Fire & gas detection system for the Kittiwake oil platform

21 January 2014

Hima-Sella has been awarded a contract from oilfield services provider, Petrofac, for the provision of an upgraded fire and gas detection system for the Kittiwake oil and gas platform in the North Sea.

The system features a HIMA HIMax and incorporates a SIL 2-rated addressable controller. The overall project will also include the supply of new flame, smoke and gas detectors.
Eddy Turnock, Hima-Sella’s sales & marketing director, comments: “We’re delighted to have been awarded this prestigious contract and to be providing a fire and gas detection system that helps safeguard such an important platform.”
The HIMA HIMax is a programmable electronic system (PES) and, for the Kittiwake platform, it will be catering for an estimated 1,300 I/O, with scope for expansion. In addition, HIMax’s ‘NON STOP’ feature will allow changes to be made whilst the system is online and without interrupting processes on the platform.
For the majority of the fire and gas detection’s system, signal conditioning will be performed directly on HIMax’s I/O modules. Also, existing platform wiring will be used in combination with HIMA Field Terminal Assembly units which will be located in the equipment room on the platform.
