1. One of the greatest threats to the Downstream Process Industry and Offshore Oil and Gas is downtime associated with maintaining compressors, pumps and other critical assets. Optech4D provides mobile solutions to visualize asset part assemblies (3D explosion diagrams, part identification and ordering, simulations) to assist operators in understanding the complexities of critical machinery. Training with the help of these tools allows less experienced engineers and operators to be on top of maintenance schedules, reduce breakdowns and increase efficiency.

  2. Optech4D provides training technologies within the Oil and Gas Industries, both upstream and downstream, through its 3D Full Immersion Training Simulator (FITS)™, a real time simulation training platform. Virtual reality simulation is particularly well-suited for use in upstream E&P as well as downstream petrochemical, where remote and unsafe locations are increasingly common. This type of technology enables operators to receive a majority of their training in a virtual environment, which can significantly reduce cost and risk.

  3. Shutting down a portion of an onshore or offshore facility for servicing, maintenance or repair can be a dangerous venture if not done correctly. Throughout the world, every day, individuals are put at risk, equipment is destroyed and in some cases lives are lost because these procedures are not followed. Providing effective training technology, 3D Simulators save time, money and lives. As well, this same 3D technology, on mobile devices in the field, can insure that every Lockout/Tagout step is successfully completed, dramatically reducing human error.

Optech4D is short for “Operational Technologies 4D” where the 4th dimension is that of time (driving operational excellence, reducing downtime and saving money). The company provides software as a service (SaaS) for day-to-day operations, maintenance, and health and safety, to the Oil and Gas industry, as well as complementary industries such as nuclear, aerospace, aviation, and construction. Optech4D’s goal is to drive adoption of technological advancements within these industries, bringing together software with the latest in wireless and wearable computing.

A major cause of incidents in oil and gas, and one of the biggest obstacles to overcome, is ensuring useful information reaches the workforce in a timely manner. By enabling context-aware transfer of data, documentation and real-time updates to field personnel, Optech4D’s SafeBeacon platform provides a demonstrably effective means of enhancing productivity and reducing cost. Current applications of the SafeBeacon technology include:

- SafeBeacon for Maintenance
- SafeBeacon for Inspection
- SafeBeacon for Operator Location and Man Down
- SafeBeacon for Lockout-tagout
- SafeBeacon for Confined Space

With its Full Immersion Training Simulator (FITS) software, Optech4D is also aiding in the preservation of critical knowledge across a retiring technical workforce. By embedding best practices and the experience of countless engineers, virtual training provides a way for personnel to make mistakes and learn from them in a safe environment, ensuring higher retention rates and lowering the potential for critical errors in the workplace.

Optech4D is also aiming to drive adoption of technological advancements within the industry. Optech4D's hardware and software products are fully compatible with a variety of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) and the latest in wearable hardware. This includes Augmented Reality headsets (interactive safety glasses, primarily used for operations), and Virtual Reality technology (for training), which enhance the user experience and boost efficiency while remaining cost-effective and easy to implement.
