Wireless sensor networks for structural health monitoring in Oil & Gas platform

Oil & Gas platforms are vulnerable to damage as they are continuously subjected to extreme weather, dynamic forces and accumulated fatigue damage. Wireless sensors can be solutions for cost-efficient health monitoring in such remote and inaccessible area, hence offers possibilities to extend the lifetime of the platform as long as the reserve is still producing. This article provides case study and applications of wireless sensor networks from BeanAir for one of the major oil & gas company in the world, Total.
