Dresser Masoneilan will supply emergency shutdown devices for BP’s floating production, storage and offloading vessel operating in the Plutao, Saturno, Venus and Marte oil fields in Africa.

The US company said its SVI II ESD analogue units will integrate the Yokogawa Pro-Safe-RS safety instrumented system and Yokogawa PRM asset management suite.

The system provides diagnostics and enables partial stroke testing of the emergency shutdown valves at regular intervals.

Additional features on the SVI II ESD device include an LCD display and explosion-proof external push buttons.
