For over 20 years Drilling Systems has supplied full size, rig floor, drilling and well control simulators around the globe. These simulators meet the training requirements of Operators, Drilling Contractors, Service Companies, Training Schools and University Petroleum Engineering Schools. The units have been used in both onshore and offshore operational environments  as well as for IADC WellCAP and IWCF accreditation. Over the years new rig technology has been introduced to the industry which has driven the demand for new training solutions. To meet these current modern rig requirements associated with more modern rig designs, the DrillSIM-5000 CyberSIM and the DrillSIM-5000 CyberChair have been added to the range. These offer a gradual transition towards the very modern Advanced Rig technology (ART) rigs with semi or fully automated drilling packages with integrated rig control, anti-collision and zone management systems. The operator training simulators for these ART rigs are provided through the DrillSIM-6x series solutions.

The DrillSIM-6000, DrillSIM-600 and DrillSIM-60 Advanced Rig Technology (“ART”) Training simulators provide a customer specific, geometrically precise, 3D visual world of a modern day mechanized rig environment, integrated with the renowned DrillSIM downhole model. It uniquely enables drill crews to perform any pipe-handling, drilling or well control operation (to IADC WellCAP and IWCF standards) and experience the integration of the rig’s equipment prior to working in the field, within a very real and comprehensive training environment.

The DrillSIM-600 (single chair) and DrillSIM-6000 (two or more chairs) solutions are the widely accepted industry tools that enable Drilling Contractors and Oilfield Operators to fully train and verify the skills needed by drill crews and supervisors.The 6x series units can model any number of cyber rigs (on the same simulator) by using an interchangeable plug and play pannier system, unique to the Drilling Systems Product Range for Pipe Handling and Offshore Crane Simulators.
