“This data acquisition and data visualization platform is a unique tool that allows us to visualize any trend with time and even superimposed trends with time, something impossible to do before,” said Laurent David, Director of Technology Development Engineering, Aker BioMarine. “With data processing, we will benefit from the huge quantity of mass flow-meter we have in the Houston plant. In the future, we will be able to make daily mass balance, meaning that we will be able to master our daily consumption. In the past we had to wait a month to detect problems and now we have access to daily data. Finally, we will soon have the capability of connecting info from our vessel in Antarctica to the Houston plant.”
