Client: Our client is one of the largest offshore drilling contractors in the world. The company has the most versatile fleet of mobile offshore drilling units that help companies extract oil and natural gas.
Need: Since our client is engaged in the business of offshore drilling, their drillships venture into deep sea and hostile environment. Due to this, their vessel’s hull suffers various types of damages due to corrosion and barnacle deposition.
