Dubai's Drydocks World has completed the major repair and refurbishment of National Drilling Company's (NDC) Jack Up drilling rig Al Ittihad.

The company has successfully carried out maintenance work on several of NDC's rigs and the numbers have increased over the years. Drydocks World received four orders in 2013 to add to the eight projects completed previously.

Khamis Juma Buamim, chairman of Drydocks World, said: "This is yet another achievement as we continue to pursue our strategy and action plans towards becoming the yard of choice for the offshore industry in this region and around the world.

"The yard has drawn on its internal engineering resources and other specialised capabilities to deliver the milestones on this project. We are grateful to NDC for their continued faith in our services and we assure them that we will continue to maintain the high standards of service delivery."

Abdalla Saeed Al Suwaidi, CEO of NDC, added: "These major repair and refurbishment projects, along with the undergoing expansion plans to acquire a growing number of state-of-the-art offshore and onshore rigs, are contributing significantly in advancing NDC's operational excellence and maintaining the highest levels of safety, environment protection and efficient performance. This will certainly enable NDC to serve its clients competently and always meet their operational requirements and achieve their satisfaction."
