Enabling the Best by Preparing for the Worst: Lessons from Disaster Response for Industrial IoT in Oil & Gas

<< Previous    Next >>

What do an earthquake and an oil refinery have in common?

Both are combustible environments where having the safest and most efficient communications equipment can make all the difference “when every second counts.” Whether in an emergency or everyday critical industrial operations, first responders or critical personnel must have real-time communication with their teams in order to save lives and prevent catastrophes.

Aegex Technologies CEO Thomas Ventulett will explain during a presentation at the ADIPEC 2018 conference and exhibition how testing technologies in austere environments under emergency situations can result in better R&D for products and equip teams with the tools they need to drive higher productivity. Ventulett will present the results of Operation Convergent Response that took place in 2017 and again Nov. 5-8, 2018. #OCR2017 and #OCR2018 brought more than 100 technology companies together to demonstrate during live, realistic disaster scenarios innovations that can assist first responders during emergencies. This realistic testing proved beneficial for improving technologies for industrial use and for increasing collaboration among technology vendors.

If you are attending ADIPEC 2018, come and hear Ventulett’s Technical Session discussion, “Enabling the Best by Preparing for the Worst: Lessons from Disaster Response for Industrial IoT in Oil & Gas,” on Monday, Nov. 12, at 12:10 in Capital Suite 8.
