Many network operators have realized that the starting point for a strong data management system is precise knowledge of asset location. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and geography-based visualization is widely accepted as an ideal environment to manage pipeline, cable and other linear system(s) information.
iPipeline is an encrypted web GIS application that delivers an interactive map view of a pipeline location, product information, incident status and engineering records. This is underpinned by comprehensive decision support tools, which assist the safe and responsible management of pipeline networks.
Share information across your organisation
iPipeline provides secure online access to a map view of an organisation’s pipeline network. Control room personnel and other authorised users can simply log in to access up to date information about the pipeline and analyse this information in support of business-critical decisions.
Improve Incident Control
Provides an owner/operator with a map view of its pipeline and associated infrastructure. The system allows the capture of crucial incident information such as the exact location of a pipeline rupture. Easy to use tools enable users to quickly determine the potential impact of an incident on the surrounding area and locate nearby emergency services, hospitals, response personnel, medical care and response equipment.
Quickly Locate and Track Product
Users can easily determine the real-time location of products in transit within the pipeline. Storage tank volumes and grade, pipeline and grade, can all be displayed on top of the map. The system performs automatic alerts which can be configured to include automatic email, broadcasting of pre-recorded voice, SMS Text and Pager, providing a technology business layer that complements the physical alarm system in the prevention of storage tank capacity being exceeded and compromised.
Increase Engineering Efficiency
Accurately align and relate geographic location, facilities and other inspection data. Significant engineering time and effort is saved in design modifications and plant modifications.
