New Multi-purpose simulator contract from ABB

Hydrocarbons | August 2018

CORYS has received an order from ABB Norway to modify the topside simulator of the Mærsk Inspirer jack-up rig for the Repsol-operated Yme oilfield offshore Norway.

Originally built in 2007, Mærsk Inspirer production module has had 10 years of successful operations for Statoil on the Volve field. CORYS delivered a high fidelity simulator for operator training and ICSS virtual commissioning before start-up in 2006.

The process model will be modified, adapted to operations on Yme, upgraded to latest simulation technology and linked to ABB 800xA control & safety system.

Following the modifications work on the module, Mærsk Inspirer will operate for 5-10 years at the Yme field for Repsol.
