  • The c.€1M order will be the single largest Dräger installation in the UK and one of our largest wireless gas detection installations globally, and represents a significant step forward in the adoption of wireless technology within the UK energy industry.
    The new contract is also thought to be the largest wireless gas detection system employed by a North Sea operator. Work will commence on the project, that includes the installation of over 120 wireless gas detectors, in September.
    The project was very time sensitive making wireless technology a great solution due to its fast deployment, using wireless technology also kept installation costs to a minimum whilst still providing the ability to precisely locate the detectors where the risk was deemed highest without having to consider existing brownfield infrastructure as part of the installation philosophy.
    As the oil and gas industry returns to tough market conditions, wireless gas detection offers an attractive solution to improve safety by using the latest technology whilst also keeping cost to a minimum.
