GasSecure AS announces the signing of an agreement with Yokogawa Electric Corporation on the distribution of GasSecure’s ISA100 Wireless based gas detectors through Yokogawa’s global sales network. With this agreement, Yokogawa gains access to GasSecure’s wireless gas detectors and thereby strengthens its lineup of plant field wireless solutions and enhances its support of health, safety, security, and environment (HSSE) management applications.
This agreement will also allow GasSecure to gain access to Yokogawa’s global sales and service network and thereby boost the sales of its wireless gas detectors.
GasSecure’s wireless gas detectors detect leaks of hydrocarbon gas that can cause explosions. Utilising ultra-low power infrared sensors, they perform measurements and send that information wirelessly to the host monitoring system.
Founded in 2008, and financially backed by Viking Venture, Investinor, ProVenture and SINTEF, GasSecure is ISO 9001 certified and has developed the world’s first truly wireless optical gas detector suitable for demanding industrial applications.
GasSecure is led by company founder and chief executive officer Knut Sandven and supported by a team of experts in low-power gas detection and safe wireless communication. GasSecure is a recognised leader in wireless gas detection with pioneering research that has received several awards including the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award in the European Gas Detection Industry.
GasSecure GS01 wireless hydrocarbon infrared gas detector installations range from arctic to tropical conditions and cover the most demanding offshore platforms, terminals, tanks farms, drill sites and petrochemical plants where clients wish to benefit from cost reductions and ease of installation.
