NSRI: Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance

25th April 2017

The Village, Aberdeen, AB15 8PJ

In conjunction with CENSIS and The Data Lab.

The event will establish the sensory and electronic hardware requirements to monitor failure modes of subsea architecture for both oil and gas applications and offshore wind installations and lead on to the data analysis and decision systems to monitor deterioration and predictive failure. NSRI will produce an output report with a technology roadmap to guide the developer community.

Target audience/contributors: IRM service providers, sensor and electronics developers, data analysis and algorithm developers.

Book your ticket online on the Subsea UK website.

In addition NERC are to invest up to £3.5m in innovation projects focused on developing innovative monitoring approaches for the infrastructure, oil & gas and offshore renewable energy sectors.
