Aker Solutions' drilling equipment simulators offers a unique opportunity to train personnel in rig specific and critical operations.
Training helps drillers operate the rig faster, and help them get back on track faster after crew change
The drilling equipment simulator (XfactorDES) is a multifunction 3D simulator that provides mathematically correct models of rigs. Each rig is meticulously recreated as a virtual asset, including all rig equipment and control systems. This offers the possibility of onshore training and detailed operational planning in virtual environments that are identical to those offshore.

IPort™ - integrated operations centre
The IPort™ centre comprises simulators, technological facilities and services on one integrated operations centre, contributing to project success. Visioneering refers to virtual engineering. Testing and optimisation in an in-house simulated environment results in thoroughly tested and fine tuned systems prior to on-site installation.
Improved results through virtual engineering ensures
- Optimised rig performance
- Reduced non-productive time
- Tested and proven systems
