Wireless Communications Solution for Refineries

Wireless communications and specialized applications are transforming oil and gas refinery operations. Real-time data and video from remote operations can be efficiently accessed and processed, enabling intelligent process control applications that significantly lower production costs.

Oil and gas refinery companies are using advanced technologies to solve challenges such as the inability to monitor surrounding environments in real-time, determine staff location, or share live inspection information. Other issues include lack of collaboration and inefficient decision-making using separate wired and wireless dispatch systems and unreliable communications with no real-time, on-site status.

Huawei’s Wireless Communications Solution for Refineries solves these challenges and provides live, efficient communications and collaboration for oil and gas facilities. It provides a 4G LTE broadband network to enable innovative sub-solutions, including: Wireless meter reading, visual dispatch, video surveillance, personnel positioning, intelligent inspection for improved visual communications and effective collaboration.

  • Visual Dispatch and Efficient Collaboration

    Multimedia trunking provides daily voice dispatch such as point-to-point, group call, busy line interrupts, forced release, and video intercom services. The system also enables real-time video browsing to improve communications efficiency, track personnel, and implement emergency command. The trunking system provides open interfaces to connect third-party dispatch systems, including TETRA, to deliver a high ROI.

  • Wireless Surveillance and Flexible Terminal Deployment

    For security and workload, wired deployment does not provide surveillance coverage in remote locations (docks or rivers), temporary engineering sites, or large oil tanks. In these cases, Huawei uses its eLTE solution. Sensors and cameras are flexibly deployed and connect to the LTE system through industrial gateways and customer-provided equipment to allow real-time surveillance.
  • Precise Personnel Positioning Ensures Employee Safety

    Personnel, device, and vehicle positioning as well as monitoring are essential to health, safety, and environmental management. Location information can be obtained outdoors through GPS or indoors using Zigbee. It is transmitted by portable smart terminals to the control center through the LTE network. Personnel, devices, and vehicles are precisely located using GIS positioning to ensure employee safety.

  • Intelligent Inspection Improves Quality

    Handheld smart terminals use the Android operating system so an inspection application can be developed to perform positioning, take photos, and record on-site data. Recorded data is transmitted to the service platform through the LTE network. If necessary, frontline personnel can interact with experts and download documents to help facilitate device and site inspection, improve collaboration efficiency, and ensure inspection quality.
