This month, Orbital Eye has started another project with GRTgaz, where we will be monitoring GRTgaz’ pipeline network in Paris. Since there is a lot of traffic in Paris, it takes field inspectors a lot of time to monitor the pipeline for Third Party Interferences. With our monitoring solution, the inspectors now will be alerted when an activity starts close to the pipeline, and they can inspect the activity by analysing the high-resolution optical imagery. This way, they can inspect the pipeline corridor from the office, and only need to go into the field when an activity needs to be checked on-site or in case an intervention is needed.
In 2021, Orbital Eye successfully demonstrated the CoSMiC-EYE monitoring technology on a rural part of GRTgaz’ network. We are looking forward to now also demonstrate our capabilities in the most urban part of France!
