Understanding Asset Integrity Management and its Importance

Asset Integrity Management, also represented by the acronym AIM, is the ability of an industrial asset to perform its function precisely and efficiently, optimizing its useful life and bringing more security to the people who interact with these assets. Asset management is necessary from the design stage to the end of an asset useful life. All stages of the process must be taken into account so that there is an efficient management without major risks to the environment, people and the industrial installation of which they are a part. In this blog, we will show the the challenges that [...]

Since 2020 we can notice an accelerated movement of digitalization driven by digital transformation and concepts previously presented in industry 4.0. The technologies developed in these periods and their fast emergence have provided enough visibility for broad application in complex tasks among production processes and industrial operations.     The trend is that, in the coming years, the application [...]

Perspectives for renewable energy sector

For at least 150 years, human activity has been the primary responsible for emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.     The imminent threat of climate change has been pushing the need for energy transition by the industrial sector. Since the Kyoto protocol, industries have been developing roadmaps for a more sustainable operation with greater control over carbon emissions balanced with asset performance. Later, the Paris Agreement defined the need to contain global temperature by 2 degrees Celsius annually. And, in 2021, the COP26 (The United Nations Conference on Climate Change) reiterated the need for effective actions with [...]

The Digital Twin revolution in the oil and gas industry

In April 2010, a large-scale accident occurred in the Gulf of Mexico. After failures in the structural and safety components of the Deepwater Horizon Drilling Rig, the offshore platform exploded, causing a major oil spill. Being considered one of the biggest environmental disasters ever caused, it highlighted the importance of implementing asset integrity management programs on oil and gas platforms, seeking to ensure greater safety in operations. As digital transformation has advanced, several technologies have emerged as tools that can dramatically reduce the risks of such accidents. In particular, the Digital Twin technology. In this article, the main challenges [...]

Benefits of Digital Twin in the process industry

A process industry is one that, from different raw materials, combines and transforms materials into new products. To carry out this process, thermal or chemical transformations usually occur, resulting in a final product that cannot be separated into its initial ingredients. For the finished product to be of high quality, the production process must be meticulously controlled step by step. Because of all the complexity in these industries, it is common to implement technologies that help control the operation, such as Digital Twin for exemple. In this article you will learn about the main problems that happen in the [...]
