Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) has, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Keppel FELS, delivered the jack-up rig, Hild, to Borr Drilling.

Built to Keppel's proprietary KFELS Super B Class design, Hild is the sixth jack-up that Keppel has delivered to Borr Drilling, out of the 11 that have been ordered. It is capable of operating in 400 ft water depth and drilling to 35 000 ft, and is equipped with a maximum combined cantilever load of 2700 kips and high capacity hook loads of 2 million pounds.

Following this delivery, Borr Drilling will have nine KFELS B Class and two KFELS A Class rigs in their fleet.

Developed by Keppel O&M's technology arm, Offshore Technology Development, the KFELS B Class designs have a market share of about a quarter of all jack-up rigs delivered since 2000. The rig incorporates environmentally friendly features which provide maximum uptime with reduced emissions and discharges.

Keppel O&M had previously delivered the Saga, Skald, Thor, Hermod and Heimdal jack-up rigs to Borr Drilling.
