regulations demand integrated solutions which reliably, simply and
transparently unite all components in all segments of the energy industry.
Maximum system availability, long life cycles and robustness are top priorities
for operators and manufacturers. iTAC's Pipe Tracking System (iPTS) facilitates
seamless structures and problem-free processes to optimize materials flows and
supply chain management.
Continually increasing energy requirements and demands
for greater supply reliability are resulting in an increasing number of energy
providers introducing digital grid management concepts. This applies equally to
the municipal networks of public utility companies and the undersea pipelines
of global energy consortiums.
iPTS – the iTAC Pipe Tracking System
With the iPTS, the pipe-laying and network
installation processes in all the energy segments can be managed and monitored.
This standard software is a central tool for managing the logistics and
documentation of individual network segments such as pipes, valves etc. and for
the operation of a network, e.g. a pipeline. It provides a comprehensive
overview of the materials installed, as well as when and where they were
installed. The assignment of geographical coordinates such as cable crossings
is an important aspect of this process, as is information about when each pipe
has to be inspected and the faults that were discovered in the inspection.
State of the art information technology is essential for the fully automated
capture of this volume of data.
wide supply and networking
iTAC delivers this reliability with its configurable
standard software and a Pipe Tracking System (PTS). The iPTS´s comprehensive
analysis functions provide the data necessary to resolve the typical problems
associated with setting up and operating a supply grid. It therefore
contributes to process operation and safety in complex pipeline structures.
