The key is to focus on the essential functionality for deepwater drilling. Whereas ultra-deepwater units feature ever increasing hook loads and capacities, these requirements can be reduced for a large amount of the wells in deepwater. Designing the Scylax based on these rationalised requirements allows for different choices to be made in the design, reducing building and operating costs.

Designed around the drilling process, the Scylax provides deep water drilling in a compact design based on a single derrick or drilling mast set-up with off-line stand building, dual BOPs, up to 10 000 ft water depth capability and ample capacity mud systems. Drilling equipment packages of all major manufacturers can be readily integrated into the design. Signature GustoMSC design features, like maximised usable deck areas resulting from the integrated design and dedicated use, in-hull riser storage and in-hull mud and bulk systems and protected walkways, add to the operational safety and efficiency.
