Wagenborg Foxdrill is renowned for its specialised activities in the energy sector. You also find a team of experts of a totally different calibre at Wagenborg Foxdrill: technicians who master every secret of engines, pumps and related equipment. David Kamphuis is Job Preparation Engineer for this type of work and gives a behind-the-scenes insight.
For many years Wagenborg Foxdrill has been a trustworthy partner of the Italian offshore firm Saipem. Having worked together on a variety of drilling asset related projects in all corners of the world, a solid relationship has been formed between both companies. This partnerships continues after an enquiry from Saipem’s Offshore Drilling team early 2019: the Saipem 12000, a 6th Generation ultradeepwater drill ship, was due for a Special Periodic Survey and required specialised support. We talk to project manager Bart Oude Ophuis about this project.
