Calgary, Alberta – Rigstar Industrial Telecom (“Rigstar”), is a privately held carrier that provides full life cycle communication services to organizations with expansive and remote network requirements. Rigstar has been installing and delivering Telecom services for close to 20 years.
Pipelines have played an intricate role in transporting materials for the past 100 years. It is estimated that 4,500,000 km of pipeline operate within 120 countries around the world. The pipeline industry continues to make improvements for safely transporting their goods and materials. Advancements in technology have assisted with mitigation against potential pipeline leaks and tampering. Rigstar’s fiber-based leak detection system allows for real-time monitoring and is designed to immediately detect a disruption along the pipeline. The system utilizes three (3) Distributed Sensing Systems (DxS) that can measure specific parameters which include temperature, acoustic and strain. The DxS systems are designed to withstand the most extreme conditions in any environment. Installing fiber along a pipeline has several benefits that range from leak detection to delivering remote communications. “Providing a reliable and robust solution has always been one of our core values,” said Dan Grisdale, CEO of Rigstar Industrial Telecom. “Rigstar is very pleased to introduce and showcase this innovative system that will not only benefit the environment and pipeline companies, but remote communities as well. Organizations will have the capabilities to remotely monitor their pipeline in real-time and accurately detect a leak within seconds. Rigstar will be able to deliver a tailored solution that aligns with a company’s specific requirements. With all our safety certification, procedures and policies in place our team is confident in our ability to provide a reliable pipeline leak detection system.
