Valve Monitoring and Insights and System Enhancements
Owner: Shell / Gassco
V-MAP is a permanently installed valve monitoring and diagnostics system, designed to deliver 100% reliability in the most critical valves in a process plant. This in situ valve monitoring system provides a data driven approach to asset management and maintenance activities for process owners/operators. The first installation of this system was delivered at the Ormen Lange facility in Norway in 2004 and it has assisted in the delivery of 100% reliability in the valve population it has been monitoring there to date. The success and value of the original installation was underlined when an extension to the system was added in 2016. A 50% increase in the volume of valves being monitored was added, given the customer's satisfaction with the original system's performance. V-MAP insights deliver operators both qualitative and quantitative data which allows them to optimise their asset management programme and engage in a value-based, proactive asset maintenance approach.See Details
