Built in Sweden, at the Arendal shipyard in 1982 it has been extensively refurbished and upgraded by Amilco since its acquisition in 2010.
The rig has an IMO number: 8752350 and is capable of operating in a max water depth of 1,200 ft and drill down to depths of 25,000ft. The WilPhoenix is fully UK compliant, with the Awilco Drilling company predominantly targeting the UK offshore energy sector with the WilPhoenix and its sister rig the WilHunter.

The WIlPhoenix Thermographic Survey is intended to begin in late April in the northern sector of the UKCS, with departure from NHV helicopters in Aberdeen. The survey will assist the rigs PM department, to improve uptime by identifying the early onset of electrical equipment failures before breakdowns and downtime occur.
