EFC completes jackup rig order

Instrumentation, monitoring, control and handling systems firm EFC Group has completed a £1.3million {$2.2million} contract to design and build a BOP and diverter control system for China based Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Offshore Co (DSIC Offshore).

The system is installed onboard DSIC’s new-build jackup drilling rig, JU2000E-13. DSIC is supplying the rig to drilling contractor Apexindo, where it will be known as Tasha. 

The BOP and diverter control system delivers a robust solution with central architecture on a fibre optic network. These systems are used to control the blowout preventer to seal, control and monitor the well and are critical for ensuring the safety of the crew, the rig, well integrity and the environment.

The EFC Group-designed system provides full functionality from two or more locations, typically local hydraulic control, drillers’ electric and toolpushers’ electric remote panels. A solenoid valve enclosure is included to provide an interface from the electric signals from the remote panel and provide pneumatic or piloted hydraulic signals to the BOP control actuators. A hydraulic power unit can be included as part of system supply, or it can be limited to hydraulic control skid only. 

Representatives from Apexindo visited EFC Group's base in Forres where the system was built during its Factory Acceptance Test (FAT).
