The retrofit advanced M1000 RPD monitoring system provides an extremely fit for purpose, automated, real time management tool for safely and speedily lowering and positioning the legs of jack-up rigs in all types of seabed terrain. M1000 RPD also provides the operator with the corrective action to be taken to solve problems identified by the system and includes a fail-safe monitor that automatically shuts down the jack-up process if the operator does not respond fast enough to a warning signal.
Aware of the significant issues in safely lowering and positioning the legs of jack-up rigs in all types of lowering conditions, in 2009, Monitor Systems developed and installed an M1000 RPD on Transocean’s Magellan rig to provide the client with a safe, error free, automated jack-up control and management process. The system provides central and localised chord monitoring of critical data and operator response management aimed at eliminating the potential of serious structural damage and resulting safety implications during future jacking operations.
