July 5, 2023
Atlantic Controls, a division of Laurentide, is thrilled to announce the launch of its Remote Asset Health Monitoring Center. Created in collaboration with the Government of Newfoundland and funded by the Offshore Oil & Gas Industry Recovery Assistance Fund (OGIRA), this state-of-the-art facility is equipped with advanced monitoring equipment, technologies, and training facilities to help industry thrive in Eastern Canada.

Monitoring Critical Assets in Real Time

Remote asset health monitoring, also called remote condition monitoring, replaces in-person field readings of asset health data with constant, remote monitoring via connected sensors linked to a gateway and software.

The Remote Asset Health Monitoring Center is dedicated to monitoring the condition of critical plant assets such as valves, instruments, pumps, rotating equipment, and more. With this center, Atlantic Controls and Laurentide aim to help plants detect problems in real time, before they affect the flexibility or reliability of their operations.
