Control Room and Server Accessibility
Oil Drilling Platform, Europe
Extending Process Control
Due to the extremely high cost of offshore personnel, and the fact that there are strict limits to the number of people due to safety regulations, an oil drilling platform needed multiple industrial process computers to be safely located in a server room onshore, while still being accessible from 5 separate control rooms in various locations around the production facilities.
The setup required a specialist in process automation of industrial plants, with a focus on integrating DCS, SCADA/HMI and PLC solutions with remote IT management. Furthermore, in case of future operational expansion, the system needed to incorporate both point-to-point and multipoint-to-multipoint KVM extender connections.
To enable constant monitoring of industrial processes from control rooms and remote workstations
Selectively monitor attached process servers efficiently while maintaining high network security
Ability to expand maintenance and control operations by adding further surveillance workstations in the future
High connection flexibility means control room operators can access and maintain multiple servers while individual workstations can directly and securely monitor specific servers for targeted process control requirements.
