BHGE and SGS sign PCM agreement

Bake Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) has entered into a strategic alliance with SGS for the deployment and commercialisation of BHGE’s real-time software and sensor-based Predictive Corrosion Management (PCM).

Leveraging the capability of the Internet of Things, PCM enables asset owners to increase their ability to monitor their facilities and detect and predict corrosion issues using real-time data powered by the BHGE’s ultrasonic sensing technology and advanced analytics.

PCM generates wall thickness and temperature measurements from Rightrax PM ultrasonic sensors placed on critical equipment such as pipes, tanks and vessels.

The product applies advanced analytics, resulting in real-time assessment of data that has traditionally been gathered through risky and time consuming manual inspections.

SGS North America Chief Operating Officer François Marti and BHGE CEO of Inspection Technologies Holger Laubenthal signed the agreement recently in Houston, Texas.

“This partnership with BHGE will enable SGS to broaden its asset integrity service offering with advanced digital inspection solutions that will greatly benefit our oil and gas clients,” said Mr Marti.

Mr Laubenthal said PCM is one of the company’s main offerings to help customers “make the invisible, visible”.

“We are looking forward to working with SGS to accelerate deployment of PCM, a predictive digital solution that is becoming a benchmark for corrosion monitoring across several industries,” he said.

“This agreement will play a key role in improving safety, reducing equipment downtime, and improving operations for our customers globally.”
