How to Optimize Tank Maintenance Using Effective Digitalization Strategies

Gecko Robotics, May 15, 2024

Webinar Overview

Tank farm optimization and digitization strategies often fail without high-quality, full-coverage data as the starting point. Incomplete or inaccurate inspection data can cause misguided maintenance efforts and lead to asset failure, unplanned downtime, environmental remediation, and stressful turnarounds.

An effective digitalization strategy requires high-quality data inputs. Sophisticated hardware tools, including robotics and fixed sensors, collect accurate, precise, and timely data to feed algorithms that inform digital twins and predictive models for optimizing tank maintenance.

Join us as Inspectioneering teams up with Gecko Robotics for our webinar, “How to Optimize Tank Maintenance Using Effective Digitalization Strategies.” In this webinar, Ron Preston from Gecko Robotics walks through effective tank digitalization strategies that enable decision-makers to understand current tank health, forecast corrosion rates, calculate repair costs, and prioritize maintenance across the entire fleet.
