From distribution system operational and maintenance concerns to integrity management, safety and compliance, natural gas operators face many critical challenges. Trimble's Energy suite of advanced solutions empower natural gas operators to meet these challenges head on.
Gas utilities can leverage an end-to-end Trimble data collection application toolset for natural gas utility operators to meet regulatory requirements while standardizing and optimizing field data collection processes and digital as-builting captured by crews and contractors.
Trimble’s remote pressure monitoring leverages versatile instruments intended to monitor gas system pressures. The combined remote monitoring hardware and software application toolset, is a powerful gas pressure monitoring solution that delivers real-time data from the field to the office.
Trimble’s mobile field application enables natural gas utilities field staff to access real-time and complete data on network assets. In addition, up-to-date information is shared between to office staff and the field staff to support on-time decision making and monitoring the progress of the field.
At the heart of the Trimble's technology for natural gas utilities is an fully connected intelligent utility network model that offers complete lifecycle support for network objects and assets, all from a single database. Trimble's gas network model and utility GIS functionality supports a utility's business operations.
Trimble’s Smart Leak Management toolset standardizes the data collection process across multiple mobile platforms and multiple contractor organizations. Eliminate paper-based surveys and quickly and accurately capture auditable leak survey data through an integrated field to office system that streamlines surveys and improved survey productivity.
Trimble’s integrated outage, incident and event management solution enables natural gas utility operators to model and simulate outage planning, streamline service restoration workflows, automate communications during service interruptions, and enhance Distribution Integrity Management Plan (DIMP) reporting.
With Trimble’s augmented reality solution, view 3D utility models and assets in true-to-life scale, in the context of their existing surroundings - from any angle or position - for better context, understanding and communication.
Trimble’s advanced analytics and QA/QC engine enables gas operators to aggregate and analyze compliance data collected by crews and contractors in the field.
