SGS and Baker Hughes cooperate on predictive corrosion management

SGS and Baker Hughes, a GE company, have announced a Strategic Alliance Agreement (SAA) for the joint deployment and commercialization of BHGE’s real-time software and sensor-based Predictive Corrosion Management (PCM) solution. 

Leveraging the capability of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), PCM will enable asset owners to increase their ability to monitor their facilities, and detect and predict corrosion issues using real-time data powered by BHGE’s ultrasonic sensing technology and advanced analytics. François Marti, SGS Chief Operating Officer North America, and Holger Laubenthal, CEO of Inspection Technologies for BHGE, signed the SAA in the presence of customers and company officials during a recent conference in Houston.

François Marti said: “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.”

PCM generates wall thickness and temperature measurements from Rightrax PM ultrasonic sensors placed on critical equipment such as pipes, tanks, and vessels. The solution applies advanced analytics, resulting in real-time assessment of data that has traditionally been gathered through risky and time consuming manual inspections. While particularly valuable to oil and gas downstream, petrochemical, and upstream asset operators, PCM can help any industry segment challenged by corrosion-related risk. PCM is one essential tool to help asset owners benefit from enhanced plant reliability and integrity programs, while maximizing operational safety and extending asset life.

“PCM is one of our core offerings to help customers make the invisible, visible,” said Holger Laubenthal, CEO of Inspection Technologies for BHGE. “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. This agreement will play a key role in improving safety, reducing equipment downtime, and improving operations for our customers globally.”
