Diagnostic inspection solutions provider NDT Global (Dublin, Ireland) announced the commercial release of the OPTIX data visualization and insights platform, which is designed to provide pipeline operators with an intuitive, Cloud-based dashboard to visualize all inline inspection (ILI) data in one accessible location.
According to the company, OPTIX is the first and only platform that allows Cloud-based ILI data visualization and direct interaction with the ILI vendor. Digitization of the final inspection report, combined with the ease of filtering and arranging relevant data, allows operators to better understand their ILI inspection results and make more informed decisions to ensure pipeline integrity.
“OPTIX further demonstrates NDT Global's commitment to providing the best diagnostic data to drive decision-ready insights for our clients,” says Santiago Urrea, head of integrity and field verification services. “When operators utilize NDT Global’s leading ILI technologies to collect the best possible data, they gain the necessary diagnostic insights to make the best decisions for their specific asset. With OPTIX, we have further improved timely and confident decision making by bringing the power of clarity to the way operators access, interact with, and consume information."
The OPTIX platform provides a comprehensive view of pipeline conditions that were not previously available, with a goal of bringing together results from many inspection runs. According to the company, continued advancement in ILI technologies has led to significantly more data to extract and interpret. As such, moving to a secure, Cloud-based platform makes that data readily available and accessible, and it also allows each end user to explore the information relevant to them and gain insights based on their specific needs.
“Having this sort of information at their fingertips means operators can make better pipeline integrity decisions in just a few clicks,” NDT writes in its press release.
