Derrick in the Caspian Sea


Derrick made by Mostostal Zabrze Realizacje Przemysłowe S.A. standing on the Caspian Sea. For the first time, the company oversees the assembly.

These are not easy contracts because hundreds of tone structures, set on the high seas, have to withstand powerful loads, and performance requires a high technological regime.

- For the first time, our client suggested us to supervise installation of the derrick - says Jarosław Pietrzyk, President of MZRP S.A. - Currently, two engineers of our company, Rafał Marek and Damian Giżycki, supervises the shipyard in Baku, Azerbaijan. It's a new experience for both the company and our employees, which may contribute to the expansion of cooperation also in this area for the next projects.

In 2015 MZRP S.A. completed the delivery of three more drilling rigs for projects COBALT in Korea, CDC in Azerbaijan and DRU2 in Brazil. Since the beginning of cooperation with the Norwegian partner, the company already produced 21 such structures.

- Last year, three projects have been extended to the supply pipelines and special housings towers - emphasizes Pietrzyk. - In total, the company received on this account sales exceeding 40 millions PLN, which was an important element in the year-round activities.

In 2016, it can, however, change. The decline in oil prices translated into an industry seeking new deposits. - Several projects conducted by our client have been suspended or even shelved. One such example is a contract for the supply of towers to Brazil Series DRU - already delivered three towers of the planned seven - explains Jarosław Pietrzyk.

Production of the next should just begin, but the company is still waiting on a customer's decision to continue the project.

- From our side, we can start the production at any moment, since these products are repetitive, performed on the basis of the same document - explains Pietrzyk.
