ORCA 1500  Self Elevating Platform

Small "200 Class" liftboats are traditional to the Gulf of Mexico, where they serve as the workhorses of the shallow water well service industry. The ORCA 1500 self-propelled, self-elevating platform revisits this classic liftboat, adding modern operational and safety standards that assure this economical and versatile class of liftboats achieves the global reach and longevity it deserves.
