A semi-submersible drilling platform from China Merchant Heavy Industry SHEN LAN TAN SUO has become the world’s first offshore unit to receive DNV’s Smart notation compliance certificate. The voluntary Smart vessel notation from DNV, provides a framework for assessing and visualizing digital vessel features and shows that a vessel is utilizing enhancements that improve operations, efficiency, and reduced environmental impacts.
The Smart notation demonstrates that the data collection infrastructure of SHEN LAN TAN SUO, and its ability to ensure reliable and safe data collection from multiple systems onboard has been subject to quality assurance from an independent third party. The rig has also been awarded the qualifiers D-INF(P) for data-driven verification processes, and EEN, which recognizes solutions that provide improved energyefficiency and reduced harmful emissions, focusing on technologies that are considered cost, energy and emission-efficient for the operation of the vessel.
The CM-SD1000 platform uses the R6 mooring system, with a maximum of 12 mooring points and an ultra-high strength anchor chain. It can be quickly laid in up to 800 meters of water and adapt to global sea operations. The platform utilizes an integrated multi-functional drilling system, which can improve the efficiency of conventional drilling equipment by nearly 30%. It is also equipped with a new independently developed intelligent operation and maintenance system, which can collect data on the operating status of the rig in real-time.
