R. STAHL, a leading manufacturer of explosion protection solutions, announces collaboration between its UK subsidiary and Norfolk-based Proeon Systems Ltd.. This agreement is to support the delivery of turnkey integrated control and automation projects and solutions.
The collaboration between both, Proeon Systems and R. STAHL in the UK, leads to a winning formula of R. STAHL’s product expertise, certification knowledge and hazardous area solution specialism and Proeon Systems’ application engineering, integration and delivery processes. Working together makes it possible for clients to engage directly with qualified and experienced specialist engineers to develop long-term, cost effective control and automation solutions to the critical Energy, Pharmaceutical and Chemical sectors across England and Wales.
The ability to engage with operators of hazardous area production facilities to scope out, engineer, and manufacture entire control and instrumentation packages is already an attractive proposition. However, the alliance will also make it possible to achieve high availability and high safety levels at an installation level prior to client handover, a combined skill-set which is not often available to procurement teams.
Dr Dorian Hindmarsh, Business Development Manager at Proeon Systems’ comments on the new partnership: “The skill to design a critical control system is not simply about clever software and elaborate graphical user interface on a screen. Our engineering team has to consider functionality, application and locations for the selection of the most appropriate hardware. Collaborating with R. STAHL enables us to join both hardware and system integration solutions together to provide a solid solution for plant wide support; both for legacy and new projects alike. R. STAHL’s broad range of products for hazardous areas plus its existing UK relationships have made the alliance a perfect fit.”
Proeon Systems Ltd. utilise their expertise to develop the control packages on the familiar platforms of Siemens, Rockwell, Beckhoff to name but a few. These can be installed and interfaced to R. STAHL’s comprehensive range of automation, HMI, Remote I/O and networking devices. For projects which require substantial product or large production runs, the relationship with R. STAHL’s cutting edge global manufacturing facilities can also provide a cost effective and efficient supported solution.
Proeon Systems Ltd. has been offering control and safety solutions for complex and critical applications to highly demanding industrial sectors since its inception over 15 years ago. The engineering business had already been using R. STAHL’s product range for client projects for both the offshore sector and for sites listed for the control of major accident and hazard (COMAH) by the HSE.
This is the second partnership R. STAHL has made in recent months to enhance its presence and excellence in the UK.
