Cabin design
International standards and regulations
This is some of the international standards and regulations being used as a
basic during design of a cabin.
Norsok S-001, Technical Safety
Norsok S-002, Working Environment
SAM regulations, NPD
IEC, Area Classification
EN 292-1, Safety of machinery – Basic concepts, general principles for design
EN 547-/1/2/3, Safety of machinery – Human body measurements
EN 614-1, Safety of machinery – Ergonomic design principles
EN 626, Safety of machinery – Hazardous substances
EN 1005, Safety of machinery – Human physical performance
EN 1050, Safety of machinery - Risk assessment
ISO 2631-1, Evaluation of human exposure to whole body vibrations
ISO 5349, Guidelines for measurement and assessment of human body
exposure to hand transmitted vibration
ISO 6385, Ergonomic principles in design of work systems
Many years experiance and knowledge of the operation.
Cabin design
Layout of the rig/vessel
Basic for Cabin size, layout and location:
Detailed Drill Floor drawing showing location of the Drill
Floor equipment.
Detailed drawings of the Derrick structure and location
of Derrick mounted equipment.
Detailed drawing of the Drill Floor surrounding and
equipment to be controlled from the cabin outside the
Drill Floor area.
Escape routes from Drill Floor.
Area classification.
Line of sight study
Cabin design
Type of equipment to control
How many operators in the cabin:
Number of equipment to be operated at the
same time.
The complexity of the equipment to be
operated, manual or automatic operation.
The location of the equipment to be operated
from the cabin.

Type of operation from the cabin
Internal design of the cabin:
Main operator station, X-COM
Auxilliary operator stations, BOP panel, Choke
panel etc.
Viewer station for 3rd party personal.
Work desk for office duties.
Interface cabinets
Communication equipment
Cabin design
Design specification from the client
Special design criteria from the client
Inside climate, temperature range and
Outside climate, temperature range and
Internal noise level
Area classification
Cabin design
Clients budget
Allways to low!
Cabin design
Cabin design
Thorough knowledge of the Drill Floor and Derrick layout:
Using drawings and 3D models as a basic during outline design of the
Cabin including location of the cabin and line of sight study.
Escape routes
Area specification
Thorough knowledge of the equipment to be controlled from the
cabin and the operation:
Number of X-COM operator stations
Auxilliary operator stations
Internal arrangement in the cabin
Enviromental criteria:
Heating, cooling and ventilation
Cabin design
Cabin design
Cabin external design:
Cabin material, stainless steel or painted carbon steel.
Interface to Drill Floor, vibration dampers.
Large sunfiltered laminated safety glass with protection grid.
Safe access to Cabin Roof.
Window wiper and washer system.
Cabin internal design:
Selected colours on the interior, walls, ceiling and floor.
Optimized location of the X-COM main operator stations for integrated operation.
Noise insulation in walls, ceiling, roof and windows for best possible noise level.
Ceiling light seperated in induvidual zones for best possible light conditions in
different operations.
Easy accessible communication equipment
Cabin design
X-COM operator station
An X-COM may be used to control any
process or machinery.
Ergonomically designed for 24/7
Totally flexible and expandable.
Smaller footprint and lower cost of
Safer and easier to operate, as the
controls and information for a given
working process are emphasized and
optimized, far beyond the possibilities
available with traditional control and
information components.
Reduced commissioning cost – software
is tested before installation.
Compact, ergonomic and standardized to
With two X-COM`s installed they become
fully redundant.
Perfect for crew training by loading
simulation software.
