The Prospector 5 jackup drilling rig is towed by the offshore tug Maersk Lifter into Teessport on February 14, 2019 in Redcar, England.
A jackup rig is a vessel fitted with long support legs that can be raised or lowered. The jackup is then self-propelled or towed into location with its legs up and the hull floating on the water. Upon arrival at the work location, the legs are jacked down onto the seafloor.
