Installation & commissioning

Drilling derricks are typically installed in 2-3 sections. However, depending on crane capacity, it is possible to
install an entire derrick in one lift, which has been fully outfitted with all OEM equipment, electrical, mechanical and piping systems. This enables a 'plug and play' fast start-up and commissioning process. Drilling masts come in various forms and can be assembled ('rigged up') and installed rapidly.
