Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces the release of the Enterprise Pipeline Management Solution (EPMS), a modular software suite that is the product of over 20 years of practical experience in implementing pipeline management solutions across the globe.
Developed for deployment at the heart of the pipeline operations management environment, the EPMS supplements the basic pipeline management system with specific gas and liquid applications that enable a pipeline operator to manage delivery contracts and associated logistics in a time and energy efficient manner. With a SCADA platform covering monitoring, alarming, trending, and reporting, the EPMS handles functions such as metering, batch scheduling & tracking, leak detection, and energy management within the same unified user environment.
Many pipeline systems in use today have been tailored to suit a specific set of circumstances and lack both a standard system foundation for supporting pluggable application modules and a core design that ensures interoperability with enterprise IT environments and policies. The maintenance and upgrade of tailor-made applications, and their often complex system architectures to protect them from breaches and security compromises, poses increasing challenges for pipeline operators.
1. Unified user environment based on a modular design
2. Contextual online integrity management
3. Reduced energy consumption
4. Less product waste at batch delivery points
5. Enhanced gas and liquid metering
