Odfjell’s Rig Sunk and Lies on Seabed by Quay at DSME Yard

On 28 December 2013, the semisubmersible rig “Deepsea Aberdeen”, currently under construction at Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) in Korea, experienced water ingress on pontoon while moored at the yard’s quay. 

Immediate evacuation was commenced and the rig was stabilized on the sea bed with draft at around 21 meters.

No injuries to personnel have been reported.

Odfjell Drilling sad that the company is awaiting information from DSME and will submit more information in due time.

Deepsea Aberdeen is an enhanced GVA7500 design.

Until now the rig was due for delivery in May 2014 and set on a 7-year contract for BP in the West of Shetland area.

The unit is designed for operations in harsh environments and at water depths of up to 3,000 m.
