Church Crookham, UK, 19th September 2016 – Fotech Solutions, the linear asset monitoring technology specialist, will be exhibiting at the biennial International Pipeline Exposition at the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre from 27th- 29th September 2016. 

At the conference, Fotech will be showcasing how its sophisticated LivePIPE monitoring solution provides operators with the information to anticipate, pinpoint and respond to malicious attacks, accidental damage caused by industrial activity and potential leak incidents with far greater accuracy, speed and reliability than ever before.

“LivePIPE is a vital technology for achieving a zero incident pipeline environment,” commented Chris Shannon, CEO, Fotech Solutions. “While North America is one of the most mature pipeline markets in the world, there remains a huge opportunity for operators to improve their safety and security measures. 

“Our LivePIPE solution gives operators continuous visibility of pipeline integrity threats across an entire pipeline network.  When integrated with existing monitoring systems it enables operators to better direct and co-ordinate their security and monitoring resources, manage their responses to incidents more effectively and react in a timely manner before incidents become expensive disasters.”

The LivePIPE solution, using Fotech’s DAS technology, connects directly into an operator’s fibre optic network, converting a standard optical fibre, which is attached or adjacent to the pipeline, into tens of thousands of highly sensitive vibrational sensors. When vibrations from TPI or leak events disturb the  fibre, LivePIPE can accurately identify and locate potential threats in real-time.

The International Pipeline Exposition brings together industry experts, government regulators and the general public to discuss the future of the industry and discover the latest pipeline technologies. 

Fotech will be demonstrating LivePIPE throughout the conference at booth number 917
