The placement of tank farms near populations carries with it a great responsibility to safeguard people in the area from equipment failure.
Using the Roctest system, vessels which are used to store oil, gas, natural gas, and LNG at tank farms, can be wrapped in fiber optic cable to identify hot/cold spots in their tanks. Linked through our sensors to SCADA systems, these hot/cold spots indicate areas on a tank or pipeline which need to be examined and monitored. By looping the fiber optic cable around the vessels and pipelines, up to 500 zones can be formed, all of which can be monitored 24/7/365. This system can also be put in place to monitor the entire site. Over the course of the lifecycle of a tank farm, it is crucial that the vessels at these storage facilities have continuous monitoring to ensure the safety of the people and communities.
