If you have a question about this talk, please contact Louise Rushworth.

We will hear from speakers from BP, who use a variety of technologies to monitor closely the state of their pipelines, which can be several thousands of kilometers long, and from Plextek who develop a number of monitoring technologies. The speakers will talk about the issues and challenges they face and future possible developments.

Speakers include:

Dr Norman Sanderson, Advisor – Pipeline Technology, BP Norman is a mechanical engineer with a strong remit to develop technologies that enable the interface between our pipeline systems and the outside world to be closely managed. This ranges from satellite surveillance through sniffer dogs to leak detection on pipeline systems, and also includes detecting illegal taps. The talk will include an overview of the major challenges in his work and an invitation for attendees to suggest potential solutions.

Will Gibson (pictured), Co-Founder of Telensa, a new spin-out from Plextek Plextek provides an electronics design and consultancy service, specialising in product and system design for communications, aerospace, defence and medical applications. In January 2010, they span out a new venture, Telensa Ltd, that is focused on the commercialisation of a cost effective wireless system for actively controlling, monitoring and metering large populations of outdoor street lights, so they can be managed with maximum energy and operational efficiency. Will’s talk will highlight some of the challenges he’s faced in applying known monitoring technologies to specific situations that arose in Telensa.
