Consilium has received the order from the system integrator Goodtech to retrofit the existing fire detection system on the Brage oil production platform in the North Sea. The owner of the production platform is Wintershall. Consilium will install its new SIL 2 CFD5000 system, developed by Consilium for the last three years for the oil & gas industry.

Goodtech will as the system integrator share knowledge and experience with Consilium. Goodtech becomes the first integrator to be trained and certified for Consilium CFD5000 system. Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) of the system will be performed in Goodtech's test laboratory.

This project has a high focus on costs and reuse, while there is a full focus on safety. Consilium will install two fire detection systems on 10 floors, under normal operating conditions on the platform. In this retrofit project Consilium will use existing infrastructure and also reuse and minimizing updates to the documentation.

"This is an important milestone for the Consilium and our SIL 2 project, after several years of heavy investment and dedicated work of our departments of R&D, quality, sales & marketing, project, production and other relevant functions. Each step of the project will be followed closely by Consilium, to ensure a successful delivery in compliance with quality and safety, "said Ove Hansson, CEO.
