    First self-propelled jack-up for Master Marine launched

    Vessel & ROV News // January 20, 2010

    Upstream Online reports that Oslo-based Master Marine has launched the first of its two self-propelled jack-up vessels currently under construction at Graha Shipyard in Batam, Indonesia.

    Service Jack 1 has a contract with ConocoPhillips as a jack-up accommodation unit on a fixed three-year charter, with two 12-month options to extend.

    “The unit has undergone extensive modifications from the original design and is scheduled to be transported on a heavy lift ship from Batam to Eydehavn in Norway in May,” Master Marine said in a statement.

    The report said the second unit, Service Jack 2, is due to be completed on schedule and delivered for work as a construction vessel in the third quarter.

    The unit will start work on an installation job for StatoilHydro and Statkraft's Sheringham Shoal windfarm, off the UK, in January next year.
