International Maritime Industries (IMI) has completed maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) work for an ARO Drilling jack-up rig, Rigzone reports.
The ARO-2003 (SAR201) “Baker Marine” design jack-up carried out the MRO work at the Damman Shipyard for Saudi Aramco in the Arabian Gulf. According to Darren Macdonald, IMI’s COO, this project strengthens ties between ARO, IMI and Dammam Shipyard, “as well as contribute to the development of a localised industry.”
IMI is currently building what is reportedly to be the largest full-service maritime facility in the MENA region at the King Salman Complex, Saudi Arabia. The facility’s annual capacity will be four new-build offshore rigs, more than 43 new-build vessels including very large crude carriers (VLCCs) and the ability to service more than 260 maritime products. Operations are expected to begin towards the end of the year, with the goal of achieving full production capacity by 2022.
