Omnisens monitors the temperature of two 45 km cables at Sheringham Shoal windfarm (UK).

Omnisens temperature monitoring was selected for the two 132 kV cables joining the offshore substations to the Salle substation, some 20 km inland, where the Omnisens DITEST interrogator is housed.
Fiber optic cables integrated into the power cables provide continuous temperature monitoring detecting small temperature changes to within a few meters along the whole length of the cables, both onshore and offshore. From the cable temperature various changes in the cable’s condition can be inferred, such as changes in burial depth or sand cover as well as breakdown of insulation due to damage.

New Case Study: Pipeline ground movement detection –retrofit to monitor unstable terrain

Find out how an Omnisens ground movement detection system helps a major South American pipeline operator detect ground movement in an inaccessible area, using an existing telecom cable, a dedicated strain detection cable and a commitment to pipeline integrity monitoring.

Like a Swiss watch…

InlineJean-Christophe, Service Engineer, owes his passion for precision to his roots in the Vallee de Joux, a center for Swiss watch-making. Clients most often meet him during the factory acceptance test of their Omnisens monitoring solution, or during user training.
He configures systems following the project requirements, commenting wryly “Frequently, once the user discovers more about the system’s capabilities post installation, we help them re-configure it to match their operational requirements.” “For customers with service contracts, we plan site visits, help with the analysis of unusual temperature or strain events and check instruments remotely to make sure that everything is working…like clockwork!”
