In an operation that spanned over 3 days, Salvo Grima was contracted to offload and store 1,948 tons/3,266 cubic meters of rig equipment at our facilities at the Malta Freeport. The rig equipment consisting of 77 individual pieces of Risers and Pups was brought to Malta by ship from Turkey and will remain in storage for several weeks pending the relocation and rig move from Turkey to the Rigs’ next drilling location.  The decision to store the equipment in Malta was based on the excellent facilities as well as the shipping connections to most major ports worldwide.

Furthermore, the storage of the equipment is in a dedicated zone free from customs duties and formalities.
