Established in 1984, Advanced Technology Products (ATP) is a privately owned company with its head office located in Western Australia and regional offices in Darwin, Newcastle and Adelaide.
ATP designs, engineers and procures fire and gas detection, fire alarm systems, flame detection, RFID & RTLS (Real Time Location System) solutions. We also provide customised wireless explosion proof and Hazardous area systems in the oil and gas, mining, petrochemical and special risk industrial markets in Australia and South East Asia.
ATP was awarded two prime contracts as part of the Ichthys LNG Project in Darwin, one of the largest LNG Projects in Australia. The contracts are for the Mobile Data Collection System (MDCS), and the Personnel Locator System (PLS) which have now been combined into the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) package that will provide RFID asset tagging and Real Time Location System (RTLS) personnel tracking at the Inpex Ichthys LNG onshore facility.
ATP is responsible for the engineering, design, documentation, equipment supply, FAT, Integrated FAT and implementation on site of both systems.
The design and engineering work required for each system is complex and challenging due to the size and remote location of the facility together with this being the first “whole site” implementation of RTLS on an LNG Facility. Operating conditions require the systems to withstand temperatures of fifty degrees and above, cyclonic conditions, corrosion from salt spray, and heavy wet weather.
