Synectics – a global surveillance business – has signed contracts to supply integrated surveillance technology to one floating LNG (FLNG) facility and two LNG carriers. All three of the vessels are located in the South China Sea, and will be protected by Synectics’ COEX camera stations and Synergy command and control platform. The Synergy platform allows alarms, events, sub-systems, video and other data to be recorded from a single interface for monitoring and management.
The Asia Pacific Regional Director of Synectics, Kenny Tan, said: “Synectics has a strong heritage within the oil and gas market – our COEX camera stations have been protecting offshore and onshore assets for the past 30 years. These contract wins add another important milestone to that longevity and, combined with Synergy, will unify onboard vessel systems, improve incident response and facilitate heightened levels of situational awareness.”
The LNG carriers were built in a leading South Korean shipyard, and will use both COEX C3000 and C2000 camera stations (PTZ and fixed). These will allow the ship operators to monitor mooring, cargo, deck operations and vital onboard infrastructure.
On the FLNG vessel, which is engineered to produce 1.5 million tpy of LNG, over 60 COEX camera stations will be employed. The cameras, which have a lifespan at sea of 20 yr, will be added to both the hull and the topside of the vessel to monitor production storage and offloading.
The Business Development Director of Synectics, Amedeo Simonetto, said: “Our solutions protect critical assets across the globe – we are able to combine that knowledge and experience with on-the-ground support. A presence in the region is invaluable and was certainly a factor in securing these contracts.”
