Breagh Alpha - HIPPS and ESD

Application: HIPPS and ESD
Installation Area: Teesside Gas Processing Plant, Seal Sands
Client: Teesside Gas Processing Plant

Two contracts were awarded for the design, manufacture and installation of safety systems for the Teesside Gas Processing Plant (TGPP) at Seal Sands in Middlesbrough, currently being modified to receive and process gas from the Breagh field in the North Sea.

Under one contract, awarded by AMEC, SELLA CONTROLS is providing an Emergency Shutdown (ESD) system at the processing plant which is being built around a HIMA HIQuad H51q-HS (SIL 3 rated) Programmable Electronic System (PES), which features dual redundant CPUs and will reside in four system cabinets (three of which will be at the processing plant and a fourth that will be located on the unmanned Breagh Alpha platform - approx. 100km offshore).

Under the second contract, awarded by J. Murphy & Sons Ltd, a civil engineering and building contractor, SELLA CONTROLS is providing a High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS) which will be located at a Beach Valve Compound (a landfall site about 10km from the processing plant for a 20” class 1500 pipeline from the Breagh Alpha platform). The HIPPS will also be based on the HIMA HIQuad H51q (PES) and will perform 2oo3 voting on pressure transmitters to provide autonomous and fail-safe protection of the downstream pipeline against overpressure.
