Telecom and Industrial IT by Eldor

Digital transformation requires cutting-edge solutions for telecommunication and industrial IT. Among the most demanding projects, you will find remote operation and lifetime extension of obsolete systems.

Technology, more specifically telecom and industrial IT, very often plays the role as an enabler used to achieve optimised production and maintenance of systems.

Furthermore, the new digital solutions require high-speed communication, collaboration and cyber security.

At the very heart of these solutions, you will find control rooms, telecommunication and control systems.

In these areas, many operator companies and other industrial users of telecommunication systems are looking for an independent management plan for handling various issues related to obsolescence. 


Martin Linge remote operations

Total E&P's Martin Linge field has been designed for remote operation from the very start of its production. Eldor was appointed to specify, design, and engineer all the related telecommunication systems in their new building. A characteristic challenge for this project is the way we had to combine offshore and onshore standards.

Equinor Tjeldbergodden - Lifetime extension 

An example of lifetime extension of systems is virtualisation of servers.

This technology was used for Equinor (Statoil) Tjeldbergodden with minor disturbances to the operation, and it extended the lifetime of servers. 


How to get started:

Eldor’s ambition is to be the preferred one-stop-partner for remote control-rooms and operation support centers, which utilise new technology to extend the lifetime of systems.

Industrial IT, lifetime extension of obsolete systems

We are vendor agnostic to telecom systems. For secure remote access we have established a cooperation with Cegal for C@P (Connect at plant).

Eldor's clients may use our technical experts to strengthen their team or let us take the full responsibility of Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation (EPCI).
