Transneft Druzhba has commissioned a mobile unit of satellite video surveillance (MUSVS). The unit is designed to provide video broadcasting and video recording on sites of scheduled and emergency recovery works along trunk pipelines.
The MUSVS was developed by the industrial automation centre of Transneft Upper Volga. The use of the mobile unit will make it possible to monitor compliance with industrial safety and occupational health at remote sites.
The unit is to be transported to sites of scheduled repairs and deployed in the field. Video information is transmitted by means of satellite communication via secure channels to the company’s executive office in Bryansk and to business units of the regional executive offices. Specialists monitor and, if necessary, adjust the works progress in real time.
At present, the mobile unit is used in the area of responsibility of the Kuybyshev Regional Directorate of Transneft Druzhba.
