    Here are some shots of my equipment on the ship. Took them about a year to install all of this.

    Twin GE Electric motors make 1250 hp EACH!




    The white lines are sea water cooling lines to cool the transmissions, pumps, and 1250 hp electric motors


    15,000 psi high pressure pump

    these two big cans get dry bulk cement blown to them, from there is falls into a recirculating water jet where it is mixed to the proper density and then we pump it down the hole


    The two tubs on the left and right are where the cement mixes, those then overflow into the big tub in the middle which is then recirculated and pumped down hole


    With this set up we can mix and pump cement at over 15 bpm. which is equal to 630 gallons a minute and we can do this at pressure in excess of 5,000 psi.

    we only have 64,368 hp (10,728 hp per engine x 6 engines). But even with all that engine power, we only have 40,230 hp of thrusts with 6 thrusters at 6,705 hp each. We just need more power!

    So here are some more fun drill ship facts!
    752 ft long x 118 ft wide
    36 ft draft!
    we have 4 deck cranes, three with a 100 ton capacity and one with a 165 ton capacity
    we have a 42,848 bbl fuel tank (roughly 1.8 million gallons)
    we are capable of drilling wells in 10,000 ft of water with a rough well total depth of 40,000 ft.
    The 210 ft tall derrick is actually two derricks in one, the main one has a lifting capacity of 1,250,000 lbs while the aux one can lift 750,000 lbs.
    We can accommodate up to 210 workers out here at a time.

    That sounds awesome. Except for one thing. No beer on board, right?
