HVAC for Offshore Rigs

Heinen & Hopman Singapore’s specialism is supplying HVAC systems for the offshore industry. Some of their main clients include Noble – a leading offshore drilling company – and Keppel FELS: one of the greatest suppliers of mobile offshore rigs. Keppel FELS and its network of offshore yards have successfully delivered almost half of the world’s newbuild jackup rigs and semisubmersibles in the past decade1.

Jackups for Noble

In the last couple of years, Heinen & Hopman Singapore supplied HVAC systems for many of Noble’s and Keppel FELS’ rigs. Six jackups (self-elevating drilling units) have been built at Jurong Shipyard Singapore, ordered by Noble Drilling Pte Ltd, and were delivered in 2013 and 2014:

  • Noble Regina Allen
  • Noble Mick O’Brien
  • Noble Houston  Colbert
  • Noble Sam Turner
  • Noble Tom Prosser
  • Noble Sam Hartley

All six of them are of the F&G JU3000E series and equipped with high-quality (Carrier centrifugal chillers, Daikin air handling units, and Hison ventilation fans) HVAC systems for the living quarters.
