Sinclair Oil, a leading, privately held US integrated oil company headquartered in Salt Lake City, UT, and I2oT Solutions, announced today that they have completed a new technology implementation that will automate their work processes and drastically improve facility efficiency.

Sinclair Oil worked with I2oT Solutions to design and implement a facility wide wireless infrastructure as a foundational element to its ‘Digital Transformation’ and ability to readily harvest the benefits being made available through the advent of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

I2oT Solutions provided the full range of services from design and engineering through construction management and commissioning services for the wireless infrastructure. The scope of the wireless deployment created a sitewide umbrella of outdoor coverage as well as strategic coverage of manned indoor areas. The engineering phase for the wireless project was completed in November 2016. The physical infrastructure deployment phase began in April 2017 followed by a successful on time and under budget completion in October this year.

Now that the infrastructure is successfully complete, Sinclair Oil will start new projects for wireless mobility solutions for permit to work, workflow, compliance, knowledge management and many other critical business process applications.
