Industry collaboration solves the CAP437 compliance conundrum

Proeon and Lowestoft based, Sembarine SLP have joined forces under an MOU, to offer the operators of offshore assets the only current comprehensive solution to the impending CAP437 - 7thEdition revisions. By 2016, operators on the UKCS with installations having fixed helidecks are required to comply with the latest standard, which will include the installation of an LED illuminated Circle & H, and a Deck integrated Fire Fighting system (DIFFs).

For a typical solution, Sembmarine SLP will offer clients the complete certified installation of the LED illuminated circle-H, DIFF nozzles and pump skid all integrated to a Proeon developed control solution. This will provide Dräger based video flame detection, with optional CCTV functions, and operation of the helideck lighting, all tied into the platform’s ESD if required.

Sembmarine SLP working in collaboration with Proeon, firmly believes this solution is the first step to provide a safe, cost effective and comprehensive answer to the soon to be enforced helicopter operation safety system changes.

The collaboration will be showcasing the solutions at a special event to be held on the 29thof January, at the i2 Building, 210 Union st. Aberdeen, SLP offices.

ISO9001:2008 and 14001:2004

Proeon Systems are delighted to announce that we have successfully achieved both our ISO9001:2008 and new for this year, ISO14001:2004.  

We’ve had our ISO 9001:2008 certification for three years now, which was a relatively easy process when we were a much smaller company. Now Proeon is at the heady heights of nearly 30 personnel, with defined departments, and enhanced management systems, we are pleased to see another audit successfully achieved.

To add to this achievement, we’ve also been on the path way for the ISO 14001: 2004 Environmental Management certification, which was also awarded this month.

So what do these two certificates mean?

Well, as a client you are assured that Proeon Systems carries out all projects and works following structured Quality Management and Environmental Management Systems, with defined procedures, work instructions and policies developed to protect your people and our people against risk from poor practice, H&S, and environmental considerations.

Proeon is dedicated to continuous improvement and will follow the ISO standards through our business.

More New Faces

Proeon is pleased to announce, albeit a bit late, that we’ve added a few new members to our team in the last couple of months; Les Thomas, Matthew Cole and Stephen Appleby.

Les, heads up our expanding CAD department, with the ability to develop 3D animated renditions of our builds, right through to 2D line drawings of circuits and assemblies.  

Matthew joins Les in the CAD department as a seasoned CAD engineer, increasing our CAD and design capabilities.

Stephen, will be supporting our growing Test & Validation team in our new purpose built Test Workshop which includes a specialist ESD protective environment room for ESD testing of equipment and project builds.

And as of the date of this press release, we’re still recruiting, so if you’re interested in a working in this exciting company, click here for more information on the roles available.

New Projects

It has been a busy week at Proeon HQ. Last week we were delighted when we received a total of 3 purchase orders with a combined value of over £600k comprised of a single order of £345k from one of our newer clients. This order forms a third part of a larger project in the Sub-Sea and Workover sector that Proeon was awarded earlier in the year. This latest section comprised of Safety System development and we will deliver both bespoke software and a sizeable hardware build based on Rockwell and Beckhoff componentry.

Further orders were received for 2 complete North Sea Gas platform Fire & Gas Control Panel Systems based on the fantastic value SIL 2/3 SCAME Sistemi F&G panel. These platform fire & gas systems are scheduled to be installed and commissioned by close of the year.

If you wish to know more about our bespoke control systems and fire & gas system solutions, please feel free to call one of our team or complete the form on the contact us page.

Proeon Outgrows Offices... again!

For the third time in 2 years Proeon Systems is forced into lifting, lugging, sweating, and sliding furniture, computers, printers, and paraphernalia into new premises.

The big advantage is that the move is only along the corridor. This marks another key stage in the business development with expansion enabling the recruitment of further engineering staff to fulfil significant projects. Proeon has been at the Hethel Engineering Centre for the last 4 years and has become the biggest tenant at the centre. Recruitment in the last month has seen 2 further CAD Engineers, and 2 further Engineers for Software and Hardware. 

Proeon's contact details have remained the same, so feel free to give us a call to discuss your requirements: 01953 859 110.


Proeon is choosing to kick-off the 2014 Event Season by having rather an unusual presence at the East of England Energy Group’s annual bash, the Sea of Opportunity.

This year’s event is to be held at one of East Anglia’s premier venues, The Royal Norfolk Show ground, just outside of the picturesque city of Norwich. Proeon have had a show stand at this event before, but this year is different.  Dr Dorian Hindmarsh, Proeon’s Business Development Manager said “This year we are celebrating ten years of business for Proeon, so we thought we should do a bit more than previous years. We’re building an impressive display, code named the Police Box, and show goers will be able to see live demos of Scame Sistemi Fire and Gas detection, Gas Turbine control systems and other specialist control systems while having a complementary coffee and nibble on stand in our hospitality lounge.”

Proeon will be on stand A34+ at the EEEGR two day event, so come along and meet the team, and maybe even pick up a Proeon goodie.
