Maersk Drilling's fourth drillship designed for deep water was named on Thursday at a ceremony at the shipyard Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) in Korea. The drilling vessel has been named "Maersk Voyager". The four drill ships were ordered in 2011 and represents a total investment of 2.6 billion dollars.

"The short-term floater market is challenged, but we shall continue to conduct interviews with several oil companies regarding short and long-term drilling campaigns Maersk Voyager," says Claus V. Hemmingsen, CEO. Director of Maersk Drilling.

Maersk Voyager is expected to be delivered from the shipyard in the final quarter, but has thus not had its first contract.

The ships are designed to remain in the same position even in very rough weather and can handle up to 11-meter high waves and wind speeds up to 26 meters per second. There has also been a lot of focus on safety on board, and therefore the operation done with a high degree of automation.
