Press release from: Ubisense

Following testing and development stimulated by demand from leading companies such as BP, ExxonMobil, Shell, AGIP/ENI and StatoilHydro, S3-ID have integrated their hazardous area e-Locator™ and e-Muster™ system with the market leading precise real-time locating system from Ubisense to provide a fully integrated Personnel solution

Cambridge and Rotherham UK – February 2009 – S3-ID and Ubisense announced today that they had achieved a level of integration of S3-ID’s patented approach to personnel location and mustering used on many offshore Oil and Gas Complexes with the world’s leading precise real-time location system used in many industrial complexes, creating a unique product for the oil and gas industry.

"The features of the new product were put together following a combined 25 year pedigree in the deployment of systems to many Oil companies like BP, Statoil Hydro, bhp billiton and Nexen" says Eivind Frediksen, Managing Director of S3-ID "this will revolutionise personnel safety on offshore and on-shore installations. Never before has this level of integration been achieved in such complex and harsh environments as encountered in the offshore industry."

The combined product will allow our customers to extend current location and muster systems capability from identifying when personnel enter or exit defined areas to that of continuous monitoring wherever they may be. In the event of an incident continuous monitoring decreases the time to identifying the location of all personnel in a timely manner.

Ubisense’s CEO, Richard Green stated "The adoption of our system by such a long-standing and respected company in the safety market is testimony to the robustness of our system in such challenging environments. This development further expands the applicability of our solution to the whole oil and gas market and expands our customer base to the offshore field as well as on-shore".
