Intrinsically safe operational efficiency and cost reduction

The challenge

CEPSA´s challenge was to enable remote visits and technical assistance to their worldwide facilities while complying with Health, Safety and Environment regulations. By means of intrinsically safe devices, CEPSA has been able to reduce people’s physical exposure to potential risks, avoid unproductive time and travel costs, obtain direct savings and firsthand valuable information to speed up the decision-making process and increase their operations’ efficiency.

Solution

Remote Expertise is a complete, tailor-made solution, designed by Wideum and CEPSA, that enables field workers with innovative technology in order to improve their daily activities and get them ready for the future.

Now the solution is open and available to everyone who wants to safely enjoy all its benefits with a positive direct impact on your company’s income statement.

Cepsa

Cepsa is a global energy company based in Spain and with presence across five continents. With more than 10,000 professionals, it operates across the entire oil and gas value chain (upstream & downstream), as well as, in chemical business and energy generation, among others. Cepsa is committed to energy as a source of progress; they are working hard to find new ways to utilize it, constantly innovating so as to offer the best service in a more sustainable way.

What is an Intrinsically Safe device?

Intrinsically safe electronics allow for safe operation in hazardous areas by limiting the electrical or thermal energy available for ignition.

ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres – Directive 99/92/EC (also known as ‘ATEX 137’) and Directive 94/9/EC (also known as ‘ATEX 95’).

Elements

Our solution is made of three key elements that allow full communication between field technicians and remote support departments to improve efficiency in site inspections with remote support glasses or intrinsically safe mobiles.

Software

Remote Expertise is a customized design of Remote eye.

It takes full advantage of Intrinsically Safe Devices by placing the management of information on the remote expert’s side, freeing up the field technician to concentrate on the task at hand while remaining adaptable to your company’s specific needs.


Hardware

CEPSA, always using the most advanced and reliable technology today, employs the RealWear smart glasses HMT-1Z1 and a wireless connectivity device, both of which are intrinsically safe, to aid their workers.

Using smart glasses versus a handheld device improves the safety conditions for field workers and increases their mobility during remote visits. Remote Expertise can also be installed on other intrinsically safe devices like smartphones.
