How Rolloos Used OSIsoft’s Edge Data Store to Improve Safety on Offshore Rigs
Offshore drilling is a complex and dangerous process, and ensuring employee safety in the middle of the sea on a drill rig is a top priority. Operators driving the driller rely solely on a visual confirmation from ground crews while moving drill pipes. Between numerous personnel, heavy equipment, and 30-foot drill pipes, the drill rig is a dynamic environment that’s ripe for accidents. After a safety incident involving a drill pipe striking a crew member, a client reached out to Rolloos, an OSIsoft partner, for help. To enable its client to mitigate accidents and know where team members are at all times, Rolloos turned its CCTV technology into a comprehensive red zone detection system. By piloting OSIsoft’s Edge Data Store (EDS) technology, Rolloos ensured that all data was accessible by offshore operators for immediate decision support and could be streamed onshore for further retrospective analysis. Not only did this enable real-time monitoring of both people and heavy machinery, data is now used to optimize processes and improve overall performance.
