2021 Excellence in Automation Award Winner - EnQuest UK (August 17th 2022)

Title:  A new approach to gas detection - Achieving a safe and secure system upgrade on a vast scale

Description:  EnQuest PLC cover the challenges in complexity and scale of upgrading the gas detection across an entire terminal as one project. This includes a major step-change by gaining approval for wireless detection as the detection technology; the cyber security capabilities of the system were a key focus, of which the 128bit AES encryption was critical. The system widely employs dual redundancy for maximum communication resilience, giving more data than a traditional wired system which is then easily absorbed in to the existing ICSS (Integrated Control & Shutdown System). These process values and preventive maintenance data are then used to influence maintenance regimes across the gas detection system to more efficiently deploy engineering resources.Title:  A new approach to gas detection - Achieving a safe and secure system upgrade on a vast scale
