Fiber Optic Systems Technology, a developer and producer of patented non-intrusive sensor products, has declared that it will offer corrosion monitoring systems for an important technology development project for the key energy sector backed by the Government of Alberta.
Fiber Optic Systems Technology’ corrosion monitoring systems offer round-the-clock remote monitoring functionalities to avoid leaks and accidents, prevent needless shutdowns and enhance planned maintenance operations.
Fiber Optic Systems Technology will play a major role by supplying corrosion monitoring systems for the metal loss calculations and offer engineering support to the technology development initiative for the pipeline industry. GE Water and Process Technologies, Alberta Innovates Technology Futures (AITF) and Advanced Education and Technology of the Alberta government are supporting the project.
AITF in partnership with the pipeline industry had launched the project called Pipeline Corrosion Management (PiCoM) project to study and enhance corrosion monitoring procedures for the midstream and downstream operations of the petroleum industry. AITF offers financial support and technical services for the guidance and commercialization of the technologies.
The PiCoM project couples the expertise of several companies in the pipeline industry and the research capacities of AITF to evaluate monitoring technologies, assess and maximize corrosion reducing strategies and determine suitable methods in the corrosion monitoring field. Fiber Optic Systems Technology is happy to take part in the PiCoM project and to offer advanced solutions in the field of corrosion monitoring.
