Innovation. Experience. Custom solutions.
The offshore industry has evolved through the years, but one thing has remained constant: Friede & Goldman is the world’s leading independent designer of mobile offshore drilling units, drawing on over 70 years of unparalleled innovation and expertise.
Proven track record.
More than 270 F&G-designed offshore rigs and vessels have been built and delivered worldwide.
From Friede & Goldman’s innovative L-780 series in the 1980s to the industry-favored 400-ft water depth JU-2000Es of the last build cycle, our track record — 123 F&G-designed jack-ups built to date — speaks for itself.
We’ve got renewable energy covered as well, with our vast knowledge and proven technology extending to offshore wind farms. Take, for example, our superior leg and pinion wear technology as demonstrated on DEME’s Innovation. Our design portfolio now includes a suite of innovative wind turbine installation vessels, floating wind turbines, and US Jones Act feeder vessel solutions that enhance the safety and efficiency of the turbine installation process while decreasing costs.
Our unparalleled semi-submersible success dates all the way back to the 1970s with nearly 50 of our reliable, world-class Pacesetter and Trendsetter designs built over three decades.
During the latest oil and gas building cycle, this offshore vessel design success was carried over to our popular ExD class.
The DS3810 is designed for unprecedented mission flexibility: 40,000 ft wells in up to 12,500 ft of water with 90 days autonomy yields the ultimate drillship for remote environments.
World-class team. Unparalleled service.
Our strong team of experts delivers world-class engineering and equipment services through the unique combination of experience, talent, integration of a broad range of engineering disciplines, and excellent communication between designer, owner, and builder.
Whether the need is a completely customized WTIV or a solution to a specific problem, our engineers pride themselves in providing the best service in the offshore industry with solutions easily implemented in shipyards worldwide. Our experience and expertise include structural, naval architecture, mechanical, and electrical engineering.
Our products group provides customized and cost-effective solutions for the offshore industry ranging from legacy components, such as jacking and rack chock systems, to more tailor-made solutions such as vertical riser fingerboards and simultaneous pipe handling systems.
