Next Generation Offshore Iron Roughneck
Recognising the demand for improved efficiency, reduced downtime, and lowered maintenance costs, Atlantica Tender Drilling has partnered with Drillform Technical Services to replace their current make-up and break-out system.
Drillform’s Bulldog 130 Automated Floor Wrench (BD130) will be installed on Atlanticas’ Bass Drill Beta Semi-Submersible tender assist drill rig, currently drilling in deepwater offshore Brazil. “Drillform is looking forward to upgrading Atlantica’s make-up and break-out capabilities”, says Drillform President Todd McCorriston. “Our BD130 will integrate seamlessly into the Beta’s existing rig automation system, offering improved performance, reduced downtime, and radically simplified maintenance.”
BD Series Automated Floor Wrenches feature revolutionary 360-degree radial contact with the drill pipe, preventing slippage, tool joint wear, and pipe distortion. The automated make-up and break-out cycle ensures accurate torque on each connection and reduces the risk of drill string failure. The result is lower operational costs, higher uptime, and simplified maintenance.
