Yokogawa Wins ICSS Contract for Cygnus Project

GDF Suez announced Thursday that it has awarded Yokogawa Europe Solutions a contract to supply integrated control and safety systems (ICSS) for the Cygnus offshore development project in the UK North Sea.

The Cygnus gas discovery, located in the North Sea’s Southern Gas Basin, is estimated to hold approximately 635 billion cubic feet of gas.

Under the contract, Yokogawa will supply the complete ICSS comprising of the following systems: process control, process shutdown, emergency shutdown, fire & gas detection (complete with associated field devices), process data historian, and field device asset management.

Yokogawa will also be supplying an operator training system (OTS).

The ICSS will be distributed across the Cygnus complex, which currently consists of a total of four greenfield offshore platforms. Three platforms are bridge linked (Alpha WHP, PU, and UQ) and a second remote drilling centre is located on the fourth platform (Bravo WHP). The planned export route is through the ETS pipeline system to the Perenco Bacton Gas Terminal in North Norfolk.
