Snam Rete Gas, Italy's gas transport company, and Cason signed a contract to develop a novel technology to further enhance Snam Rete Gas' pipeline monitoring systems.

The collaboration will focus on the development and implementation of the state of the art for field monitoring systems to transmit key parameters, with IP protocol, on GPRS/3G/4G communication technology and to provide diagnostics services. The technology is designed to work under extreme environmental conditions without outside power supply.

Cason will also provide its proprietary technology for field monitoring systems, including engineering services, design of hardware and software, production and assembly, repair and maintenance of its technology system and specific software development services.

The novel and state of the art system will have great impact on the environment and make operations more environment friendly and increase gas supply security.
