Severneftegazstro, a Russia-based system integrator, specializing in installation, repair and dismantling of oil and gas pipelines, was the key player behind the project. As the integrator performs duties mostly during wintertime, during summertime, the equipment is kept in a town near Demyankov Uvat, Tyumen, as heavy machines cannot be operated on swampy ground. Somewhat geographically isolated, the town is only accessible by tracked vehicles in the summer and the nearest train station is about 50 km away. Aside from the challenges arising from the nature of the location, the lack of resources poses strong safety concerns for Severneftegazstro. During low seasons, there are only a few guards stationed to look after the equipment. SATCOM, VIVOTEK's valued local partner, provided surveillance solutions that could monitor the town, the equipment and the warehouse via satellite for remote viewing in Moscow.
