Hiber Launches HiberHilo a Subscription Based IoT Solution as Organisations Operating Remotely Call for Simple Solutions Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
Jasper Fassaert | November 02, 2020
Dutch satellite Internet-of-Things (IoT) solution startup, Hiber, today announces the launch of HiberHilo, its first start to finish solution for Oil and Gas Well Integrity Monitoring. HiberHilo is also the world's first membership administration for IoT-enabled far off Oil/Gas Well checking and the company will present similar administrations for other explicit use cases in 2021.
There is a developing demand for far off observing in enterprises, for example, Oil and Gas to create more sustainable and environmentally benevolent practices, especially with COVID-19 restricting travel halting routine maintenance checks. Be that as it may, the IoT SaaS market in this space is nascent and lacks straightforwardness. Having already been one of the primary firms to build up a far off IoT network solution with the launch of its proprietary nano-satellites in 2018, Hiber distinguished the dire requirement for readily available out-the-case start to finish membership based offerings. These must be planned bespoke for particular use cases, as well as being basic and productive for organizations to install and actualize.
The HiberHilo solution for Oil and Gas Well Integrity Monitoring is the principal offering of this sort that Hiber will launch because this cycle is presently mind boggling, tedious and costly (costing up to $40,000 per field visit). Additionally, manual checking is inclined to mistake and is often not directed much of the time enough.
Observing is critical to guarantee that anomalies are distinguished early and addressed - this can incorporate potential leaks which, whenever left unaddressed, can impact individuals' health and safety as well as negatively impact the climate. HiberHilo's out-of-the-case membership solution uses Hiber's global satellite organization to engage organizations to automate ceaseless annulus weight and wellhead observing of up to 250 wells in a radius of 10km, even in the most distant locations on Earth. Valuing starts at $449 every month per well (1 sensor and a 5 year contract).
The all-in-one product is available as both a starter kit and in the form of an enterprise solution, both of which feature:
A pressure and optional temperature sensor to ensure accurate and regular measurements - organisations can add more sensors to the network if required
Easy connectivity anywhere, sending up to 24 messages a day or one per hour
Alarm and alert settings
An intuitive dashboard for desktop and mobile
Support both on-site and via mobile
Coen Janssen, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Hiber said, “We are excited to launch this first-of-its-kind IoT proposition for remote monitoring at a time when it is needed more than ever. HiberHilo has already been proven by Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM) and Royal Dutch Shell (better known as just “Shell”) on an abandoned on-shore well. This technology can be installed in less than 2 hours and within 0.25% accuracy levels of a traditional wired system, which is extremely reliable.”
“We look forward to more companies embracing this new proposition as it will save them time, money and lives by allowing teams to monitor well integrity from home as well as reducing the risk of well integrity issues to create more sustainable practices. The future for remote monitoring is very bright!”
Hiber entered the market in 2018 purely as a connectivity provider, utilising its own proprietary nano-satellite technology to unlock IoT connectivity in the 90% of the world without it.
Hiber is an Internet of Things (IoT) solution startup, founded and led by a dream team of satellite experts and tech entrepreneurs. These 'Hibernauts' are working on a moonshoot goal: to launch and provide end-to-end IoT solutions connected by satellites in space. More than 55 employees work on the ground-breaking technology behind Hiber and Hiberband at its offices in the Netherlands and USA.
