June 2019 – Continuing with its commitment for a digital transformation, ECOPETROL has entered into a master contract with Tory Technologies, Inc. to expand the initial implementation of the SMADA solution (COSMOS™), to their entire set of production assets and refineries in Colombia.
Tory Technologies, has developed the concept of the SMADA system (Supervisory Measurement Acquisition and Data Analytics), as a fully comprehensive solution for measurement data management, integrating the best tools in the market for measurement and metrology applications, FLOWCAL® and TESTit®, with robust field data gathering engines and a powerful visualization and analysis web application. This web application was designed and developed by Tory-Tech, with the main objectives of analyzing, sharing, and distributing the processed measurement data across the corporation. FLOWCAL and TESTit are industry-standard applications used to validate, recalculate, store, and report measurement data from field devices, and link that information to users and stakeholders throughout an organization.
