Rolling out the next Simulator Generation

Upstream magazine, 30 August 2002

MOST exploration rig managers will rarely experience the reality of a jack-up rig's leg punching through the sea bed, a semi-submersible losing a mooring line in a storm, or a ship colliding and causing structural damage.

However, with next week's inauguration of a million dollar multi-purpose marine simulator at drilling contractor Transocean's Aberdeen training centre, they will at least have a chance to get an idea of how it would feel, while remaining in the relative tranquility of a heaving cabin in an Aberdeen warehouse.

"As far as we know, this is the only simulator in the world that combines training in semisubmersible stability and jack-up operations along with emergency response in a single package" says Transocean's training manager Jim Finlay.
