AI-powered equipment inventory: a game-changer for contract operators

Contract operators navigating public tenders often grapple with uncertainties surrounding the condition of assets when managing industrial or utility facilities. Whether dealing with operations & maintenance contracts, concession agreements, or complex design-build-operate projects, accurately assessing the existing state of plants or networks is a critical factor in minimizing uncertainty and risk.


Traditionally, lengthy equipment inventories involving months of on-site inspections have been the norm, leading to high costs and time-consuming processes. However, a game-changing solution has emerged over the last four years, thanks to Samp, a france-based deeptech company.

Samp’s purpose-designed AI enables automated inventories directly from 3D reality capture, eliminating the need for extensive on-site inspections. Instead of sending personnel for weeks or months, contract operators can now deploy surveying teams to capture site realities within hours or days using techniques such as smartphones, mobile laser scanners, drones, and more.

The resulting 3D scans are seamlessly processed by Samp’s AI, providing an online workspace for equipment inventory verification. This approach has drastically reduced lead times and costs, making it possible to scan thousands of square meters per day.

The benefits are substantial

  1. Inventory lead times and costs are significantly reduced.
  2. Site team risk exposure is minimized.
  3. Risk mitigation measures can be implemented days after contract engagement.
  4. The process can be conducted before issuing tenders, ensuring transparency and the lowest fair price.
  5. Maintaining an up-to-date inventory throughout the contract is easily achieved.

Whether dealing with oil & gas, chemicals & industrial gases, water & waste, or district heating & cooling, transitioning to AI-powered continuous inventory management offers a new paradigm for better economics, best-in-class safety, and unmatched customer satisfaction. 

This isn’t a promise for tomorrow—it’s a ready-to-use solution in operation today.

Scanning Services

Extend the reach of your scanning services by delivering your scanning campaigns on a purely web-based portal, designed from the ground up for the industry. Leverage your surveying and topographic expertise to consolidate valuable field data into a single viewer: maps, aerial and drone orthophotos, laser scans, photogrammetry or videogrammetry, and georadar can now be securely viewed, updated and shared in one place.

Engineering services, EPC

Upscale the value of your engineering services offering by delivering digital twin as a service, powered by your qualified staff. Improve customer retention with longer-term contracts that ensure continuous synchronization of technical documentation with the as-built facility. Accelerate or automate the production of technical deliverables when working on brownfield projects with little or no existing input information.


When preparing a quote for operating a facility on behalf of the owner, be sure to maximize that short window of time by taking advantage of as much technical information as possible. Turn your initial site visit into a unique opportunity to capture the current condition of the facility. Make a bid that will beat the competition with an already operational digital twin, while giving you increased confidence in your future service contract margins.


Whether you manage a single plant or a fleet of sites, whether your facilities are on-shore or off-shore, we can help you build and maintain a twin within days. Major milestones in a plant’s lifecycle, such as handover from EPC to operator, change of ownership, revamping or decommissioning, provide an opportunity to implement a safer and more efficient way of working with your extended teams, regardless of the quality of your technical data.
