Omicron special detection

Marine and offshore measuring and detection equipment

Every day, thousands of vessels navigate the world’s oceans, containing valuable and often high-risk products. We are dedicated to the crew onboard, always doing our best to ensure that they have the safest working conditions possible. 

Each application is unique in design or task, and it is our mission to provide each one with an optimal safety system. Autronica’s Omicron product range is designed to meet the most demanding requirements within the marine and offshore industries. For more than 25 years we have designed high level/overfill alarm systems, gas detection systems and vapour alarm systems to meet and exceed the individual demands of each vessel. The entire value chain from project engineering via production to after sales and administration is bundled in our Special Detection Competence Center in Norway, ensuring fast, efficient and high quality project realization. Based on the experience of approximately 200 projects per year and our thorough application know-how our team of dedicated and highly specialized employees will always find the ideal solution for your needs.

Since 1989 we have developed and optimized a range of high end systems that require minimal maintenance, are extremely robust and reliable as well as easy to operate. Our service-friendly systems fulfill all regulatory and class societies’ regulations and enable economically viable operations. Omicron systems can be used onboard high complexity vessels like LNG, LPG, FPSO, FSRU or similar, as well as on more standardized crude oil or chemical tankers.
