Top industrial artificial intelligence and software service startup Detect Technologies has joined ranks with global energy giant Shell to deploy its integrated AI Solution ‘T-Pulse' across operations of the Shell.
According to the company, this makes Detect — the first technology start-up which was part of the Shell E4 programme to sign a global framework agreement with Shell. Shell Ventures has signed an investment agreement to further the company's growth, a company statement said.
“We appreciate Shell's continued confidence in Detect. To have the world's top energy companies sign a global agreement investing in Detect is a strong show of faith in our trajectory,” Detect Technologies, CEO and Co-Founder Daniel Raj David said.
“This is a testament to our mission of driving change through AI and advanced technologies to create a safer and more efficient industrial world,” he said.
T-Pulse is a ready-to-use and commercially centralised technology. Built for enhanced safety and reliability of people, equipment and processes, T-Pulse has already been deployed across construction, petrochemical, ports, power, metals and mining, pharmaceuticals among others.
“From the early days of piloting Detect's T-Pulse technology Shell has been impressed with the product and the ingenuity of the team behind it,” Shell Vice President of Computational Science and Digital Innovations, Dan Jeavons said.
“T-Pulse has proven to generate actionable insights that have made our operations measurably safer. It is encouraging to see the impact of T-Pulse at Shell growing to help achieve goal zero,” he added.
