Agreement to distribute wireless gas detectors

08 July 2014

At the recent European Yokogawa Users Conference, the company announced the signing of an agreement with GasSecure AS for the distribution of GasSecure’s ISA100 Wireless gas detectors.

The agreement gives Yokogawa access to GasSecure’s wireless gas detectors, strengthening its lineup of plant field wireless solutions and enhancing its support of health, safety, security, and environment management applications. This agreement will also allow GasSecure to gain access to Yokogawa’s global sales and service network and thereby boost the sales of its wireless gas detectors.

For some time, Yokogawa has been developing a range of ISA100 Wireless compliant technologies and devices such as wireless adapters that allow conventional wired devices to access wireless networks. 

GasSecure, meanwhile specialises in the development of low power, high reliability wireless gas detectors to monitor for hydrocarbon leaks on offshore platforms, tank farms and industrial plants.

Knut Sandven, CEO at GasSecure, explained that the growing need to improve plant safety by installing more gas detectors and replacing out of date detection systems has driven the demand for wireless gas detectors, which have the added advantage of eliminating the need for wiring. 

The agreement will allow Yokogawa to better satisfy its customers’ needs by incorporating wireless gas detectors in its field wireless system solutions. At the same time, GasSecure will be able to utilise Yokogawa’s global sales and service network to expand its wireless gas detector business. 

Also, under the terms of a separate sales agreement s reached earlier this year, GasSecure will also sell Yokogawa’s field wireless system devices together with its own gas detection systems.
