ROCSOLE has received an Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) Spotlight on New Technology® award for its Deposition In-Line Inspection (DILI) system. DILI system uses a non-nuclear tomographic technology to inspect pipelines for deposition build-up thickness, type, and location.

ROCSOLE wins OTC award for DILI system

This is ROCSOLE’s second OTC Houston Spotlight award. The company was recognised last year for its Liquid In-Tank Inspection (LITI) product, being the first Finnish company that has ever won the award.

“Our aim is to innovate with impact. From our close dialogue and cooperation with energy companies, the DILI is key in enabling data insights for process pipelines rapidly to allow for data-centric operations with improved performance. Bringing value to our customers is key,” said Mika Tienhaara, Chief Executive Officer of ROCSOLE.

DILI technology relies on electrical tomographic measurements to inspect deposit conditions in pipelines. A DILI sensor travels through a pipeline and collects comprehensive information on deposition build-up thickness, type, and location. This safe and non-invasive technology works in various process environments without a need for production interruption and enabling fast reporting of results with AI/ML-based data processing.

“Being rewarded the Spotlight on New Technology® award second time in a row is a huge recognition for ROCSOLE’s technology and application development. We are happy to launch technologies that bring new understanding and insights on processes that have been hidden in the past,” said Arto Voutilainen, Chief Technology Officer of ROCSOLE.

The Offshore Technology Conference has taken place for more than 50 years since 1969 and this year it will be held on 16 - 19 August at NRG Park in Houston, Texas.

“The Offshore Technology Conference brings together the most advanced technologies in the offshore energy sector, and each year, we showcase the best of the best,” said Leigh Ann Runyan, Executive Director of the Offshore Technology Conference. “As a two-time small business winner of OTC’s Spotlight on New Technology Award®, Rocsole continues to innovate with its high performance and significant impact on the energy industry.”
