Brazilian Oil Spill Detection to be fitted with cloud solution

Global oceans insights experts Miros, through local partner Belga Marine, has won a significant contract with Brazilian oil major Petrobras to update its existing oil spill detection efforts.

As part of the development project, the Miros system will be matured and installed with a cloud-based add-on to the monitoring software currently in use offshore Brazil, thereby allowing data to be safely shared with multiple stakeholders in real-time.

The security of Miros’ reliable Oil Spill Detection (OSDTM) system will also be enhanced with a view to rolling it out across a range of offshore assets.

It follows the introduction of new rules from local regulator, the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA), around the integrity of OSD alarms and monitoring. The guidelines are designed to ensure information or alarms from the OSD kit offshore cannot be tampered with.

By creating a secure end-to-end pathway, information can flow between the monitoring software and the onshore stakeholders, in this case the operator and environmental authority as the regulator.

Miros is a global leader in OSD systems, offering clients advanced functionality to automatically detect and track oil spills. Since its introduction more than 250 OSD systems have been delivered to oil companies, ship owners and coastal agencies globally.
