iHawk software selected to digitise new world-scale petrochemical complex

Cyberhawk has been awarded a three-year contract by an oil and gas supermajor to provide a digital asset management solution during the construction of its new world-scale petrochemical complex in the USA.

The main construction phase of the project is already underway, which involves the construction of processing units, cooling towers, rail and truck loading facilities, water treatment plant, office buildings and laboratory at the new petrochemical site.

As part of the construction, the operator sought a comprehensive, detailed software solution which would allow a digitised view of drone (also known as unmanned aerial vehicles) captured data such as orthophotos, spherical images, 3D point cloud models and videos collected on-site on a weekly basis.

Following a rigorous tender process, Cyberhawk was chosen to provide drone content management and distribution services thanks to its industry-leading visual asset management software, iHawk. This intuitive, cloud-based software has been developed to host inspection and survey data from various sources and has industry specific solutions for the wind, utilities, oil and gas and infrastructure sectors.

For this project, iHawk Construction is providing all stakeholders with an up-to-date, at-a-glance visual overview of the project at any given time and from anywhere in the world.

Unlike similar asset management software solutions in the market, the operator was impressed with iHawk’s high level of adaptability and deep industry focus. This meant the software could be customised to meet the client’s detailed requirements, which was a crucial factor in its decision.

iHawk is being now being used by hundreds of engineers, designers, managers and consultants involved in the construction project, in various entities across four continents. It is already proving its worth by improving safety, tracking progress and improving decision making on this complex construction project.

This iHawk solution has been specifically developed to grow as the project progresses, creating a central repository of project information which can be referenced throughout construction as well as once the plant is live.

Chris Fleming, CEO at Cyberhawk said: “Despite having worked with this oil and gas supermajor for the last eight years, in more than eight countries, this is the first time iHawk has been adopted at such large scale. The client was impressed by the functionality offered by iHawk and Cyberhawk’s ability to build on this platform to create a fully customised, bespoke solution for its needs.

“Since launching iHawk in 2014, we have significantly invested in ongoing development to create a world-leading digital asset management solution. Data has become crucial part of the energy sector and whilst collecting detailed information is important, how we use this data to create efficiencies is real objective.

“We are extremely encouraged that our experience and investment in iHawk has been recognised for this important project.”
