Performance Through Intelligence
The SeaONYX™ Surface Control System utilizes mission-critical SCADA technologies proven worldwide in power generation applications to improve BOP system uptime and reduce the challenges of system obsolescence management. Robust computing capabilities make SeaONYX the hub of GE’s other big data products that enable drillers to operate predictively.
SeaONYX's unique hot-swappable components enable the system to stay online durnig service, eliminating the need for the driller to suspend operations due to a BOP control system component outage. Keeping the BOP control system online keeps the driller in control of the well and reduces risks to rig personnel and the environment.
The distributed architecture of SeaONYX means the BOP control system can be upgraded throughout the life of the drillship or platform, ensuring the latest control technologies are always available. This reduces capital costs associated with replacing a BOP control system during the 30+ year lifespan of a drilling asset.
