Ratnagiri, India - Skid Mounted HIPPS

Application: High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS)
Installation Area: Ratnagiri, India
Client: Whessoe Oil & Gas

SELLA CONTROLS was awarded a contract by Whessoe Oil & Gas Ltd to supply a Skid Mounted High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS) for a LNG Import Terminal at Ratnagiri, India. The HIPPS system is based on the HIMA HIMatrix safety PLC’s and is certified to SIL 3 in accordance with IEC 61508.

The HIPPS is mounted on a Skid to simplify transportation to the site and local installation. The complete system is split into two parts. The two 18 inch Mokveld HIPPS valves with associated pipework, pressure transmitters, compressed air operating system, limit switches and junction boxes will be mounted on a skid frame. This will then be dropped in to the LNG Import pipework on the jetty, close to the tanker offloading area. The skid will be classed as a hazardous area meaning the junction boxes must be Ex certified.

The ESD system is to be located in a safe area in a nearby local control room and hardwired to the junction boxes on the skid. The LNG terminal, located on India’s west coast, is being refurbished under new ownership after having been previously decommissioned in 2005. Once refurbishment is complete the sites capacity should be approximately 1 million tonnes per year.
