Aker Solutions offers electrical Wirth drawworks concepts in classic or premium lines providing some of the most advanced drawworks in the industry.
Innovation of drilling efficiency
- Gear driven design
- With AC or DC main drive configuration
- Short or long version to suit every drill floor layout
- Supplied with all necessary control systems
Gear driven design results in high performance, high availability, lower weight and less noise and vibration.
The state-of-the-art gear-driven drawworks technology is supplied to the oil industry for either on or offshore applications.
Features of the electrical Wirth drawworks include improved safety, optimal performance and control, significant weight reduction and increased reliability.
By combining the different performance characteristics of the dynamic brake and a regenerative brake via the drive motors with an intelligent, automated drawworks control system, Aker Solutions provides a standard of performance and safety that is hard to achieve with a chain-driven drawworks.
In 2011 Aker Solutions opened a test facility in Erkelenz, Germany, which enables us to test new products at site. The test rig offers an unrivalled capacity of up to 500t for dynamic load operations. This means that the time spent on commissioning at the yard is shortened, which again reduces risk and cost.
