Honeywell has acquired Rebellion Photonics, a Houston-based provider of innovative, intelligent, visual gas monitoring solutions with an aim to maximise safety, operational performance, emissions mitigation and compliance in the oil and gas, petrochemical and power industries
Rebellion offers the industry’s only real-time monitoring platform that visually identifies and quantifies gas releases to quickly detect and analyse leaks and keep workers safe. The intelligent monitoring system incorporates a sophisticated AI-driven software platform that automatically alerts plant operators if a gas leak, fire or security issue is detected and provides detailed analytics.
Rebellion’s technology offers a cost-effective monitoring solution by reducing the need to install, maintain and calibrate sensors throughout a site. Its customers include some of the world’s largest oil and gas, petrochemical and power companies, and its solutions are deployed at refineries, oil rigs, offshore platforms, pipelines and power plants.
The acquisition will become part of Honeywell’s Safety and Productivity Solutions business, which provides a wide range of gas detection technologies, safety gear, mobility solutions and software to help workers stay safe and productive.
“To rapidly respond to a gas leak and keep their facilities safe, oil and gas, petrochemical and power companies are deploying Rebellion Photonics’ next-generation visual monitoring technology powered by machine learning,” said John Waldron, president and CEO of Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions.
