Clean Connect AI Inc, a Colorado-based hardware-enabled SaaS software company serving the energy and industrial automation industry, today announced a strategic partnership with Cognite, a global leader in industrial software, to provide vision-based autonomous operation and emissions applications that will optimize industrial operations and enable manage-by-exception efficiencies at scale.
The partnership brings together Autonomous365, Clean Connect AI's full suite of vision-based AI and machine learning applications, with Cognite Data Fusion® Cognite's leading open industrial DataOps platform. Together, Autonomous365 Suite and Cognite Data Fusion® facilitate AI workflows and data flows between IT and OT systems, providing an exponential view of real-time data utilizing ET, OT, and IT information, and allowing operators to manage insights at scale
Now, asset-heavy industrial operators can hyper-automate operations with applications including gas detection and quantification, non-intrusive tank level, liquid leak detection, flame and smoke detection, and other safety applications that deliver increased efficiency, reduced emissions, lower costs of operations, and improve environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics.
Specific customer benefits include:
- Reduced manual inspections with autonomous LDAR operations lowering operational costs
- Real-time autonomous detection and quantification of GHG and methane
- Visual surveillance of equipment conditions automatically integrated into digital twin providing deeper insights
- Application-based solutions solving operation challenges with immediate impact to costs
- Association of visual inspection to specific engineering technology data driving broader insight to equipment effectiveness
"Clean Connect AI is excited to partner with Cognite in providing vision-based software applications for the energy and heavy industrial marketplace", said Bryan Thyken, Vice President of Sales & Business Development. "By utilizing the Clean Connect Autonomous365 Suite with Cognite Data Fusion® operators can derive insight that previously did not exist. Connecting autonomously detected images with contextualized data provides users an exponential increase in operability and efficiency."
"Cognite enables digital transformation and drives innovation and sustainability in heavy asset industries. Through Cognite Data Fusion, we provide simple access to complex industrial data, but it is through partners like Clean Connect that we are able to provide value out of the box for a diverse set of solutions," said Trygve Rønningen, Group COO & EVP Operations for Cognite North America. "We're excited to see Clean Connect's flexible computer vision technology integrated into Cognite Data Fusion so that operators can turn ESG metrics into a new revenue center."
