This has resulted in the development of the Nexus Integrity Centre (Nexus-IC), an advanced software suite that integrates information from components across the whole facility with leading CMMS systems, which reduces data duplication, optimises scheduling and allows instant access to information, which eases compliance with auditing.
Nexus-IC’s electronically stores and organises reports, documents, photos, drawings and IDs, allowing users to easily maintain, link and reference asset information. The data can be easily updated / inherited from other assets using Microsoft Excel, and can undergo live calculations using other field data such as MAOP, wall thickness, hazard levels and corrosion rates. The Nexus-IC also includes a function builder tool. This allows the user to create any number of functions and reference them in the asset information field.
Another useful aspect of the Nexus-IC is its anomaly tracking function. This tool allows the user to investigate and close out anomalies, as well as assign them to departments, contractors or individuals. Anomaly assessment takes the form of a traffic-light system, where the anomaly can be placed in a risk hierarchy with other data.
Data reports can be generated and exported to HTML or Word.

WGIM plans projects with everything from corrosion management to fabrication processes in mind; and as such selects materials with great care in regards to lifecycle, engineering and cost.
