IMECA - Pipeline laying tower monitoring

Customer requirement

IMECA’s customers needed a tower instrumentation system.

Previously, IMECA had been using classic gauges welded to the structure, but the gauges were becoming damaged by corrosion.

Pose de Pipline

SCAIME solution

We proposed OBSG-120 fibre-optic gauges which were glued to the structure. Our know-how in gluing under maritime conditions, accredited by the German BAM institute enabled us to distribute a dozen gauges across the structure and connect them to an MDX400T-X acquisition unit.


  • MDX400T-X
  • OBSG-120 deformation gauges
  • OBTS-100 temperature sensors
  • Marine-certified optical cable

Customer benefits

  • Acquisition unit suitable for the harsh environment.
  • Composite sensors glued to the structure, for reliable long-term measurements
