Excellence in Automation Winner.

EnQuest UK has won the 2021 ISA100 Wireless Excellence in Automation award, joining a list of distinguished end users which include Fuji Oil Company, Ltd.; ILBOC; BAPCO; Alcoa; Phillips 66; PETRONAS; and Nippon Steele & Sumikin Engineering.

Each year, the ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute (WCI) presents the ISA100 Wireless Excellence in Automation Award to a global end-user company that has demonstrated outstanding leadership and innovation with ISA100 Wireless technology. This award was presented to EnQuest UK for leadership and creativity in the design and implementation of ISA100 Wireless Applications for Safe Gas Detection.

Join ISA on August 17th, 2022, at 11 AM ET for a live webinar where we will be presenting this exciting case study, “A new approach to gas detection - Achieving a safe and secure system upgrade on a vast scale.” Register here.

Draeger have designed and implemented, in collaboration with EnQuest UK, the largest ISA100 Wireless gas detection system in Britain, one of the largest in the world, at the EnQuest UK-operated Sullom Voe (Shetland Islands, Scotland) Terminal. The system includes 122 Wireless gas detectors and employs dual redundancy, retaining complete safe gas detection coverage following any component failure.

The ISA100 Wireless system represents an estimated 70-80% cost saving, confirmed by the customer, compared with a hard-wired gas detection system due to removal of the cost of extensive civil ground works and above ground cable containment at a site covering 640 acres/2.6sq/kms. This is the first British site where Wireless gas detection is the dominant technology, present on an original late 1970’s processing plant, covering a large geographical area with limited field cabling availability. It represents a huge leap forward in terms of maintaining high safety standards with reduced costs. Wireless gas detection solves a problem SVT had been wrestling with, justifying a large capex spend project on an ageing limited life asset. The system was interfaced direct to the site’s distributed control system (DCS) for operator and emergency response alarm interface.
