Connectivity is the new oil – and it’s helping the old oil. Together, Telia and Tampnet are connecting oil rigs in the North Sea with 4G and NB-IoT.
By using IoT to automate processes and systems, oil companies will be able to save enormously in costs. Things like measuring the pressure in a pipe, measuring vibration in the structure, predicting when a machine needs maintenance, .
But more importantly, it also helps protect the environment and workers. Leaks can be detected and valves turned off immediately and remotely. And workers no longer need to manually check meter values on older rigs – which is not something you want to be doing in high seas.
