“We can use remote technology on a number of applications within our typical engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract. The technology is ready, and I personally believe that now is the time to start using it seriously,” said Lino Papetti , head of post order management, E&C onshore, Saipem.
“This could include almost all the equipment and bulk material that we traditionally inspect,” he added. “As a contractor, we increasingly have to expedite and inspect lower tiers of our supply chain to ensure a timely and quality delivery to our projects. We believe that remote inspection will make it easier to achieve this goal, with benefits on mobility, safety, and sustainability.”
