Oil & gas

Oil & gas is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. The increasing demand for these raw materials results in their extraction from more and more inaccessible deposits, e.g. at seas and oceans using offshore platforms. The growing security challenges implicate the development of modern methods for condition monitoring and diagnostics of all important machinery such as pumps and compressors. Lack of monitoring and diagnostics causes dangerous failures, which sometimes result in oil spills and contamination of the environment. However, installation and flawless operation of condition monitoring systems at oil and gas platforms faces serious challenges such as: requirement of intrinsic safety according to the ATEX directive, and very harsh operational environment associated with presence of salt, grease, as well as temperature variations. EC Systems has a broad experience with machinery condition monitoring and diagnostics systems operating in very harsh environments, including offshore platforms. This allows us to provide both ready-to-use solution, as well as to develop a dedicated system, which will satisfy the most sophisticated customer needs.
