Earth Day also means faster industrial sites modernization

Each year on April 22, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.

The fight for a clean environment continues today with increasing urgency as the consequences of climate change and resource depletion become more evident every day.

Earth Day also means faster industrial sites modernizationEarth Day is now widely recognized as the world’s largest environmental celebration, involving more than one billion people each year in a day of action to change human behavior and create policy change at the global, national and local levels.

The concept of sustainable development formed the basis of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. This summit marked the first international attempt to develop action plans and strategies to move towards a more sustainable development model.

“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

At Samp, we mainly focus on Goal #9, “Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure”, which includes among its targets the following: “By 2030, upgrade infrastructure and retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes, with all countries taking action in accordance with their respective capabilities”

This specific target means that most large industrial facilities must adapt to enable decarbonization and to improve materials circularity, while using less harmful reactants.

Carbon-intensive industrial processes need to be replaced with decarbonized electrified processes. At the same time, raw materials feedstock is gradually substituted by a more variable – and therefore more complex – feedstock of recycled materials.

At Samp we want to be the catalyst of this sustainable transformation. We help industrial facilities successfully go through an accelerated pace of modernization and meet the fundamental challenges of safety and efficiency.

Wheel

We have crafted a simple solution that reduces the gap between the as-built and as-documented condition of an industrial facility, improving all stages of plant turnarounds, including handover to operational teams.

The engineering studies and project execution required to transform industrial facilities can now be conducted with more certainty, reducing the environmental impact of the industry more quickly.

Turnaround

Helping to accelerate the reduction of energy and carbon footprint at existing industrial facilities, while improving their ability to use circular raw materials and less harmful reactants is our humble contribution to sustainable development. We believe in it, we are already witnessing the results.

Happy Earth Day 2022 !

What can you expect
from a demo with SAMP?

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.

CONTRACT OPERATORS

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.

OWNER OPERATORS

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.
