i-Tech 7 has been announced as a finalist in the Digital Transformation category of the 2019 World Oil Awards.

For i-Tech 7, digitalisation is a significant transformation, utilising up to date digital technologies and methods to re-imagine how our services and our clients’ businesses are run. This isn’t about moving to the cloud or automating an existing process; it’s about fully realising the potential of a digital ecosystem to create new ways of working and generate significant efficiencies and savings together with greater insight, enabling better and earlier decisions.

In 2018, i-Tech 7 announced a 5-year digitalisation partnership with Leidos. We chose a partner with multi-sector experience who could apply its cross-industry knowledge to subsea.

Leidos has 50 years’ experience working at the intersection of science, IT and engineering, and brings to i-Tech 7 its wealth of leading-edge expertise delivering complex digital transformation across sectors such as Defence, Aviation, Space, Life Science, Healthcare and Government.

Both companies share similar strengths, values and ambitions, resulting in a strong partnership to fast-track i-Tech 7’s digitalisation offering.

Today, we are proving data automation techniques such as automating cathodic protection inspections or using visual recognition to identify features on a pipeline and automate the engineering analysis of potential problems such as freespans or loss of a strake.

i-Tech 7 is pioneering inspection and intervention services using subsea autonomous ‘drones’. This is based on several key components: ROVs or drones that ‘live’ in the field, effective communication protocols to ensure the safe, reliable control of these systems and automated data systems to maximise efficiency. These on-demand services reduce/eliminate the cost of vessels and the HSE exposure/logistics burden of supporting IMR operations.

As a pioneering subsea partner, i-Tech 7's vision is to develop a fully automated scalable portfolio of digital solutions to increase speed, quality and value for current and future client data requirements. Our platform is designed to integrate with any system and accommodate any technology. Combined with Subsea 7’s EPCI design and installation capabilities, i-Tech 7 offers a very compelling and holistic approach to intelligently manage and extend the full field lifecycle.

The 2019 World Oil Awards Dinner will be held on the 18th October in Houston when the winners will be announced.
