Eni's innovative technology is available today
Eni, with the technical support of SolAres, developed e-vpms®: the vibroacoustic monitoring technology for remote real-time monitoring of Oil & Gas pipelines.
Through a limited set of vibroacoustic stations and a central processing unit, the system can monitor hundreds of kilometres of pipeline against intrusions, spillages and impacts.
e-vpms® is based on the analysis of vibroacoustic waves propagating through the pipeline: when an intrusion threat or spillage attempt is performed, the generated waves propagate for kilometers within the pipelines and are recordered by the e-vpms® stations.
Hundreds of e-vpms® monitoring stations installed worldwide are currently ensuring secure and reliable operations for Oil & Gas pipelines.
