Dundee Docks, Drilling Rigs at Prince Charles Wharf
Dundee Docks, Drilling Rigs at Prince Charles Wharf
Two jack-up drilling rigs at their berths at Dundee’s Prince Charles Wharf. The platforms regularly come to Dundee for scheduled repairs but are currently moored long-term due to a downturn in the offshore drilling industry. Rowan Stavanger has been at Dundee since July 2015 and Rowan Norway since June 2016 when their respective contracts were completed. With a height of approximately 170 metres, the two massive rigs, which house up to 120 offshore workers when in service, make an impressive sight as you approach Dundee via the Tay.

Dundee is a good location for taking jack-up rigs as it is an easily-accessible deep water port and is close to where the rigs have recently been operational.
