Dockwise was selected for an HMT (Heavy Marine Transport) project with Noble Drilling. The Noble Jim Day, a semi-submersible with a deadweight of more than 41,000 metric tons, needed to dry transported. This project was completed by loading the Noble Jim Day onto the Blue Marlin in Singapore using the float-on method and discharging it using the float-off method in the Gulf of Mexico. With a length of more than 224 meters and a breadth of 63 meters, and a deadweight of more than 76,000 metric tons, the Blue Marlin was easily able to accommodate the Noble Jim Day, which has an overall length of approximately 135 meters and a breadth of more than 86 meters.
