A key element on a modern drilling rig is the control system. Aker Solutions is one of the largest suppliers of state-of-the-art drilling control and monitoring systems.
Testing and training
In order to reduce testing time on site, and ensure timely delivery, we integrate equipment tests with tests on the drilling control and monitoring systems and operator's chair.
Prior to testing on site, the drilling control monitoring system (MH DrillView) and operator's chair are tested in the laboratory by means of simulation. During this extensive testing, we give practical equipment training of the customer's operators and service personnel.
Get your rig connected.
MH DrillView integrates your drilling systems into one common control and monitoring centre.
The building blocks and main features of these systems are:
- Local equipment controls
- MH DrillView, data acquisition, presentation and control system
- MH configurable automatic drilling system
- Necessary computer hardware
- Drilling control cabins
MH operator chair
To enable active operator support, a fully integrated workstation with integrated closed circuit television station (MH CCTV) may be established in an onshore operation center.
The electronic tally book system keeps track of all items passing through the V-door, and it does not require any tagging of the pipe. The system uses the length measuring capabilities of the tubular feeding machine.
The MH DrillView system provides a user friendly interface for acquisition, logging, storage, distribution and display of drilling data, as well as set-up and remote control of drilling equipment. The MH DrillView integrates your drilling systems into one common control and monitoring centre.
The MH CCTV system gives an overview of the operation being performed and the area of operation. The drilling cameras of the CCTV system support the drilling operator in safe operation of the machines and give live TV picture coverage of the critical functions in the drilling sequence.
MH robotic motion control
Making it possible to move large machines safely and efficiently using a joystick handle. The MH robotic motion control moves the machines along paths.
