Offshore.no TV broadcasts from workshop tests of the RDS Multi-Size Elevator.
The Multi-Size Elevator contains three different insert sizes that are exchanged automatically and can be configured as required to accomodate several different pipe and casing sizes. Thereby, manual shifts of insert are avoided and 5-10 minutes saved on each shift between pipe dimensions to be handled. The Multi-Size Elevator will be a part of the Robotic Drillfloor System or can be retro-fitted to conventional rigs.
