The drilling vessel Omalius, was recently updated with a complete new fire detection system: Autronica AS4. With this new fire detection system, containing self-verifying sensors, the Omalius becomes even more fireproof.

Croonwolter&dros was responsible for the installation of the new system. Approximately 120 new detectors have been placed on the vessel. The new system was commissioned together with Ascom. The entire job took six working days. Everything was completed to the satisfaction of the vessel’s owner, DEME.
