ABB System 800xA safety libraries achieve SIL 2/3 certification
WICKLIFFE, Ohio, –- ABB announced today that a number of its System 800xA High Integrity safety applications have received SIL 2/3 certification from exida Certification SA, an independent third-party firm that offers functional safety certification and consultation. This certification designates that these applications, designed for the specific process safety needs of upstream (exploration and production) oil and gas customers, meet the highest industry standards for reliability and safety and can operate under the broadest range of conditions.
The recently certified applications, called OGP (oil, gas and petrochemical) REUSE solutions, provide specific key process protection functions for upstream processes for oil, gas and petrochemical. They provide the foundation for critical solutions such as process shutdown (PSD), fire and gas (F&G) and emergency shutdown (ESD) applications on the System 800xA AC 800M HI Controller. System 800xA High Integrity already had the highest certification for its standard safety applications and hardware.
ABB’s OGP REUSE Solutions have been deployed and field proven in numerous installations over the years, including on StatoilHydro’s Grane offshore oil production platform in the North Sea.
This SIL 3-rated Safety Instrumented System (SIS) provides the highest level of integration of safety and control on the market today. The newest version of System 800xA High Integrity was recently installed to control emergency shut down applications on StatoilHydro’s Troll A offshore gas production platform, 70 km off the coast of Norway.
