting manganese nodules from the seabed. For this purpose, the condition of the drilling rig and its equipment was investigated and the owner developed a scope of work based on all findings. The scope included removing equipment from the derrick, replacing bolts, repairs to the derrick and items in the derrick, and other work. After close consultation with the owner and a signed contract, Wagenborg Foxdrill mobilized a team of four for support on the Hidden Gem.
