NI holds offshore oil and gas summit in Scotland
Measurement technologies for the oil & gas and renewable industries will be presented at the NI Offshore Measurement Summit 2014, which takes place at the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen on 1st July.
Themes covered throughout the summit include:
PC-Based Measurements – Whether PC-based research and development, or rugged deployments offshore, learn about high-performance customised systems that combine measurements such as vibration, temperature, strain, pressure and flow.
Custom Embedded Development with Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Platforms – Projects such as subsea prototyping and volume deployment can be expensive in terms of initial development cost, time to market and product life cycle management. Presentations in this theme will focus on the significant benefits realisable when using an off-the-shelf approach.
Asset Condition Monitoring – Rotating machinery requires maintenance to prevent failure. Learn how to develop a bespoke condition monitoring system using off-the-shelf tools, in order to reduce downtime and lower repair costs; whilst lengthening maintenance cycles and optimising machine performance.
A keynote presentation will explore the rapid development approach of using COTS platforms to develop highly flexible bespoke systems, and Frederic Perdrix of Houlder will discuss how Lloyds Register certified off-the-shelf hardware for the 70-ton gripper arm used in offshore wind turbine installation.
Other speakers will include: Morten Pedersen, director at CIM Industrial Systems who will show how Vestas Technology can be used to develop a test program that verifies design whilst proving reliability.
Delegates will also explore real-world offshore applications created for the leading companies in the industry such as DONG Energy, the British Geological Survey and Canyon Offshore.
