Drillship Solves Power Challenge and Saves Big
Working in conjunction with Jasper Offshore’s consultant and a local system integrator, SEL designed and implemented a communications and automation solution that provides the ship’s DP system with critical power plant information in real time, enabling the Jasper Explorer’s crew to make correct decisions regarding how much power is needed to run the thrusters in varying conditions.
With the SEL solution, the Jasper Explorer can now operate at full capacity, increasing productivity and saving fuel and maintenance costs. The Jasper Explorer was able to increase their power output by 40% and avoid the expense of a major overhaul. The cost for the system improvements was recovered in less than one day of operation.
