Improve Operational Efficiency using Private 5G Wireless in Refineries

Watch Video

Confronting the enormous costs of unplanned outages in the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries—estimated at $250,000 per hour and $2,000,000 per event—requires decisive actions.

To save costs, elevate maintenance, enhance staff training, and launch IoT, AI, and sensor-driven digital projects are vital. Yet, these efforts, which can greatly improve maintenance and reduce sudden shutdowns, encounter one major problem: ensuring dependable connectivity.

Check out a real-life comparison of Wi-Fi and Private Wireless on a refinery site equivalent to 260 football fields.

The Challenge:

Reliable Connectivity in Refineries

  • Sprawling large campuses require large number of Wi-Fi APs.

  • Heavy Metal environments are not conducive to Wi-Fi signal propagation.

  • Service through public carriers is expensive and difficult to secure.

The Solution:

Celona's Innovative Private 5G Wireless

  • Private Wireless can provide pervasive coverage with 1/30th number of Wi-Fi APs.

  • Strong performance in Heavy Metal environments.

  • Data never leaves the premises and is secured end-to-end using SIM/eSIM technologies.
