Despite fiber optics being used for telecommunications for decades and in the sensing worlds for more than 20 years already, many in certain industries still see it as a new technology without a track record. For Etienne Rochat, Chief Technology Officer at Omnisens
Ørsted and Omnisens have signed a framework agreement for the supply of fiber optic-based power cable monitoring solutions for Ørsted’s future offshore wind farms. The 5+ year framework agreement covers the integrity and performance monitoring of export cables of all offshore wind farms....
CTO Etienne Rochat presented the Symposium "Combining Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) and Dynamic Cable Rating (DCR) as an efficient means of managing submarine cable load" during the CIGRE conference in Denmark in June.
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA), the world’s premier fiber optic sensing trade association, released details on more than 1,300 installations of distributed fiber optic sensing (DFOS) around the world. The November 2107 data reflects the largest representative sample ever published.
FOSA officer slate for 2018: Greg Williams, Prysmian, was elected to the Board, and Geoffroy Lacoin, Omnisens, Gordon Youle, OZ Optics, and Vivek Caroli, Frauscher Sensor Technology USA, Inc. were reelected, to serve 2-year terms. Mike Hines Mike Hines of OFS, rose from Vice Chair to Chair.
