The Deepwater Atlas, the first drillship of the eighth generation in the world, was successfully delivered by Sembcorp Marine Ltd to Transocean's subsidiary Triton Atlas GmBH ("Transocean"). A significant turning point in Sembcorp Marine's history of offshore construction was reached with the completion of Deepwater Atlas. The vessel's successful delivery is evidence of the Group's demonstrated capacity to offer ground-breaking solutions.

Deepwater Atlas is the first of two ultra-deepwater drillships based on the Group’s proprietary Jurong Espadon 3T design. The completed drillship features three-million-pound hook-load hoisting capacity and sets a new frontier for next generation drillships with its ability to accommodate well control systems for 20,000 psi (pounds per square inch) drilling and completion operations.

Capable of operating at 12,000 feet water depth and drilling to depths of 40,000 feet, Deepwater Atlas represents a breakthrough in the industry with leading-edge capabilities for enhanced operational safety, efficiency and performance. With capacity to accommodate a crew of 220, the drillship is designed and equipped to optimise fuel consumption and lower emissions to support the industry’s commitment to a reduction in carbon footprint.

Sembcorp Marine Head of Rigs and Floaters Mr William Gu said, “We are very pleased to achieve the delivery of Deepwater Atlas and to set many record firsts in the process. It gives us great pride to have designed and built for Transocean, the world’s first eighth-generation drillship of the highest industry specification, complete with a three-million-pound hook-load and breakthrough capabilities for 20,000 psi drilling operations.”

Mr Wong Weng Sun, Sembcorp Marine President & CEO, said, “Sembcorp Marine’s continuous investments in innovation and technology development over the years have enabled the Group to move up the value chain to develop industry-leading designs and solutions. We are very pleased to partner Transocean to raise the bar for the design and build of the next generation ultra-deepwater drillships.”
