Why a UPS system is critical for continuous operation of drilling systems

A drillship is a merchant vessel with an adapted hull to allow deployment of the drill through the hull and designed for use in exploratory offshore drilling of new oil and gas wells or for scientific drilling purposes.

These vessels are equipped with the latest and most advanced AC drilling drives powering applications for top drives, pumps and winches.

The high degree of automation of the control system situated on the drill floor ensures safe operation and consistent performance however in the event of power failure to the drilling drives then an uninterruptible power back-up system is critical.

The UPS consisting of batteries immediately kicks-in to provide continuous and uninterrupted power until regular power is restored ensuring that there is no interruption to operations.
