Consilium Increases Focus on Offshore Industry

Consilium opens office in Norway's "oil capital" Stavanger for the marketing of fire detection systems to the offshore industry in Norway. Consilium is also launching a newly developed fire detection system according to the SIL 2 standard, specifically designed for offshore applications.

Consilium opens office in the Norwegian city of Stavanger as part of its focus on fire detection systems for the offshore industry. Stavanger is a base for the Norwegian oil industry and proximity to customers therefore make the city a natural choice for Consilium to establish themselves in. The establishment will initially be supported by Consilium's offices in Oslo and Gothenburg. As operations in Stavanger develop, the idea is that it will include sales as well as project management, service and support.

 

FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS

- The offshore industry is an interesting market for Consilium to develop. Despite the temporary downturn in the offshore industry we see that Consiliums solutions, that are flexible and possible to escalate, can create value for the operators. Norway has some of the most stringent requirements in the world within the offshore sector. By establishing ourselves here, we demonstrate that we meet high quality and safety requirements, says Trygve Andersen, Managing Director of Consilium Norway A/S.

 

FIRE DETECTION SYSTEMS ACCORDING TO SIL 2 STANDARD

Consilium is one of the world's leading suppliers of fire detection systems for marine environments. The company has spent several years developing a new fire detection system, CFD 5000, designed specifically for offshore applications, such as oil platforms, refineries and floating support units. The fire detection is designed to meet high demands for reliability and quality. It is in the final phase of its SIL 2 certification and hardware as well as software is developed in close cooperation with the certification body TÜV NORD.

In addition to high reliability and quality the fire detection is designed to be cost effective in both the deployment and operational phases. This allows Consilium to support the oil industry's efforts to reduce its costs.

- When installing our fire detection, it is possible to use the existing cable installation in the object where the installation will take place, which could mean significant cost reductions. The high quality of our fire detection system also makes it possible to extend the interval for the mandatory testing of the system that needs to be carried out regularly, which also means cost savings, says Trygve Andersen.
