Consilium has launched a new web-based service for ship-to-shore transfer and playback of ship voyage data. The first order for this new Remote Playback service comes from Stena Line Scandinavia AB, following a period of close cooperation.

Consilium is one of the major suppliers of Voyage Data Recorders (VDR) for ships. Remote Playback is an add-on service for the VDR that allows selected data – from all kinds of ship systems – to be securely transferred from vessels to shore and easily replayed and reviewed by ship management and safety departments.

All steps in the data transfer and playback are integrated seamlessly in one single web application. It is now easier than ever for ship management and safety departments to review and learn from incidents and near-misses and continuously having access to important information for the entire fleet.

The communication link is based on standardized web protocols with encryption, making it both secure and easy for customers to incorporate Remote Playback in the existing IT infrastructure. In addition to this, a firewall adds an extra layer of protection, and for the on-shore users, a two-step login procedure further strengthens the security of the service.
 
The choice of modern web technology makes the service cost-efficient, flexible and scalable. It is easy to access the service from any computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. The service can easily be adapted according to the customer’s needs, and it is easy to add more vessels or more data resources when needed. Remote Playback also offers the possibility to set up notifications that are sent to the user via email or SMS upon selected trigger events.

Once a vessel is equipped with the hardware unit that enables Remote Playback, Consilium can also offer remote diagnostics of the VDR, for example to prepare for planned service visits or to guide the on-board crew remotely on how to trouble-shoot and even solve minor issues with connected systems. Although optimized for Consilium VDR’s, Remote Playback can be enabled for any vessel (regardless of the VDR brand on board) thanks to interface adaption kits.

“Consilium has invested in a strong global service and support organization, as well as in supporting global IT systems, to enable us to provide world best daily service and support for our customers. We offer cost-efficient retrofit solutions. Remote Playback is a cost-efficient ship management tool that further strengthens the range of services we can offer to our customers”, says Ove Hansson, President and CEO.

Consilium has together with the system integrator Goodtech finished the first system in the fire detection retrofit project on Wintershall’s production platform, Brage.

Consilium has installed the fire detection system on the Brage platform. An important demand from Wintershall was that neither production nor security should be affected during the installation. Consilium met these demands with great success and used existing infrastructure to make this a very efficient retrofit.

Consilium has an innovative modular approach which makes it possible to replace an existing fire detection system simply by building it into an existing offshore cabinet. Consilium reuses existing communication links with top systems and by this they can eliminate the need to do changes to the safety system. This gives a high reduction in both costs and space.

“Together with the suppliers Consilium and Goodtech, Wintershall have successfully upgraded and put into operation the first of two fire centrals on Brage. It is important that the supply chain are able to challenge existing solutions, as well as delivering quality in every step of the project execution. So far Wintershall is very pleased with the new solution and are looking forward to having the complete system up and running in the near future.” Gøran Solsvik, Project Leader Modifications, Wintershall Norge AS

In 2015, Consilium launched its new CFD5000 fire detection system for offshore and transport applications. Since February 19, 2016, the system has also been SIL 2 certified by TÜV NORD according to IEC 61508.

Market‐driven development
In many parts of the world, the offshore industry demands SIL 2 certified fire detection systems. One example is the Norwegian market, where Consilium recently opened an office in the “oil capital” Stavanger. “The SIL 2 certification of CFD5000 opens up new sales opportunities for us,” says Patrik Saethe, Quality & Safety Manager at Consilium. “You need to prove a certain level of safety to succeed, and now we have that proof in place.” Consilium started to develop CFD5000 in January 2013 and SIL 2 certification was on the agenda from the start.

Safety is a safe investment
CFD5000 is based on the reliable Consilium Common Platform (CCP) with additional hardware and software to meet SIL 2 requirements both in the offshore industry and the European train market. CFD5000 meets new building and retrofit requirements. It is possible to interface CFD5000 with existing Consilium CCP‐based fire detection systems and implement SIL 2 in steps, or design a new system with different safety levels. CFD5000 is designed for long proof test intervals, cutting down on time and costs for testing. The new UNI‐detector generation is programmable and therefore only comes in two versions – for non‐explosive and explosive environments. This reduces time and money spent on logistics, spare parts orders and stock keeping.

PRESS RELEASE 16-10-2015

Consilium opens office in Norway's "oil capital" Stavanger for the marketing of fire detection systems to the offshore industry in Norway. Consilium is also launching a newly developed fire detection system according to the SIL 2 standard, specifically designed for offshore applications.

Consilium opens office in the Norwegian city of Stavanger as part of its focus on fire detection systems for the offshore industry. Stavanger is a base for the Norwegian oil industry and proximity to customers therefore make the city a natural choice for Consilium to establish themselves in. The establishment will initially be supported by Consilium's offices in Oslo and Gothenburg. As operations in Stavanger develop, the idea is that it will include sales as well as project management, service and support.

- The offshore industry is an interesting market for Consilium to develop. Despite the temporary downturn in the offshore industry we see that Consiliums solutions, that are flexible and possible to escalate, can create value for the operators. Norway has some of the most stringent requirements in the world within the offshore sector. By establishing ourselves here, we demonstrate that we meet high quality and safety requirements, says Trygve Andersen, Managing Director of Consilium Norway A/S.

Fire detection systems according to SIL 2 standard
Consilium is one of the world's leading suppliers of fire detection systems for marine environments. The company has spent several years developing a new fire detection system, CFD 5000, designed specifically for offshore applications, such as oil platforms, refineries and floating support units. The fire detection is designed to meet high demands for reliability and quality. It is in the final phase of its SIL 2 certification and hardware as well as software is developed in close cooperation with the certification body TÜV NORD.

In addition to high reliability and quality the fire detection is designed to be cost effective in both the deployment and operational phases. This allows Consilium to support the oil industry's efforts to reduce its costs.

- When installing our fire detection, it is possible to use the existing cable installation in the object where the installation will take place, which could mean significant cost reductions. The high quality of our fire detection system also makes it possible to extend the interval for the mandatory testing of the system that needs to be carried out regularly, which also means cost savings, says Trygve Andersen.
