After Samsung Heavy Industries in Geoje, South Korea constructed the platform hull, it was then transported to Kiewit Offshore Services yard in Ingleside, Texas for the lift and integration of the topside modules. Underwater Services was contracted by Kiewit for several projects while the platform was at the yard. The projects included in-water inspection of the hull for marine growth, video surveying, valve testing, caviblast cleaning of porches, and positioning of the jack-up rig lasting from March to late September 2014.
