Aker SolutionsDrilling TechnologiesHoisting systemsMH RamRigMH RamRig represents state-of-the-art technologywith a well proven and successful operational trackrecord since 1998. It can be applied to fixed andfloating drilling platforms. The concept’s inherentfeatures make it especially competitive on deepwaterrigs. The concept is available with single, double ortriple stand rigs with capacities delivered from 150 to1,000 tons, and can easily meet future demands forhigher hoisting capacity and setback capacity.The MH RamRig solutions have successfully operatedin international waters. This opens for drilling in harshenvironment and in ultra deep water areas. To operatein arctic waters it can be designed as winterised.A dual MH RamRig is the ultimate deep water rig.This rig provides dual rig functionality at a lower totaloperational cost than a comparable conventional dualrig solution.• Safety, fingerboard at drillfloor level. Less overheadoperations• Documented lower weight, reduced spacerequirements and improved safety compared toconventional drilling packages• Lower centre of gravity increases variable deck load(VDL) capacity• Highly flexible and accurate integrated long strokeactive/passive heave compensation and stateof-the-artcontrol systems, improved operationalefficiency• The impressive accuracy and built-in automateddrilling function results in a smoother well path, lessweight on bit (WOB) variations and optimisation ofthe rate of penetration (ROP)• No drawworks, considerably increased brakingcapacity and minimal risk of dropping the BOP/riser.Drillfloor and substructureDue to its unique design, tubulars on the MH RamRigare racked vertically from drill floor to lower setback,saving valuable deck space without reducing the rig’sdrilling capacities. The concept is therefore ideal fordeepwater operations. The vertical racking of tubularshas the following main advantages:• All pipe handling functions are independent of thehoisting operations• Opening and closing of the elevator always takesplace at drill floor level, not at high level in thederrick• Simplified equipment for horizontal to vertical pipehandling• Reduced possibility of dropping objectsThe elevated drill floor also enables a very efficientand safe working environment for handling BOP andsubsea equipment.> Dual MH RamRig


Aker SolutionsDrilling TechnologiesHoisting systemsMH RamRigThe rams, or cylinders, are of the same type as thoseused in the well known MH crown compensators.The cylinders are coated with a non-corrodible anddurable ceramic layer extending the operating lifetimeof the cylinders. The rams have a noncontact positionmeasurement system with an accuracy of 1/100 mm.Key componentsThe hoisting system on the MH RamRig consistsof two or more cylinders (depending on capacityrequirements) instead of the conventional drawworksand derrick. The hoisting lines are of fixed length,parallel lines with one end anchored at the drill floor,the other end at the top drive. The lines are run overthe yoke sheaves, thereby transforming the push fromthe rams to upward lifting the force to the top drive.Subsequently, the travelling distance and speed ofthe top drive is double the stroking of the rams. Thestroking velocity of the rams is maximum 1 m/s (3.3ft/s), which gives 2 m/s (6.6 ft/s) travelling speed forthe top drive.Ram guidesThe ram guides replace the derrick or mast used ina conventional drilling set-up, and are built for thepurpose of guiding only, not for lifting. As the loadis taken by the drill floor structure, and not from thetop of a derrick structure, the MH RamRig conceptprovides a lower weight and center of gravity. Withramguides installed, there is no need for crown blockor travelling block.Hydraulic systemThe hydraulic system is used to power the hoisting,lowering and heave compensation operations. Thesystem is comprised of a number of hydraulic pumps(normally 8) driven by diesel engines or constantspeed AC motors, hydraulic reservoir, valves for modeselection and nitrogen accumulators. The system ishighly flexible and redundant in configuration. Theheave compensation system has three modes ofoperation. In passive mode, the nitrogen bottles aredirectly connected to the rams. In this mode, thesystem may operate continuously without the use ofelectric power. In semi-active mode, nitrogen bottlesand the hydraulic system work together to reducesystem friction. In the truly active mode, the hydraulicsystem is used to compensate for the heave.Equaliser assemblyThe equaliser assembly at drillfloor level absorbsuneven wire stretch and ensures even load stress ofthe wires during their lifetime.> Dual MH RamRig
