Digitally Enhanced Compression
CSI Compressco’s Helix™ digitally enhanced compression is a telemetry system that provides real-time communication from a fleet of natural-gas compressors and their engines, enabling remote monitoring, control, analysis, and reporting of each and every connected unit’s operations. Helix™ digitally enhanced compression enhances our customer’s user experience while maximizing compression reliability and production.
Helix digitally enhanced compression telemetry system consists of the follow solutions:
Helix Connected Fleet
Our compression services fleet is fitted with a leading tri-mode communications Internet of Things (IoT) gateway. The tri-mode communications offers reliable connectivity from the field to the office. This enables compression-operations data to be communicated and accessible every minute. Each compressor is also fitted with Caterpillar’s Product Link Elite (PLE). The PLE conveys engine performance metrics, events, and diagnostics to the IoT gateway enabling remote troubleshooting of engine issues as well as the sharing of engine events and diagnostics with our customers.
Helix Customer Portal
With Cat® Remote Fleet Vision customers can monitor their fleet, view operational status and runtime metrics, and drill down to identify trends in unit performance. The portal also provides visibility into Cat® engine events and diagnostics.
Helix Data Sharing
Customer’s can obtain compression operations data through Microsoft’s Azure Event Hub to integrate into their own SCADA systems.
Helix 24/7 Monitoring Center
Our team of analysts monitor the services fleet 24/7, proactively responding to alerts, analyzing data to identify trends, and providing technical support to field personnel.
Helix Cloud Platform
We connected our fleet to Microsoft’s Azure Cloud platform for lean data processing, advanced analytics, and business integration. The robust platform allows the use of big data for machine learning and predictive maintenance.
