MHWirth, a company owned by Akastor ASA, signed a contract with Keppel FELS for delivery of one drilling equipment package for a new mid water semisubmersible drilling rig. This is the first out of three options that were given when Keppel FELS and MHWirth signed a contract in April 2018 for a similar drilling equipment package.

The rig will be built for Awilco Drilling PLC by Keppel FELS Limited in Singapore. Delivery is planned for Q1 2022. The contract value for the drilling equipment package, including a mid-water riser package, is approximately USD 100 million. This will be included in the order intake in Q2 2019.
