Drilling drives system

ABB has long and extensive experience in engineering, fabrication and commissioning of offshore drilling drives. 

The drilling drive system

We take the responsibility for the complete system package which consists of the electrical system, system engineering and services. Our Drilling Drive System is completely modular and easily adapt to our customers' requirements.

ABB's drilling drives system consists of several parts: ABB ACS800 Multi-Drive Lineups, Braking Resistors, Motors, Remote I/O panels and an embedded control system. In the multi-drive several variable speed drives feeded from a common DC-bus provides the power and control to the drilling equipment motors. 

The embedded control system or ‘Drilling Drives Control’ is controlling, monitoring and protecting the drive lineup including supply, DC bus, and inverters. It interfaces to the drilling process and auxiliaries, the drilling control system, as well as the electrical power plant and power management system.
