PHM for Heavy Machineries in Oil & Gas and Mining Industry

The criticality of monitoring and maintaining heavy machinery that operate at remote sites is possibly best exemplified in the mining and the off-shore drilling industry. These machines are expected to work 24×7 and the cost of any downtime has a significant impact on profitability and in some cases the survivability of the industry itself. In this session three industry leaders from Schlumberger, Impact Technologies, and SKF will provide a 30-min presentation on challenges and opportunities for PHM of heavy machineries used in the Oil-Gas Industry.
