Zenitel Norway AS has been awarded a global frame agreement by Statoil Petroleum ASA, for the delivery of systems for Public Address and General Alarm (PAGA). The newly developed Exigo system for PAGA will be available for Statoil's new and existing oil and gas installations worldwide.
The agreement ranges from the delivery of single products to commissioning of complete PAGA-systems. Zenitel's department for oil and gas named VINGTOR is responsible for the delivery. The agreement lasts for 4 years with the option for an extension of 2*2 years.
"Being awarded this contract is of great importance to us. We have recently developed a new IP-based system for PAGA called Exigo. The main part of the delivery will consist of this system and for us this agreement is a confirmation that we have developed a system that is in demand. The Exigo stands out from similar solutions on several key points. It is a result of thorough market research and a continuation of our groundbreaking research and development in the field of IP-technology", said Mr. Kenneth Dastol, CEO, Zenitel.
Zenitel was amongst the first players in the market to introduce IP-based Intercom systems. In 2013 Zenitel's efforts in the field of IP-technology was brought to a new level with Exigo. Exigo is a PAGA-system based on native IP-technology. This means that no extra interface units or other technical components need to be attached in order to provide IP signals from the microphone to the speakers. The system is software based, with the option for remote control and diagnostics. Being native IP the Exigo has fewer potential sources for errors than more traditional systems for PAGA.
"Being awarded a frame agreement by Statoil, a large player in the oil and gas business, is a valuable confirmation for us. It indicates that we have made the right choices in our research, planning and development of the Exigo system", said Mr. Dastol.
The Exigo product line was launched to the market in 2013. Based on native IP technology, the system is an advanced, scalable system specifically designed to meet the demands and needs of PAGA and general alarms for a variety of applications and environments. The Exigo solution offers enhanced features and functionality, yet simplistic in installation and set-up for Marine, Offshore and Industrial environments. In addition to system controller and amplifiers Zenitel have developed several new IP-based call panels for indoor, industrial and hazardous areas (Ex).
