Platform Simulates Pipeline Network

Elsyca V-PIMS is a graphical simulation platform for the integrity management of pipeline networks with respect to external corrosion. The platform simulates and visualizes the CP health status of the entire network based on known design information. Correlating the simulation results with measured field data at test stations allows tracing anomalies in the CP operation, adapting rectifier currents for optimum protection, as well as analyzing and monitoring time-bound effects. The platform supports pipeline operators in complying with prescribed governmental requirements, such as the Dutch norm NTA 8000 and US ASME B31.8S. , with respect to integri
