On Thursday, the premier Indian Institute of Technology-Madras research institute said it had developed a large database management software system that would collect structural and design data for Oil and Natural Gas Corporation to reduce their maintenance and maintenance costs. rehabilitation of offshore oil platforms.
The “Structural Integrity Management System” (SIMS) software was developed by the Offshore Structures Group of the Ocean Engineering Department of IIT Madras.
“It has an extensive database management system containing crucial structural and other design-related data information that can be retrieved with a click, saving CGSB time and tremendous effort,” a press release read.
The director of IIT-Madras, Prof. V Kamakoti, handed over the system to the director of ONGC (offshore) Pankaj Kumar during an event on Thursday.
The installation would be implemented by ONGC with access to various stakeholders such as the Institute of Ocean Engineering and Technology, offshore assets, offshore engineering services and inspection, maintenance and repair teams from CGSB.
“I am sure this software will contribute to ‘Atmanirbhar’ which is very important. Today, tons and tons of your personal data goes overseas. This contribution from IIT Madras is extremely important to prevent the dissemination of CGSB data. This data, if collected in a streamlined way for a few years, can help in the development of indigenous start-ups capable of developing Atmanirbhar technologies,” Kamakoti said.
The structural integrity management system is a very important system. Besides the oil that the CGSB is drilling, it is also drilling data, which is extremely important, he said.
“Real-time sensors can allow inspection every second, instead of periodic frequencies. We can also develop AI and ML tools to predict when inspections would be needed,” said CGSB Manager (Offshore), Pankaj Kumar, “IIT Madras has been up front -keeping the development of indigenous technologies and delivery solutions demanded by the industry. We collaborate with the IIT Madras Ocean Engineering department which has contributed to the development of high-end technical solutions in the field of offshore areas. “This particular SIMS software is an example of the Aatmanirbhar Bharat – Digital India outcome, in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision, is an excellent industry-academia collaborative effort…” he said.
IIT Madras Professor and Head of Department of Ocean Engineering S Nallayarasu, CGSB officials and other IIT Madras researchers and professors were present on the occasion.
