Autronica To Supply Fire/Gas Detection System For Rasmussen FPSO

A networked, intrinsically-safe, fire and gas detection system from Autronica Industrial Ltd. will be installed on the new FPSO being built in Japan for Rasmussen Offshore. The equipment will be integrated with the fire, gas and safety critical control systems architecture designed by U.K.- based systems supplier Silvertech, and is scheduled for installation by the end of September 1997, after the vessel reaches the U.K. for topside fitting in mid-1997.

This FPSO is being built to meet the fast growing demand for production facilities capable of working efficiently in the remote, deepwater oil and gas reservoir environments currently being opened in northern European waters. Autronica's system incorporates approximately 300 detectors, monitored by two BS-100 control panels.

Each analog smoke and heat sensor is individually monitored. This data is used to dynamically adjust the sensitivity of the alarm threshold to optimize protection and reduce system life cycle costs by allowing precise targeting of maintenance efforts.
