Semi-Submersible Drilling Rig - DE88

The K-Sim Engine Semi-Submersible Drilling Rig DE88 model is based on a dieselelectric semi-submersible drilling rig. The Model contains 8 Wärtsilä medium speedengines, each rated 5100 kW for power generation. The propulsion system is dieselelectric, and the engines are fitted with 11 kV generators supplying eight Azimuththrusters, each rated 4000 kW.

The control and automation systems include sophisticated power management,pump control and propulsion control. The main object for the simulator is to coverthe operation, system understanding and advantages of a diesel electric plant. Italso focuses on decision training, responding to abnormal and emergency situations that may occur on this kind of offshore plant. Control room operator panels aswell as steering panels are included.

Training objectives

The K-Sim Engine Semi-Submersible Drilling Rig DE88 model is designed to be avaluable tool in the basic and advanced training of marine engineers. The trainingobjectives are to train junior engineers in basic engine room operations, seniorengineers in emergency operations and trouble shooting, and to train senior andchief engineers in optimal operation, fuel economy and energy conservation. This isachieved by controlled training, leading to better understanding of the total plantoperation, as a result of realistic simulation of a real engine room.

Compliant with industry requirements

Kongsberg Digital simulator models exceed requirements in the STCW convention, Regulation 1/12 and fulfill DNV GL’s standard DNVGL-ST-0033 for MaritimeSimulator Systems
