Blue Water wins yard stay project

April 15 - Maersk Drilling has chosen Blue Water Shipping to handle transportation and logistics services for the semi-submersible drilling rig Maersk Deliverer during its yard stay in South Africa.

Blue Water will be responsible for all transport-related assignments, warehousing and quayside crane operations. The project will involve many of the company's worldwide offices to arrange a large number of time-sensitive shipments by both air and sea.

Blue Water has provided transport and logistics services in connection with yard stays for several other Maersk Drilling rigs before.

Thomas Bek, global head of oil, gas and industrial projects at Blue Water, said that the company's previous experience was important when it comes to complex projects like this. "When coordinating the transports of spare parts and other services in connection with yard stays for these rigs, there is no room for error," he said.
