FFT selected to monitor border pipeline for TPI

FFT will soon be protecting a 40km stretch of pipeline located in the border region of Colombia and Venezuela.

The Aura Ai Platform will monitor a new buried pipeline for third party interference including digging, tapping, and tampering before any breach or damage can occur.

With FFT technology already successfully protecting infrastructure owned by this national oil and gas producer, the customer proactively installed fibre optic cable along the pipeline as part of the deployment process. Commissioning is now underway.

Simple to install, intrinsically safe and virtually maintenance free, FFT delivers a cost-effective pipeline protection solution with the highest probability of detection and lowest nuisance alarm rate.

FFT selected to protect critical pipeline infrastructure

FFT has been selected to monitor a health of a pipeline located at 4,500 meters above sea level (masl) and provide early detection and warning of any potential rupture. 

Critical to the mining operation, the 88km carbon steel pipe will carry river water to the Papujune copper processing plant and nearby 60 million m3 Vizcachas dam. 

Located in the Moquegua region in southern Peru, the Quellaveco project has been developed by Anglo American in partnership with the Mitsubishi Corporation. 

FFT’s global expertise in pipeline monitoring and previous experience working with Anglo American were key factors in securing the challenging project.

Now in commercial operation, the mine is expected to deliver 300,000 MT of copper per year over the next 10 years – with an expected lifespan of 36 years.

Protecting critical pipeline infrastructure in Turkey

FFT’s Aura Platform is currently being installed to protect critical pipeline infrastructure in Turkey. This is the third and final phase of a contract which will result in FFT’s perimeter intrusion detection technology installed on a total of six high security sites.

Recognised for delivering fibre optic-based solutions second to none, FFT’s technology was selected to replace a copper-based intrusion detection system which was plagued with performance issues due to the extreme weather conditions. False alarms also resulted in a loss of confidence and prompted the pipeline operator to switch to FFT’s solution – which is also being used to protect Turkey’s Istanbul Airport.

With exceptional event classification accuracy – unmatched by any other commercial system – and a proven track record, FFT’s fibre optic PIDS remain the solution of choice for protecting critical infrastructure in the most challenging environments.

FFT Aura Ai selected to protect additional European oil facilities

With FFT’s perimeter intrusion detection technology already installed at a number of its facilities, a European oil company is capitalising on the long range capabilities of the Aura Ai platform to not only protect the main refinery of a new site, but also outlying water plants using a single controller.

Configured to provide cut resilience and redundancy, FFT Aura Ai-2 accurately detects and locates climbing, cutting or lifting of perimeter fences to within +/- 2 m over distances of up to 80 km – with the lowest nuisance alarm rate.

With no electronics or power in the field and immune to EMI, RFI & lightning, Aura Ai-2 is intrinsically safe, making it the ideal solution for the global energy sector.
