In partnership with Librestream Technologies, Wood has developed a new camera technology that can stream video and store data from remote work locations, including offshore. The Onsight Cube is a rugged camera that can be worn on a helmet, chest mount or a mono-pod to access high or difficult-to-reach areas, and connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to a handset.
The technology connects specialists in any location directly with remote worksites, transferring real time data including audio, pictures, thermographic images and video. This allows decision-makers to review current status, issues and collaborate on resolutions which will improve the quality and speed of problem solving, reducing overall job turnaround time and avoiding the unnecessary mobilisation of people to remote locations.
Designed with a protective casing to withstand industrial applications, the technology comprises a thermal camera, onboard secure storage and can operate in harsh environments from -20 to 55°C.
In 2017, Wood extended its collaborative agreement with Librestream to continue its exclusive industry partnership, providing advanced digitally-enabled solutions for global oil and gas customers.
One such solution is Wood’s eXpert technology which has been successfully deployed on behalf of major operators in the UK, US, Canada, Australia and Middle East on a range of projects including plant shutdowns, routine maintenance inspections, live construction progress reporting and factory acceptance testing.
The Onsight Cube is fully compatible with eXpert and enhances the capabilities of the solution, allowing hands-free capture of high resolutions images, super-bright LED illumination and infra-red (thermal) vision capture and sharing. The camera will also be certified for safe use in all areas of oil and gas facilities.
