Rocsole Ltd has announced it has become the first Finnish company to win the Spotlight on New Technology Award. It was presented at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC).

In response to the news, CEO Mika Tienhaara said: “This is a great recognition to the technology development Rocsole has been working on the past years with a variety of oil and gas customers.”

Rocsole said in the statement announcing the win: “the key to this success is the patented Liquid In-Tank Inspection (LITI) product. Tomographic imaging has not been commonly used in the industry for scanning vessels for water, oil, emulsion or gas layers before.”

It added: “Rocsole has developed a game changing solution that brings various benefits. With the LITI product it is possible to provide full profiles of vessels with no radiation. This means it’s safe for both the environment and the user.”

The product also brings “continuously valuable and trustworthy” data of tanks and separators even in very challenging conditions. It said this gives an advantage in optimising production in multiple ways.

CTO Arto Voutilainen added: “The LITI Tank Profiler works just as well as any nucleonic devices, but without the typical cost and risks associated with the use of nucleonic devices. In addition, we provide continuous real-time data meaning that we can provide AI powered predictive analytics for these sub-processes with our capabilities.”

The LITI Tank Profiler main features are:

  • Accurate detection of location, thickness and conductivity of different layers
  • Works with gases, liquids, emulsions, sludge and solids
  • Continuous data, real-time monitoring
  • Works even with contaminated sensor surfaces
  • Easy to install, safe to operate has no moving parts and is field calibration free
  • Images and trends available through a web-based user interface

The services are preferably offered as a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) model.
