Pipeline integrity and safety are the main objectives in the operation of a pipeline.
Furthermore error-free and economical operation is important.
Many of today's pipelines are in operation for decades and the increasingly aging
infrastructure leads to a number of risk factors.
The implementation time for a SCADA system is insignificantly short compared to the
lifetime of a pipeline. During the design and construction phase of a pipeline, neither
the SCADA engineering nor the basic engineering can cover all tasks, opportunities
and risks that operators will face during the life cycle.
Therefore, it is extremely important during the entire pipeline lifecycle to provide the
operating and maintenance personnel with tools which enable the continuous
optimization of the pipeline process - against the background of changing conditions
and a changing piping system.
Systems that accompany all phases of the life cycle and adapt to the changing
