North America Demands Higher Standards in Offshore Safety: IDENTEC SOLUTIONS Delivers

LUSTENAU, Austria, and DALLAS - IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, the leader in industrial, wireless sensor networks announced today that they will be expanding their personnel safety and optimization solutions for the oil and gas industry into the North American market.

Already an established leader in personnel safety solutions in Europe, IDENTEC SOLUTIONS' systems are widely deployed and include well known customers such as ConocoPhillips, Gasco and Gaz de France. Their systems protect rig personnel in offshore fields around the world including the Middle East and the volatile North Sea.

"What sets our personnel safety solutions apart is they were developed in close collaboration with industry. Our WATCHEROFFSHORE systems have been designed to exceed the stringent standards and certifications of the industry," states Gerhard Schedler, President and CEO, IDENTEC SOLUTIONS. "We have experienced an increase in demand for proven personnel safety solutions for this vertical and have strategically positioned ourselves to globally support the industry, with a particular emphasis on the Americas."

IDENTEC SOLUTIONS' WATCHEROFFSHORE systems feature innovative personnel safety and optimization solutions designed specifically for oil rig deployment. The suite of WATCHEROFFSHORE options available to customers include mustering solutions, monitoring of lone workers, voice communication and access control. WATCHEROFFSHORE was developed to easily adapt to any unique customer requirements and environments.

The system is leveraged on IDENTEC SOLUTIONS' certified SensorSMART Platform. Considered the most robust sensor-based network available, the SensorSMART Platform is ideally suited for the rigorous demands of the Oil and Gas industry and is not affected by metal or external interference. The scalability and flexibility of the platform easily allows the system to be integrated into a customer's existing infrastructure and presents the ideal base for additional and partner applications. This approach provides the customer with unprecedented control both during deployment and for future expansion.

"In the event of an emergency, it is essential that a system designed to safeguard personnel in unforgiving environments, such oil platforms, be infallible," stated Frank Wehus, General Manager IDENTEC SOLUTIONS' Centre of Excellence, Oil, Gas, Mining & Tunneling in Norway. "Our personnel safety systems are easily self-contained and offer features such as onshore and offshore emergency evacuation coordination, alarm management and situation monitoring."

A natural evolution to existing deployments was the addition of workflow optimization tools. With an IDENTEC SOLUTIONS' system in place, adding supplementary sensors and software for complementing solutions such as asset tracking are easily achieved. Information on an asset's location as well as certifications, and maintenance aid in eliminating downtime and enhance overall operational efficiency.
