A major service oil company is developing a system of interconnected devices able to lower risks associated to operators working on drilling platforms. Devices operating in a drilling platform need to respect several requirements, not common in the market. Thus there is no (or few) solutions available in the market.
BlueThink is developing a suite of wearable devices able to give useful information to operators. Moreover, communications among devices will be essential to give combined information.
With this in mind, BlueThink is also taking part in the development of the infrastructure responsible for effective communications in a complex environment.
The communication system will be developed in order to grant high reliability with low redundancy of gateways. This approach could be leveraged in other sectors with similar needs (e.g. energy production sector), improving safety and, eventually, reducing insurance costs.
