A control room video wall system supplied by Burnley-based eyevis UK is about to hit 20,000 hours of uninterrupted operation as it helps to ensure the safe supply of gas at a key UK terminal.
eyevis UK equipment was installed in February 2016 to upgrade the control centre video wall and provide integrated audio and touch screen control systems.
The 12 55-inch screens are used to monitor process control applications and CCTV footage on a 24/7 basis and are now approaching 20,000 hours of trouble-free use.
Gassco is responsible for the safe and efficient transportation of gas from the Norwegian continental shelf and is a leading gas transporter in Europe.
The Easington terminal receives gas from Norway, transported via the 1,200-km-long Langeled pipeline. It includes gas from the Ormen Lange field, which alone can cover about 20 per cent of Britain’s gas needs.
eyevis UK managing director Steve Murphy said: “The installation replaced the old video wall system with the very latest eyevis video wall technology, whilst maintaining the existing functionality of a complex audio alarm system.
“It is essential that the market can rely on gas deliveries from Norway, so Gassco’s objective is to ensure safe and reliable gas transport. People who depend on gas in their daily lives must feel sure that the company will deliver as agreed and an efficient and reliable control room video system plays a key role in that objective.”
The eyevis UK video wall comprises eyevis 55-inch extremely narrow bezel industrial LCDs with eyevis Netpix 4900 video wall controllers, complete with Eyecon control software including an alarm management module.
