The more complex a pipeline becomes, the more challenging it is to manage problems that drain the bottom line and expose companies to painful publicity and regulatory scrutiny. Leading pipeline operators know the best defense is a good offense: establish the best possible predictive, preventive, and protective measures — and then make sure to have highly trained pipeline controllers in place to implement those measures.
Operator Training Simulators (OTS) based on advanced modeling and simulation tools are essential in both developing a control room management (CRM) plan and in training pipeline controllers. Many leading pipeline operators have found the answer to their training needs in Schneider Electric Pipeline Trainer, built on the SimSuite framework, ensuring knowledge capture and transfer and at the same time improving safety and reducing risk.
Schneider Electric Pipeline Trainer, a part of our Enterprise Pipeline Management Solutions (EPLMS), brings together a suite of applications focused on making sure that the pipeline controller has the required qualifications to manage the expensive pipeline assets they have been designated to operate.
Key capabilities of Pipeline Trainer:
- Ability to model accurately the control logic and malfunctions associated with field devices & SCADA sequencing – giving a more realistic control room response
- Can be used on any type of pipeline due to 2-phase simulation engine (Built on SimSuite framework)
- Ability to provide Generic, Hybrid and Full Scope Trainer
