Waukesha, Wisc. – September 14, 2023 – INNIO* Group (INNIO) and Detechtion Technologies (Detechtion) jointly announced today the first release of the SKIDIQ product suite, a revolutionary digital solution for natural gas compressor operators and lease compression companies. The cloud-based platform delivers unparalleled user benefits by combining INNIO’s Waukesha* engine analytics with Detechtion’s real-time compressor monitoring and optimization technology. This complete engine and compressor monitoring and optimization solution optimizes the full skid, reduces operating expenses, and increases uptime.
SKIDIQ provides a single cloud-based platform for compressor and engine fault code troubleshooting with direct access to the Waukesha E-help manual, enabling operators to quickly identify and resolve issues for reduced downtime and optimized throughput. The platform also offers complete compressor package insights, including both compressor and engine analytics to gain a deeper understanding of the skid’s performance to identify needed improvements. Additional functionality of SKIDIQ includes engine balance plots which highlight suboptimal engine performance and engine triaxial plots that track engine operating conditions over time.
Bud Hittie, President and leader for INNIO’s Waukesha brand, said, “At INNIO, we believe that digitalization can unlock significant value for our customers in terms of efficiency, productivity, and sustainability. With SKIDIQ, we have created a digital solution that is both comprehensive and easy to use. We are excited to partner with Detechtion to help customers maximize their operations and reduce their emissions.”
“SKIDIQ’s technology and its future product releases are simply unmatched. Gone are the days of siloed performance data for the engine and compressor, as we bring the full skid’s health and performance into a single view,” said Chris Smith, CEO of Detechtion.“ Detechtion is proud to partner with INNIO’s Waukesha team to bring operators the technology they need to optimize new and existing stations alike.”
The launch of SKIDIQ marks a significant milestone in the industry’s transition toward decarbonization. As the industry shifts toward a more sustainable future, technological solutions like SKIDIQ will play a crucial role in helping operators improve efficiency, reduce emissions, and control costs.
Future releases of SKIDIQ will offer additional features to help customers further improve compressor throughput and reduce both package downtime and operating expenses. SKIDIQ’s enhanced digital ecosystem and remote asset management capabilities facilitate this phased approach toward achieving full-package control of both new and existing compressors.
