The second platform

On the 23rd of September 2008 OAO PO Sevmash shipbuilders handed over the second maritime platform MOSS CS-50.

Platform is built by Moss Mosvold Platforms AS (Norway) order, designer - Moss Maritime AS (Norway), building investor Sea Dragon (Great Britain). It is already the second platform of such type built at OAO PO Sevmash. The first object was commissioned in September 2007.

Our strategic task is to come to serial production of maritime equipment, said Nikolay Kalistratov during solemn ceremony. Today we carry on negotiations regarding the third and following platforms. We hope to receive orders from foreign and native companies.

Design-automation system is implemented, procedures of complex welds manufacturing, large sections mounting are developed in order to build MOSS platforms at OAO PO Sevmash. These engineering solutions allowed platform assembly afloat within 3.5 months. This is an optimum period of performing such operation at Russian shipyards.

We have made sure that in future Sevmash can build not only platforms with free deck, but also complete drilling platforms, noticed president of design bureau Moss Maritime AS Per Herbert Christensen.

In October MOSS CS-50 platform is planned to leave Sevmash water area. According to Sea Dragon Boards of Directors Chairman Steven Bayer, in future platform will be fitted with drilling equipment and in 2010 it will be put in operation in the Gulf of Mexico.
