Every oil and gas facility is unique. The choice of fire safety level depends on operational and legislative demands as well as investments already made (retrofit projects). With Consilium, you can go for SIL 2 everywhere or, for example, combine NON-SIL and SIL 2 in the same system.

Meeting your needs
How quickly can your fire detection system contribute to breaking an escalating fire? What are the gains in uptime if you can reduce the amount of false alarms? The risk analysis is the number one priority for us when putting together a proposal for you.

The modular design of our CFD5000 fire detection system allows us to create a customized solution, with different safety levels for your preferences. You can implement the system step-by-step and are not forced to replace all your existing systems.

CFD5000 is SIL 2 certified by TÜV NORD according to IEC 61508.

Every detail counts
Excellent products are fundamental for excellent fire safety. We offer detectors for non-explosive and explosive environments. All detectors are addressable and have built in short circuit isolators. You can find out exactly which detector triggered the alarm, reducing risk and saving time. The system’s Built-In Self-Test (BIST) continuously monitor important product functionality. Essential for fire detection systems that are supposed to meet SIL 2 requirements.

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.

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.

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 preventive system can be installed as a stand-alone system or as an integrated system to a Consilium fire- or gas detection system.

Consilium has a strong global presence in the marine market and a well-established sales and service organisation with local offices and service and support representatives in more than 55 countries. We believe Consilium’s global presence and knowledge within this field will help us develop DASPOS further and fits well into our business plan. Having access to a global service and sales network will also be to the benefit of our customers. Flexibility and reliability is a win-win for everyone in the supply chain, says Lars Gerner Lund, COO and co-founder with DASPOS.
