Where physical integrity meets information integrity

Close the gap between the office and the field

We serve the process industry, with a focus on water and energy.

Capital facilities within this industry share common challenges:
  • They are facing unprecedented challenges to reduce their carbon footprint while remaining safe and efficient
  • They have a very long lifespan (several decades) and are constantly evolving
  • They are intrinsically multidisciplinary and involve many players
  • They are complex objects, composed of thousands to millions of individual pieces of equipment

We help ensure that Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams accurately reflect the actual equipment and systems installed in facilities. We also add value when a facility has no drawings at all by generating inventories.


The main sectors that Samp is currently helping to modernize and adapt to accelerating challenges:

Water Utilities Samp

Water & utilities

The growth of the world’s population, GDP and cities is putting pressure on freshwater supply and wastewater treatment. McKinsey estimates that by 2030, the global gap between water supply and demand could reach 40%.

A sustained pace of efficient modernization and expansion of utility networks and plants is essential to close this gap at a cost that is affordable for the environment and end users. This includes desalination plants, drinking water production and distribution facilities, wastewater networks and treatment plants, district heating and cooling systems, industrial water treatment, or industrial cooling.

Samp is there to help quickly rebuild a shared, up-to-date twin of these assets, whether owned or operated on behalf of a third party, allowing for continuous data cleansing by all stakeholders.

power energy industry

Power & energy

At the heart of the energy transition, the power and energy sector must adapt quickly to meet the expected change in the energy mix. Increasing low-carbon electricity generation, reducing methane leakage, and decreasing the impact and volume of oil and gas extraction mean that capital assets will need to adapt.

Beyond the expansion of distributed renewables, nuclear power is already undergoing ambitious life extension programs, bioenergy plants continue to expand, and hydroelectric and pumped storage plants are being repowered. The natural gas market is now global, and transmission pipelines are becoming increasingly bi-directional to take advantage of LNG’s flexibility, while the hunt for leaks is driving infrastructure upgrades.

Samp helps keep technical asset information current while these large-scale and fast-paced changes occur.

chemicals industrials gases

Chemicals & industrial gases

The chemical industry, a key enabler of circularity, is adapting many of its processes, and therefore its plants, to accommodate new recycled feedstocks, while adapting its facilities to reduce carbon footprint.

Industrial gases are also set for a major transformation, with a significant change in the way hydrogen is produced, which will fuel many chemical and metallurgical processes. This will lead to a transformation of large integrated industrial complexes on a massive scale, while they remain in operation.

Samp is there to help meet this challenge, and to provide a constantly updated view of the facilities as they are upgraded year after year, allowing the production, maintenance and engineering team to work together with maximum plant uptime.

marine offshore industry

Marine & offshore

Military ships, commercial vessels, and cruise liners have all grown in size and complexity to become more efficient in their respective missions.

However, these engineering jewels, once at sea, are subject to maintenance and modifications performed far from their original yards, and as the years go by, it is increasingly difficult to track their condition. Once damage is reported at sea, land-based experts sometimes have difficulty providing remote support due to a lack of understanding of their actual condition. The same is true after several years of maintenance and modification, or after a change of ownership of offshore platforms and electrical substations used in offshore wind farms.

Samp helps onshore teams to keep track of offshore assets, while facilitating remote expert support to offshore teams.

pulp paper industry

Pulp & paper

Pulp mills must both meet the most stringent environmental standards and produce new products to partially replace single-use plastic.

This puts a strain on the industry, which is already at the top of the S-shaped development curve for optimization technologies. Cogeneration, digesters, effluent management, recovery have been highly optimized after numerous revamping campaigns. Yet, the current state of the facilities is not always well enough known to confidently embark on other ambitious upgrades needed to cope with more recycled feedstock, especially in the demanding environment of some of these plants.

Samp is there to help remote equipment experts work hand in hand with site maintenance teams and collaborate around an accurate view of the facility.

agro industry nutrition

Agri, food & beverages industry

Breweries, sugar, starch or grain processing plants are often landmarks linked to local agricultural practices. Unlike many other sectors where plants have been replaced by entirely new facilities, these plants are among the most time-honored, and have rarely benefited from ambitious upgrades.

Local teams have the knowledge and know-how to operate, maintain and modernize them. In order to combine this unique field expertise with the latest technologies, and to adapt to the changing demands of consumers and regulators, it is necessary to accelerate the pace and scale of transformation of these legacy sites.

Samp helps site teams collaborate with external partners to ensure that adaptation can be achieved in the most appropriate manner.

pharma & biotech industry

Pharma & biotech

Epidemiological shifts, as well as a growing and aging population, drive global healthcare demand. The quest for improved medications, personalized treatments, and the adoption of biopharma technologies keeps the industry at breathtaking pace.

Challenges such as regulatory complexity, stringent quality standards, and heterogeneous production facilities present hurdles, requiring a delicate balance between innovation and compliance. Efficient technological leverage on existing manufacturing sites is crucial to overcoming these challenges and ensuring economic equilibrium.

Samp helps to continuously optimize the flexibility of existing manufacturing facilities, thanks to a perfect knowledge of site utilities, to adapt production lines faster and industrialize at scale.

battery semiconductors industry

Batteries & semi

Battery and semiconductor manufacturing places high demands on fluid management, from gas handling to ultra-pure water production.

The growing battery and electronics recycling sector relies on energy-efficient hydrometallurgical processes to recover valuable materials and improve industry circularity. The rapid evolution of production processes and equipment requires good monitoring of site utilities to ensure efficient adaptation of industrial assets to the latest available technologies, and to remain competitive.

Samp helps to continuously reduce the environmental impact of these capital-intensive facilities by adapting production lines at an accelerated pace, in order to take advantage of the latest processes and deliver products with the smallest environmental footprint.

mining metal minerals industry

Mining, metal & minerals

Steel, aluminum, cement, and glass are just a few of the huge sectors rapidly transforming towards more circularity and less carbon emissions.

The need to switch energy sources, adapt to environmentally optimized processes, improve waste and by-product management, while being able to process increasing volumes of recycled raw materials, means that facilities are undergoing rapid transformation on many fronts. Increasingly autonomous or stand-alone operations require full knowledge of the configuration of assets on site, so that remote operations teams can make the right decisions.

Samp helps keep up-to-date knowledge of the site configuration, even though it is often reconfigured to adapt to the resource or to the customer demand.
