Aibel AS of Norway chooses Tideland Signal to supply Syncrolan LED light stations for the new Gudrun North Sea development.

The Tideland LED warning systems to be installed on the Gudrun platform comprise a main Syncrolan light station with a range of 15 NM, two subsidiary lights, battery banks, a central alarm and monitor panel and intermediate structures.

All the principal equipment is ATEX certified for use in Zone 1 (Cat 2) hazardous areas. Tideland's Syncrolan light stations combine an MLED-180-HI EX main light and a MLED-150 EX secondary light wired to an Exe junction box and mounted on a stainless steel pedestal.

The subsidiary beacons are Tideland MLED-150 EX units with a range of 10NM, also wired to an Exe junction box and mounted on a stainless steel bracket. Tideland’s MLED-180Hi and MLED-150 lantern offers minimal maintenance requirements and an expected service life in excess of twenty five years on station in the most demanding environments.

Long-life LEDs and high-integrity electronics are employed to maximise reliability and minimise maintenance.

Gudrun is located in the central Norwegian North Sea, about 55 kilometres north of Sleipner A, to which it will transport partially stabilised oil and gas.

Founded in 1954, Tideland Signal Corporation is committed to meeting and exceeding the requirements for marine aids to navigation to the maritime industry.
