MOBILTEX WINS PIPELINE & GAS JOURNAL 2021 CORROSION TECHNOLOGY AWARDNovember 22, 2021
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Calgary, Alberta, Canada – MOBILTEX [an XPV Water Partners company] today announced it has been awarded the Inaugural Pipeline & Gas Journal Award for the CorTalk RMU1+INT1 platform in the category Best Coating/Corrosion Advancement Technology. Winners were honored in 11 categories which encompassed all aspects of the midstream industry, including safety innovation, maintenance and management technology, pipeline integrity, digital transformation, innovative thought and lifetime achievement. The CorTalk RMU1-LITE, was also selected as a finalist in the category of Best Advance in Maintenance Technology Award.
The CorTalk RMU1+INT1 package will enable utilities and pipeline operators to remotely perform interruption, obtain cathodic protection (CP) measurement data and dramatically reduce travel to remote locations to perform manual inspections and to conduct measurements of CP systems with an industry-leading battery life that delivers complete autonomy. Savings could be most significant for CP operators with critical bonds, which require measurements to be taken up to six times per year. The compact RMU1 G4 device adds two-way communication to enhance its robust CP remote monitoring capabilities of coupons, test points and structure bond applications. This new feature also enables the RMU1 to receive commands and to control the new INT1 device for GPS-synchronized interruption.
“MOBILTEX is thrilled to have received this second industry award for the RMU1+INT1 and would like to once again first acknowledge the incredible input from our industry colleagues who were instrumental in guiding our development of the RMU1+INT1 right from its inception,” said Tony da Costa, VP of Engineering at MOBILTEX. “The enhanced RMU1 and new INT1 we feel are truly game-changing devices for our industry. This is an industry-first solution allowing corrosion and integrity engineers the ability to combine remote monitoring of CP systems and interruption of bonds and anodes into a compact, powerful package that fits entirely within a test point station. We are very grateful to the selection committee for this honor, and we will use it as motivation to continue to develop technologies and products that bring real-world solutions to our customers’ challenges.”
“Receiving this second award directly from highly-respected technical leaders within our industry for the CorTalk RMU1+INT1, as well as the nomination for the CorTalk RMU1-LITE, are very exciting and truly validates to the industry that MOBILTEX continues to meet and often exceeding customer expectations by delivering next-generation IIoT products combined with our powerful CorView Cloud Platform. This recognition is a tremendous honor that also demonstrates the high level of innovation we’ve committed to as an organization in order to increase safety and efficiency for our customers.” said Marc Bracken, CEO at MOBILTEX.
