PIPELINE INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
IRM Systems implements Pipeline Integrity Management Systems (PIMS) and currently develops a predictive software support tool called PPIMS. This unique tool is designed to be ‘lean’ and simple to operate yet on the other hand will provide novel and valuable features.
PPIMS will be able to manage and combine datasets from various sources which provides the operator with a high degree of flexibility when choosing service providers. Furthermore, it will include a Predictive Analysis Algorithm allowing for predictions on deterioration development and consequent input for amending maintenance and service intervals. A unique tool that allows operators to improve control and make smarter decisions.
IRM Systems brings PIMS to a higher level.

Pipeline Integrity Management System for Glass-Reinforced Plastic Pipelines
Qatar’s North Field is the site of Dolphin Energy’s major project. The U.A.E.-based company produces and processes gas here, before transporting it back to the U.A.E., and to Oman. A pipeline system was installed to transport water for processing purposes, and was made of GRP. Though GRP pipelines do not corrode like steel pipelines, they experienced degradation due to the unique topography of the desert landscape. When in 2015 these pipelines showed signs of leakage, IRM Systems used their pipeline integrity services – using their unique PIMS software – to ensure this did not happen again. Read more.
