Our safety systems are fault-tolerant, reliable computer-based systems. The systems ensure high availability and prevent spurious shutdowns without compromising safety.


The purpose of the emergency shut down system (ESD) is to maintain an adequate level of safety for personnel, and to protect the installation and the environment against pollution. The ESD system is the top-level safety system exclusively dedicated to the reduction of risk and the consequences of a failure.

Emergency shut down system features

  • Extensive safety management functions
  • Comprehensive fault diagnostics and self checking
  • Controlled flexibility concerning maintenance & modifications
  • Standardised hardware and software with process and marine control systems

The ESD system is certified by TÜV to DIN V VDE 801, class 6.
