SDS’ modular design is flexible for rigging up the V-Door in either the X or Y axis position from well to well. It’s said to meet the strictest DOT load limitation. The system combines vertically erecting mast and hydraulic winch raised parallelogram substructure. The free standing mast can be supplied in Range 2 doubles or triples. The 1,000-hp triples and doubles masts are designed to transport as a single load with the traveling block and top drive. The 1,500-hp mast transports in two loads: Top Drive in the lower section; traveling block and drill line spooler in the Intermediate and upper section.
Among SDS features: all components requiring elevation are hydraulically raised. No cranes are required for either rigging up or down. Top Drive and traveling assembly travel in the mast. SDS’ diesel-powered hydraulic system is integrated into the lower substructure box to eliminate need for rig power during rig up or down.
