Fault finding in cables using traditional route surveying methods is expensive, time-intensive and does not provide real-time monitoring….Fotech’s distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) technology enables much faster fault detection and repair
Fotech, a bp Launchpad company, looks at the challenges associated with monitoring subsea power cables and how Fotech’s novel distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) technology enables offshore wind farms to better manage their networks to achieve improved operational efficiencies
Launchpad has bought a technology company that focuses on developing and deploying fiber optic sensing. Fotech’s technology combines photonics, advanced artificial intelligence and edge computing to deliver advanced digital monitoring and asset management solutions
Chris Shannon, Chief Executive of Fotech, commented: “We are excited to have a new investor at this pivotal point in Fotech’s growth story. Fiber optic sensing solutions have proven themselves invaluable in protecting pipelines, perimeters and borders around the world....
