- Extreme environmental conditions
- Remote location requiring multiple power sources
- Lengthy pipeline run
- Flexible power acceptance
- High sensitivity monitoring
- Increased reliability
- Cross-platform integration
Pipelines around the world are often installed in remote locations, and in many cases, having a consistent power source can be problematic. Alternating current (AC) power is not always available so solar panels are sometimes used to provide direct current (DC) power along the pipeline. This can present a problem for operators who need to power an intrusion and leak-detection system along the pipeline, particularly if the system is unable to run using only one type of electrical current power.
To meet the challenge presented in these remote environments, OptaSense delivers some of the longest fiber-optic-based pipeline monitoring systems ever deployed and offers reliable, 24/7 trusted detection in real time, with the flexibility to adapt to the operational challenges these projects provide.
