Projects of Ichthys’ size and complexity
also call for partners and suppliers to work globally. To meet that demand, HIMA offices in Singapore, China (Shanghai), South Korea (Geoje), Dubai (UAE), Australia (Perth) and Germany (Bruehl) have collaborated closely. Project management is coordinated from Bruehl, while most day-to-day work with fellow project suppliers takes place in Singapore.
That’s also where function tests have been conducted on more than 1,200 cabinets supplied by the basic process control system (BPCS) supplier, HIMA and project partners.

  Westfälische Lokomotivfabrik Reuschling relies on modern and proven COTS solutions -   COTS   solutions   (Commercial off-the-shelf) - March 2015

HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH

COTS solutions that contribute to lowering operating costs, and allow fast and easy future modifications

For safety technology, Reuschling relies on COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) safety controllers from HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH. The flexible, scalable controllers are certified up to SIL 4, in accordance with CENELEC, and are characterized by their openness and easy programming. The safety systems also make an important contribution to a new development from Westfälische Lokomotivfabrik Reuschling: the modular concept locomotive R500C.

Walter Schreiber (Reuschling) explains:

"The controllers offer a flexibility that is significantly higher than that of other devices,
and they are a mature system. And above all, at HIMA we have contact persons – people with whom we can work. For our custom concepts we must develop solutions together, and that can only happen in a partnership-based dialogue."
