Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that its subsidiary, Yokogawa United Kingdom Ltd., has been awarded a multi-million pound contract by SSE Hornsea Ltd for the upgrade of one of the UK’s largest onshore underground gas storage facilities, located at Atwick, East Yorkshire.
Yokogawa United Kingdom will supply an integrated control and safety system, together with a metering solution. The order includes the supply and installation of Yokogawa’s flagship CENTUM® VP integrated production control system to control the gas compressors. Also included in the project is the ProSafe®-RS integrated safety instrumented system, which will contribute to ensuring process safety at the facility.
Herman van den Berg, President, Yokogawa Europe B.V: “In Europe and North America, gas is often stored in underground facilities, and many projects for the construction and upgrade of such facilities are in the planning stage, spurred by such developments as the surge in shale gas production. Yokogawa is targeting the natural gas industry, and we believe that this project will allow us to gain further expertise in gas storage control and safety applications that we intend to share with the entire Group.”
