NuGen Automation has formally launched a pandemic resource hub and expanded its suite of automation offerings in response to the coronavirus health emergency.

NuGen Automation (NuGen) first soft-launched the Covid-19 Energy Resource Hub in April to customers, partners and employees to deliver timely safety information amid the emerging health emergency from novel coronavirus Covid-19.

The Hub has since expanded considerably to include: (i) Pipeline Safety Regulatory Guidance – Regulator updates and pandemic guidance from Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), American Petroleum Institute (API), Canada Energy Regulator, and Control Engineering Group; (ii) Technology Partner Resources – Key partnership resources, including Esri (ArcGis), Microsoft (Teams and Skype), AVEVA (formerly WonderWare), and Schneider Electric; (iii) National Public Health & Safety Information – Health and safety guidance from global public health agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and the Public Health Agency of Canada; and (iv) Company Pandemic Support Resources – Pandemic-response thought leadership and personal health resources guides created by NuGen Automation, including Covid-19 Compliance Report: PHMSA Stay of Enforcement, and Working Remotely - Health & Wellness Guide: Focus & Safety.

NuGen's Remote Operations Go-Kits are next-gen contingency solutions for ICS-enabled control rooms. These workstations offer portability, rapid deployment (within minutes), and secure connection (via custom encryption protocols and firewall protection) into any type of industrial control system (ICS) across industries.

Remote Operation Go-Kits feature ruggedised exteriors, fallback broadband, and enterprise access points for peak operations through any disaster scenario.

Each Go-Kit workstation is purpose-assembled at the headquarters campus in Houston by a team of hardware experts with professional experience in dedicated control room technologies.

NuGen's Field Automation Services deliver strategic and tactical oilfield automation capabilities in design, programming, documentation, and QA testing. Services include PLC programming, P&ID drawings, front-end engineering, control centre upgrades, and Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT).

Field Automation Services can be deployed with accommodations to public safety conditions.
