Is it necessary with one detector type for each smoke and heat category in the Oil & Gas sector? Some years ago we decided to challenge the ordinary. The result is the UNI-detector – the world’s first detector you can program for different fire detection tasks. Time and time again.  

One is enough
Platform-based thinking is nothing new. Just take a look at the automotive industry, where one frame can form the basis for many types of cars. The UNI-detector is inspired by this way of thinking. The hardware stays the same, but the software is interchangeable.

Having a programmable detector gives you many benefits. You don’t need to spend time on finding one detector for each task. You can reduce stocking of spare parts to a minimum. And you speed up the installation time as all detectors are identical. 

Just program the UNI-detector to detect what you want it to. That’s all.  

Works all the way
The flexible design of the UNI-detector is part of Consilium’s approach to developing flexible systems. Our Consilium Common Platform (CCP) is modular-based, giving you the freedom to build a fire detection system for any oil and gas facility. You can design a system with different safety levels (up to SIL 2) and implement it in steps. The UNI-detector is available for non-explosive and explosive environments.

Talk safety with us
There are thousands of questions regarding fire safety in oil and gas facilities. But there are also thousands of answers. Talk safety with us - we are ready when you are.

Consilium has received a large order from Carnival Cruise Lines for a redundant solution of Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems (CEMS). The order contains 18 back-up analyzers for the current emission monitoring system from Consilium, and a yearly maintenance agreement.

Carnival Cruise Line is based in Miami, Florida, US, with a current fleet of 25 vessels, and is a subsidiary of Carnival Corporation & PLC, the world’s largest cruise line with more than 100 vessels in the entire fleet. By using Consilium CEMS, Carnival Cruise Lines complies with the IMO emission regulations.

Consilium CEMS, OPSIS M800, is a unique emission monitoring solution, which can monitor up to nine measuring points at the speed of light. It uses optical technique (DOAS), which means that it has no contact with the gas. Together with fiber optics, instead of heated sampling pipes, it offers a highly reliable and cost effective system, with proven performance and high uptime. As no sampling is required, both operations and maintenance are truly simplified.  

Consilium OPSIS M800 measures all relevant gases, such as NO, NO2, SO2, CO2, CO, NH3, CH4, with just one analyzer, and is easily updated to monitor additional gases by a simple software upgrade.

In 2015, Consilium Marine & Safety AB entered partnership with the charitable organization Mercy Ships. The partnership is now further enhanced by Consilium’s choice to contribute with volunteers to Mercy Ships’ hospital ship Africa Mercy, to work onboard for one month’s time.

Mercy Ships owns and operate the world’s largest civilian hospital ship that offers free medical care and education to some of the world’s poorest countries. Mercy Ships started in 1978 and has since then helped over 2.5 million people in more than 70 countries. Every year, around 1000 volunteers contribute to Mercy Ships’ vital work, from surgeons and nurses, to ship personnel and administrative staff.

Consilium now contributes volunteers by letting one of their employees go to the hospital ship to help in Mercy Ships work. Consilium’s ambition is to continue to encourage their employees to go to Mercy Ships’ floating hospital as volunteers, to assist in the work they do on-site. Many of Consilium’s employees feel strongly about Mercy Ships’ cause, and some are contributing as volunteers with various administrative duties here at home.

Lena Cesarino, who is the first in line from Consilium to visit Africa Mercy as a volunteer, will arrive in Cameroon at the end of October, and will be onboard Africa Mercy for one month. Lena will be working as an “Operations Assistant”, meaning she will, among other things, assist in the dining room and the café in different ways, and some housekeeping duties. ”I have been interested in volunteering for quite some time, but it wasn’t until I came across Mercy Ships that I felt like I had found my perfect match. Their cause really struck my heart. I admire how they not only operate in the countries they visit, but how they also focus on educating local medical personnel, in order for them to take on the job”, Lena says.

"We are very proud of Lena Cesarino, who takes further steps and strengthens our partnership with Mercy Ships even more, which also takes our social responsibility to new levels. We hope that this will be the start of many more volunteers from Consilium onboard Mercy Ships", says Nicklas Bergström, President at Consilium Marine & Safety.

speed log timeline

Back in 1912, Svenska Aktiebolaget Logg was among the first to launch a mechanical speed log, SAL 12. It measured speed through water, based on the Pitot tube principle. It was first installed on the merchant ship S/S Hyperion and was quickly proven to give reliable results and was immediately demonstrated for the Royal Swedish Navy. Two years later the first SAL log was delivered to the Royal Swedish Navy.

Over the years, Consilium has presented new types of speed logs and developed the existing ones, and along the line we have presented new features. In 1972, our first generation of acoustic speed log was launched and the speed logs that we market today are based on the same principle, which has proven to be a reliable solution for vessels of various sizes.

Earlier this year, we presented our latest innovation, SAL R1a Easy Tank, the easiest speed log to install. It is the fourth generation acoustic correlation speed log, measuring relative speed – speed through water. The transducer mounting is a closed ended installation - no need for water tight compartment or piping above sea line.

Contact your local office today to learn more about our wide range of navigation products for your needs and requirements.

Consilium and DASPOS A/S have today agreed to cooperate regarding global sales, service and installation of the Daspos Leakage Alarm Systems.

Two thirds of all on-board fires start in the engine room. The Daspos Leakage Alarm System (LAS-10) detects atmospheric oil and gas leakages in engine rooms caused by undesirable leakage of fuel oils, hydraulic oils and other flammable liquids and gases within the maritime sector. The detection measure principle is based on unique sensor technology which is targeted at predicting a leakage in the engine room. The system is very reliable - no false alarms caused by human interference etc.

The Daspos Leakage Alarm System is a unique product within its field and is a strong complement to Consilium’s product portfolio within fire- and gas detection and will strengthen our offer to both ship owners and yards, says Marcus Andersson, Vice President Sales and After Sales with Consilium Marine & Safety.

The recent years have seen an ever-increasing use of digital ship-to-shore services in the maritime industry. This development has been enabled by advancements in Internet connectivity at sea driven by demands from onshore ship management as well as onboard crew. Being a rather young field, there are many different, co-existing approaches to meeting these demands.

Benefits of ship-to-shore solutions

Obviously, there are many reasons why you should jump on the wagon and explore how ship-to-shore services can increase operational efficiency and safety. Here are just a few reasons:

  • Decreased maintenance costs thanks to remote diagnostics and trouble-shooting.
  • Decreased workload of already stressed onboard personnel thanks to remote administration and reporting.
  • Easy access to recorded data from the ships for performance analysis.
  • Quick and easy analysis of incidents and accidents without frustrating delays and without handling of any physical storage media.
  • Minimized hazardous effect on crew, passengers, vessel, cargo and environment thanks to quicker insights into accidents and the possibility to take informed decisions at an early stage.
  • Increased safety by remote validation of navigational data in real time.
  • Immediate awareness of critical situations thanks to notifications by email or text messages if certain parameters are exceeded.

Important factors

Despite the many benefits there is still a lack of established standards for remote connectivity and ship-to-shore solutions. In fact, there are quite a few important factors to consider before you choose solution and the partner to provide you with that solution. Invest a few minutes and avoid the risk of wasting time and money on a solution that might not meet your needs.


How easy is it for you as a user to access the solution? Do you have to install various software programs on a dedicated PC or is it simply a matter of starting a web browser on your tablet or smartphone, for example while travelling? Are you relying on the ship to have an always-up, high-bandwidth ship-to-shore Internet connection, or does the solution allow you to be productive even when the ship cannot establish such a connection? Smart solutions allow you to analyze previously transferred data as well as request new data transfers anytime, and deliver requested data from the ship when possible. Typically, solutions that provide you with this kind of preferred accessibility are web-based and run in the cloud.


A ship-to-shore solution should be able to grow with your fleet and your demands. Yesterday’s solutions were often made with one or a few ships in mind, and so using them became increasingly difficult as the fleet in general was equipped with the same technology and more resources or adaptions were required. Today’s web-based cloud solutions are built with scalability as one of their cornerstones. This means that nowadays the process of equipping more ships with a certain solution, or adding more resources is as simple as communicating the need to your ship-to-shore solutions partner. A web-based cloud solution can easily be upgraded and expanded with more storage space, more applications or other resources of importance to your organization.


Many of the early solutions for providing access to ship data were based on inefficient remote desktop architectures or were giving users full access to the ship network, with only certain limitations to what damage could be achieved from simple mistakes. First of all, look for a solution that has encrypted data transfer and a two-step login procedure (through additional one-time security codes, in the same way you log in to an online bank account). This ensures that only authorized users have access to sensitive data. Secondly, ask for a solution that gives users access only to the functionality that is necessary in order to complete a certain task. Thirdly, the onboard hardware should be equipped with a Firewall that completely blocks any incoming connection attempts. It should always be the equipment on the ship that establishes ship-to-shore connections. You should never have to accept opening up ports and tunnels in to your sensitive network, even if they are VPN-based.


Ask for a solution that is quick to install and simple to integrate with existing IT infrastructure. Typically, cloud-based solutions are based on well-known and well-tested communication standards and technology, and will provide with a cost-efficient integration. Also, cloud-based solutions means no need for any physical server installations, which further reduces costs. As for data transfers from ship to shore, they should respect the high cost for bandwidth and only be active when data is requested or needed. Furthermore, make sure that the onboard equipment will allow for remote diagnostics, keeping downtime and onboard service visits to a minimum.


Previous software solutions in the maritime industry where often based on software programs that had to be installed on a particular PC. One important characteristic of such PC software is that it is based on rather complex programming languages, meaning that they are expensive and time-consuming to develop for companies. The price for this is payed by the customers. For this reason, ask instead for a web-based cloud solution. Web-based solutions make use of the enormous advancements made the recent years through HTML5 and Javascript, and adaptations and customizations are a lot easier to make in this programming environment. This means that if your organization needs a solution that can easily be adapted to your needs, make sure to ask for a web-based solution.


Although there are many factors to consider, the possibilities offered by ship-to-shore solutions are well worth pursuing. Staying well-informed is key to your success. Want to know more? Should you have interest in these types of solutions, please contact your nearest Consilium office for advice.
