RAS Rig Upgrade

The scope of the project was to safely remove 4 x existing winch units and replace them with 3 new units as well as upgrading the full control system to incorporate variable speed drives.

The existing units were housed in 2 open sided shelters on each side of the rig. The existing equipment had to be made safe and isolated electrically, prior to carrying out removal.

MWD provided a full turnkey service, from safe removal of the old equipment, through to the supply and installation of the new units including commissioning and testing.

On completion full operational instruction manuals and installation certification was provided to the customer. The customer followed up by ordering a full set of on-site spares for the project.
