Shipboard certification

CENTUM VP Lloyd's approval!
Lloyd’s Register, a world leading certification organization, has certified that Yokogawa Electric Corporation products comply with the ISO17894 standard on the shipboard use of programmable electronic systems, and are suitable for use on LNG carriers and floating production units. This certificate has been issued for the CENTUM® VP and CENTUM® CS 3000 integrated production control systems, which are the company's flagship products, and for the ProSafe®-RS safety instrumented system.

Safety and protecting the environment are primary concerns of owners and operators of ships and other floating vessels used in the oil and gas industry, so the products that they use must be reliable and of high quality. They tend to look for vendors of programmable electronic systems that comply with ISO17894. Yokogawa has a good track record in this sector, having received control systems orders for a total of 47 LNG carriers.

Encouraged by this certification of ISO17894 compliance, Yokogawa aims to expand its control business in the oil and gas marine sector by targeting growth segments such as LNG carriers and floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessels.
