The Noble Globetrotter I (IMO: 9540845, Port of Registry: Monrovia, Liberia) is a drillship of 189 meters long and 32 meters wide. She is equipped with a Huisman's multi-purpose tower design with a drilling side and a pipe assembly side. The drill floor is located only 5 meters above main deck. This reduces sideways motions at the drill floor and considerably lowers the centre of gravity of the drilling equipment. The Globetrotter I is capable of drilling to a depth of 12,192 m and features a DP-3 station-keeping ability, 18,000 tons of variable deck load, and quarters for 180 personnel. She was built at STX Dalian Shipbuilding in 2011 and is owned by Noble Drilling U.S.
The Noble Globetrotter I arrived this morning at the Beneluxhaven, Europoort. She will stay in port for about two days.
