Salunda, a leader in digitised solutions for safety critical industries, has secured a contract to install its ‘Crew Hawk’ Red Zone monitoring solution on a jack-up rig in the Middle East, its first installation on a jack-up rig in the region

Crew Hawk wirelessly monitors hazardous working environments in real-time, tracking individuals and equipment to provide anonymised feedback that focuses on safe operations and minimising risk.
When an individual enters an exclusion or Red Zone, it promptly triggers an alarm, sending notifications to both the individual’s personal locator and the area authority, allowing both parties to take corrective action.

Significant milestone

Alan Finlay, Salunda chief executive, said, “This contract win marks a significant milestone for Salunda as one of several deployments in the Middle East. We are pleased to be partnering with our colleagues in the region to improve safety for staff and optimise performance within a safety-critical industry.

“Crew Hawk has redefined red zone monitoring by reviewing operations in real time and we are excited to be continuing to bring our robust and efficient solution to new markets and regions.”

Crew Hawk has already been used to track workforce assets and provide an additional layer of awareness and alerts to operational plans while working with rig control solutions for customers.
