ITC completes Shelf Drilling fleet transition

June 17, 2015

ITC Global completed installation and commissioning of communications systems for 35 rigs in the Shelf Drilling, Ltd.’s fleet.

Shelf Drilling is the world’s second largest contractor of independent-leg cantilever jackup rigs. Headquartered in Dubai, Shelf Drilling has rig operations in 12 countries across four core operating regions – Southeast Asia, India, West Africa and MENAM (Middle East, North Africa & Mediterranean).

Following an August 2014 contract award, ITC Global outfitted Shelf Drilling’s globally dispersed rigs with a fully managed communications system custom designed to support corporate and crew communications via a TDMA private network solution. The transition of the entire 35-rig fleet was completed over a nine-month period.

"Our goal was to provide maximum flexibility for Shelf Drilling before, during and after deployment – both in terms of capacity and geographic coverage,” said Joe Spytek, CEO, ITC Global. “Our deployment team was able to migrate services from the incumbent in a short timeframe, minimizing downtime, and now that we’ve successfully completed the fleet transition, we’re seeing a significantly enhanced end-user experience on the rigs.”
