Real-Time Asset Management: Turnarounds and Plant Maintenance

Struggling to meet performance expectations during turnarounds? We’ve got you covered. Digitize operational inspections and workflows to streamline processes, save staff hours, and slash asset downtime.


Imagine running smoother operations and hitting your goals effortlessly. Dive into our blog to see how real-time visibility coupled with digitized work processes can transform your turnaround performance and keep your assets running at their best. Let's explore how Syook can make your operations more efficient and productive!


Asset Tracking


Improving operational performance has always been a top goal for asset-heavy industries like oil & gas, mining, manufacturing, and petrochemical sectors. However, lack of visibility, inconsistent data and disconnected business processes often hinder the ability to plan and execute major turnarounds effectively. Operators struggle to get a clear, real-time overview of the risks, activities, and processes involved, making it difficult to manage outcomes and ensure safety.


Syook addresses this challenge by seamlessly integrating data and processes across the organization. With Syook InSite's real-time dashboards and reports, you gain the clarity needed to understand trade-offs and manage outcomes properly. This empowers you to secure the safety of your plant, protect your workers, and stay within budget, all while optimizing your turnaround performance.


Optimizing Pipeline Inspections in Oil and Gas


The challenge for one of our Oil and Gas clients was to efficiently manage and inspect O&G pipelines between Surat and Vadodara in Gujarat. These pipelines, spanning approximately 100 kilometers and carried both crude oil and water, required regular and accurate inspections to ensure continuous and safe operation. 48 workers manually inspected assigned segments daily from 06:00 to 14:00 hours. Key challenges:


-          accurately plotting and visualizing the pipelines

-          tracking worker movements

-          managing inspection routes

-          ensure worker compliance

-          generating comprehensive attendance and inspection reports.


To tackle these challenges, Syook InSite IoT platform offered both cloud service and on-premises options for flexibility and scalability. The solution integrated GPS asset tracking with centralized worker activity management. GPS tags were assigned to each line walker which will transmit real-time geolocation data, allowing for efficient asset management and historical data viewing. By plotting the pipelines and creating geo clusters for worker geofencing and inspection management, the platform will generate real time alerts and compliance reports for breached geofences, enhancing worker safety and accountability.


The implementation of Syook InSite's IoT platform significantly improved worker management and inspection efficiency. Real-time tracking of worker movements and attendance based on GPS data streamlined inspection routes and provided backup plans for reassignments. Further, ongoing technical support and remote helpdesk services will ensured continuous operation. This integrated approach not only enhanced accuracy of pipeline inspections but also ensured safety and accountability of workers, offering our client a robust solution for their pipeline management needs.
