Yokogawa to Supply ICSS for Cygnus Offshore Development Project
Yokogawa Europe Solutions B.V. has been awarded a contract by GDF SUEZ E&P UK Ltd. to supply the integrated control and safety systems (ICSS) for its Cygnus Development Project.
The contract inducates that Yokogawa Europe will provide a full ICSS, including process control, process shutdown, emergency shutdown, fire & gas detection, process data historian and field device asset management.
The ICSS will feature Yokogawa's CENTUM VP process automation system, ProSafe-RS safety system, Exaquantum production management solution and PRM asset management package.
Yokogawa Europe will also provide an operator training system (OTS) utilizing the OmegaLand advanced operator simulation environment.
The ICSS will be distributed across the Cygnus complex. Production is expected to start from the new facilities in late 2015. The field is expected to meet demand for nearly one and a half million homes at peak production, accounting for around 5% of the UK's gas production.
The ICSS will provide fully integrated and seamless control and safety functions for the platforms along with a single interface allowing operators to start, control and monitor all facilities from a central control room. Asset management is another important issue; with its rich functionality, PRM will minimize maintenance costs and enable proactive instrument maintenance management. The OTS will be used not only for operator training, but also as an engineering tool to confirm changes in control strategy.
