KONGSBERG's system philosophy is based on the use of a distributed and open system design that employs a system-wide standardized communication network. The network facilitates free flow of information from sub systems, with system wide information on multifunctional workstations. A common base technology and user interface for all automation applications ensures a safe and reliable operational environment.
The KONGSBERG integrated control system is more than hardware and software modules. It is a solution that ensures stable and optimal production. Combined with our dynamic process simulator, for DCS checkout and control philosophy testing, this ensures excellent control of the process and reduces the need for flaring and CO2 emission.
The automation system is designed for large scale integration of all automation applications in your installation. The real benefit of the integration is in operation, modification and maintenance; the operators have a unified operator interface and alarm system, easing the training of your operators. Common hardware and software platform reduces the amount of spare parts needed and thus reduces the life cycles cost. A common information management system transfer information to the base organization for support and optimization of your reservoir and production processes. The level of integration may vary from full integration of control logic at the package level and integration of unit control panels, to common human machine interface.
