Noble Rig Jacking Mechanisms Failure At Jurong Shipyard Singapore

I got these photos from my friend. They are accident happened in Jurong Shipyard in Singapore on 3 Dec 2012.

The rig is belong to Noble. I don’t really know much details about the rig.

This is the updated from the News

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has confirmed with Jurong Shipyard that all workers have been accounted for. Of the 89 workers who were sent to hospital for treatment after the accident, the majority of workers have been discharged from hospital after receiving treatment for minor injuries.

 Preliminary findings suggest that one of the jacking mechanisms failed for the rig Noble Regina Allen berthed at the shipyard, causing the main hull of the rig to list to one side, leading to the accident.

Hopefully, they will be OK.

Let’s work safe.
