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.
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.
