Innovative time synchronisation

Innovative time synchronisation

SVT's solution saves client time and money.

Client: Large onshore gas plant

Tough Problem: The client was having problems with their time synchronisation of records from their farm of condition monitoring servers.

The vendor solution was a new software component but with additional acquisition and implementation costs.

As integrity of the time element of data recording is crucial — any data loss creates the potential for significant events to be missed — a quick resolution was required to avoid compromise of the safety and protection of the plant.

Practical Solution: SVT provided a quick "value-added" technical solution using NTP (Network Time Protocol), which provided time synchronisation for all current and future servers. This fix allowed the entire condition monitoring system for the plant to operate reliably as any safety monitoring system should.

Bottom Line: An innovative solution saved the client time and money.
