Shell signs global partnership to accelerate AI integration
Shell has signed a global agreement with Detect Technologies to deploy its T-Pulse integrated AI solution across the oil company’s operations. The technology is already supporting the automation of safety compliance across various assets of the multinational firm but with the new partnership it will expand into other areas.
“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. 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,” said Dan Jeavons, vice president of Computational Science and Digital Innovations at Shell.
The announcement marks the first time an Indian tech startup that was part of the Shell E4 program has signed a global framework agreement with Shell. According to a press release published by Detect, Shell has significantly increased safety compliance with timely interventions thanks to its partner’s vision-based intelligence. In addition, Shell Ventures has signed an investment agreement to further the company’s growth.
“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. This is a testament to our mission of driving change through AI and advanced technologies to create a safer and more efficient industrial world,” added Daniel Raj David, CEO and co-founder of Detect Technologies.
T-Pulse is a ready-to-use and commercially centralised technology built for enhanced safety and reliability of people, equipment, and processes. The product has already been deployed across construction, downstream, upstream, midstream, offshore, petrochemical, ports, power, metals and mining, pharmaceuticals, cement, and fabrication yards.
