ē GE Will Provide Maintenance Services and Supervise the Entire Dry-Docking of the Two Semi Sub Drilling Vessels, Northern Lights and Polar Star, with CIMC Raffles;
ē GE Will Exploit Its System Capability, Service Excellence and Service Know-How to Ensure Vessel Performance Optimization;
ē After the Dry-Docking is Completed, GE Will Continue to Provide Remote Technical Assistance for the Vessels, Further Enhancing Drilling Productivity.

Such explorations require robust and reliable equipment to work under some of the most difficult conditions imaginable. As such, there is a need for genuine partnerships with companies that understand what it takes and are well-positioned to deliver technologies that support more efficient exploration activities.

GEís Marine Solutions was recently awarded a service contract by CIMC Raffles to provide the first dry-dock services on two of Gazflotís semi sub drilling vessels Northern Lights and Polar Star. During the dry-docking, GEís Marine Solutions will thoroughly test its scope of supply and will replace and upgrade parts where necessary.

With years of experience in carrying out similar activities, historical data from these vessels and an understanding of how systems interact with each other, GEís Marine Solutions is ideally placed as a one-stop solution to carry out the dry-docking of these vessels. This dry-docking will enable Gazflot to continue operating its vessels at optimum levels.

ďGE will not only carry out the required maintenance activities on the two vessels, but will also be assisting with the supervision of the activities throughout dry-docking. We are impressed by GEís technical and operational finesse and look forward to working with them in the long-term,Ē said Mr. Yongqiang Shao, deputy general manager, CIMC Raffles.

Commenting on the contract, Andrey Nikireev, deputy head of power supply department, Gazflot, said,ďWe have been very happy with GE, and its technology is running flawlessly on board our vessels. GEís deep understanding of these technologies makes them an ideal partner for this dry-docking, and with GEís engineers carrying out the maintenance activities, we are confident that our vessels are in a safe pair of hands.Ē

The two vessels were equipped with GE technologies including dynamic positioning, automation, drilling drives, MV 7000 propulsion drives, Power Management System, Vessel Management System and Thruster Assisted Mooring System. These technologies have been reliably at work on Gazflotís ice class vessels, which are capable of drilling up to 10,000 feet in the adverse conditions in Northern Russia. Through the current contract, GEís team of on-site engineers will ensure the longevity of installed systems while working with the yard to supervise the dry-docking activities.

ďWe have had a long-standing relationship with Gazflot and are happy to further our partnership through this deal. With our reliable technologies on board their vessels, GE is at the heart of Gazflotís exploration activities. Our thorough maintenance services and assurance of providing technical support for these vessels will ensure uninterrupted operations for Gazflot in the years to come,Ē said Tim Schweikert, president & CEO, GEís Marine Solutions.

After the dry-docking, GE will continue to provide remote technical support for the Northern Lights and Polar Star semi sub drilling vessels.
