all 4 one four areas of rig inspection

ADC’s Major Clients have categorised their main priorities when drilling in deep water to be well control and station keeping.

Typical Dynamic Positioning (DP) Inspection companies, including ADC, offer DP Trials and Failure Modes Effects Analysis (FMEA) services which focus upon the DP and Power Management (PM) Systems and go through extensive testing of software, electronics, wire breaks and sensor failures within the various parts of the overall DP and PM systems.

Traditionally, our clients have relied only on the 3rd party witness of DP FMEA proving Trials which provided a brief snapshot of DP performance for that moment in time but in, our opinion, did not consider the wider reliance on various subsystems which affect station keeping ability.

ADC consider that whilst 3rd party witness of DP FMEA proving Trials is important, our approach can add value by assessing the condition of all safety critical elements of DP equipment within the rig inspection process. Utilising the All4One approach control system, mechanical and electrical engineers work together to create a comprehensive and balanced evaluation of the DP, PMS and related sub systems.

All ADC DP Consultants are fully trained by Kongsberg in the inspection of K-Chief Vessel Management and Power Management Systems and in the Audit of Kongsberg DP systems, including the latest position reference system technologies including Hydro Acoustics, Differential Global Navigation Systems and Inertial Navigation.

Mechanical engineers inspect and test the engines and thruster bay equipment, including steering systems, hydraulic pumps, cooling and fire suppression systems and review maintenance records, oil samples and vibration monitoring analysis.

Electrical engineers inspect the condition of generators, switchboards, UPS, fire detection systems and drive systems in addition to review of maintenance records, thermographic inspection and resistance and insulation checks.

The combined effect of this methodology is to provide a much more comprehensive evaluation of station keeping ability based on the evaluation of all safety critical equipment.

ADC OFFERS THE FOLLOWING DP SERVICES:

  • DP and PMS audit as part of rig selection
  • DP and PMS trials as part of rig acceptance
  • DP Annual and proving trials
