DELFT, The Netherlands Oct. 2, 2018 – Orbital Eye B.V., a member of the S[&]T group, announced today that it has signed a co-operation agreement with the German based energy company innogy SE.
Orbital Eye and innogy will work together in the development and exploitation of a Satellite based Monitoring method informing Network Operators about dangerous activities near their gas pipelines or power cables. With this co-operation a first step is made towards a fully automated and digitized Right-of-Way monitoring method for the Energy Distribution sector. This innovative solution will help the sector to reduce tens of millions per year of damage caused by outage and repair work, caused by unsupervised excavation activities, while increasing the external safety of their networks.
On the 21st of March of 2018 the CEO of Orbital Eye, Marco Betting, addressed the Dutch pipeline community with an inspiring talk on "Remote Sensing technology for pipeline route safety" during the Dutch National Pipeline Platform Event (Nationaal Buisleidingen Platform) organised by IIR Netherlands.

Pipeline operators are responsible for the safe transport of hazardous materials through transmission pipelines. Since pipeline failures can cause severe damage to people, infrastructure and the natural and built environment, operators are concerned with monitoring the integrity of their pipelines on a regular or even continuous basis. This article discusses the use of radar satellite imagery to provide pipeline operators with a continuous source of information in order to monitor and manage their assets from space.
The December issue of World Pipelines includes several articles that introduce and consider pipeline integrity and sensing, rehabilitation and retrofit, and much more.Read more
