The CP*Manage Cathodic Protection software database suite has now been successfully implemented in the Danish natural gas pipeline sector. Developed in close collaboration with operating engineers, this tool is tailored for planning, execution, evaluation and reporting of cathodic protection test station measurements for buried pipelines, tank farms, plant facilities etc.
Head of cathodic protection at HMN Natural Gas I/S, Mr. Per B. Sørensen, has been a leading capacity in the establishment of the requirements for this new tool. After 1 year of service Mr. Sørensen comments that the system fully complies with his expectations and is a truly systematic and cost-beneficial assistance in any aspect of CP maintenance activities. “Planning of a measurement campaign is now made in minutes by the click of the mouse, and my field technicians hereafter knows exactly where and what to measure. The automatic sync between client and database enables me to follow the execution of the campaign tightly. After completion of the campaign, the reporting to regulatory bodies is smoothly standardized through templates. I particularly endorse the plug-in based composition of the system, which allows us to ask MetriCorr for the development of customized features directly fitted for our purpose”, Mr. Sørensen concludes.
