Morphosense was founded in 2016. Since then, Neuron, the company’s sensor-based structural health monitoring solution, has been used on land. Today, the solution, which provides 3D deformation and thee-axis vibration measurements, is ready for offshore applications. Morphosense will respond to the monitoring needs of offshore oil and gas drilling platforms—many of which are nearing the end of their theoretical lifespan of 35 to 50 years. To be able to continue using the platforms, operators must be able to demonstrate that the structures are in good health at all times.
The Neuron system recently obtained ATEX Z1 and Z21 certifications for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, a must for the oil and gas industry. Morphosense, which holds licenses to three Leti patents, is still addressing structures on land and finished equipping at 630-meter-long bridge in Taiwan in June.
