Fiber optic sensing for sensitive pipeline, concrete, and subsea cable applications

The use of distributed sensing is on the rise….In a case study prepared by Fotech, an international provider of advanced infrastructure monitoring technology, an offshore cable operator identified a fault in its cable infrastructure for an offshore windfarm. The operator used Fotech’s proprietary DAS technology to identify the fault and pinpoint its location so it could quickly conduct mitigation and repair activities. The technology pinpoints activity down to just five meters, using optical fibers already present alongside power cables to detect vibrations caused by threats.
