PPL Shipyard is a leading prime producer of drilling rigs in the world.

The company has its roots from the 70s when it was a tug building and chartering company. In the late 70s, it went into rig building and built 21 rigs during the rig building boom of the early 80s. The rigs include jack ups, semi-submersibles and submersibles.

Our History

In 1995 the company took over Baker Group that owned the successful designs of the BMC rigs. It also designs and builds its own jacking systems for the rigs.

Sembcorp Marine took up as 50 per cent equity stake in PPL Shipyard in 2001 and further increased its stake to 85 per cent in 2003.


PPL launched its Pacific Class 400 design in 2010 and delivered 11 units to date. The company will continue to increase its rig design, building and innovation solution capability.
