INTECH enables Control and Monitoring of a Remote Facility over GSM in Nigeria

INTECH Process Automation helped integrate an export manifold and its metering from a remote site without power and connectivity infrastructure to a main gas receiving station in West Africa. This helped the client monitor data as well as control operations of the remote site from its main facility.

The client is a major Nigerian gas development, production and distribution company who planned to install clamp-on ultrasonic meters at a remote facility. Absence of electrical power supply or a control room at the remote site made it difficult to integrate it with the main gas receiving station.

INTECH was solicited to design, engineer and supply a Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) and Solar Power System for the remote site in addition to proposing a solution to integrate the site with the main facility. INTECH proposed dual GSM modems for the gas receiving station and the RTU – utilizing existing GPRS networks in order to establish Flowmeters Integration with the main gas receiving station; thus eliminating the need to install expensive communication infrastructure. INTECH also configured PLCs of both the sites – main gas receiving station and remote terminal unit.

INTECH’s solution was an energy efficient design with solar-power installations and minimal infrastructure expenditure; completing the project well within its assigned timelines while adhering strictly to the client’s requirements.
