Hima-Sella provides safety systems for Teesside gas plant

Hima-Sella, a specialist in safety systems, is providing emergency shutdown (ESD) and automated overpressure protection systems to the Teesside gas processing plant in Middlesbrough, which is currently being modified to receive and process gas from the Breagh field in the North Sea.

The company has been awarded two contracts; the first — awarded by AMEC — requires the production of an ESD system that will reside at the processing plant and on the unmanned Breagh Alpha platform.

The second contract, awarded by J Murphy and Sons, will see Hima-Sella provide a high-integrity pressure protection system (HIPPS).

The ESD and HIPPS are scheduled for delivery in quarter three 2012.
