Cyberhawk has announced that it has been awarded a three-year contract by an oil and gas supermajor to provide a digital asset management solution during the construction of its new world-scale petrochemical complex in the US.
The main construction phase of the project is already underway, which involves the construction of processing units, cooling towers, rail and truck loading facilities, a water treatment plant, office buildings and laboratory at the new petrochemical site.
As part of the construction, the operator sought a comprehensive, detailed software solution which would allow a digitised view of drone captured data, such as orthophotos, spherical images, 3D point cloud models and videos collected on-site on a weekly basis.
Cyberhawk was chosen to provide drone content management and distribution services thanks to its visual asset management software, iHawk, which has been developed to host inspection and survey data from various sources and has industry specific solutions for the wind, utilities, oil and gas and infrastructure sectors.
For this project, iHawk Construction is providing all stakeholders with an up-to-date, at-a-glance visual overview of the project at any given time and from anywhere in the world.
Chris Fleming, CEO at Cyberhawk, said: “Despite having worked with this oil and gas supermajor for the last eight years, in more than eight countries, this is the first time iHawk has been adopted at such large scale. The client was impressed by the functionality offered by iHawk and Cyberhawk’s ability to build on this platform to create a fully customised, bespoke solution for its needs.
“Since launching iHawk in 2014, we have significantly invested in ongoing development to create a world-leading digital asset management solution. Data has become crucial part of the energy sector and whilst collecting detailed information is important, how we use this data to create efficiencies is real objective.
“We are extremely encouraged that our experience and investment in iHawk has been recognised for this important project.”
