Sui Southern Gas Company Trusts Sierra Wireless® to Monitor its 4,100 Critical Installations

Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC), founded in 1954, is the oldest gas distribution company in Pakistan. SSGC’s transmission system comprises over 3,220 kilometers of high pressure pipeline ranging from 12-24” in diameter, with distribution activities covering over 1,200 towns. An average of about 388,828 million cubic feet of gas was sold in 2009-2010 to over 2.2 million industrial, commercial and domestic consumers in these regions through a distribution network of over 37,000 kilometers.

Business Challenge

SSGC was relying on a manual data acquisition (DAQ) model that required engineers to travel from site to site to visually record gas levels, which were documented in logs. This manual effort posed many challenges to SSGC’s purchase, distribution, and billing processes, as well as to the company’s bottom line.

Sierra Wireless AirLink Solution

SSGC implemented a wireless DAQ solution from Sierra Wireless partner Mazik Global. The solution features a Sierra Wireless AirLink® rugged, intelligent gateway specifically designed to handle complex mobile data and remote asset management applications for utility management.
