Under the contract, Mojix will provide its STAR 3000 System, a wide-area passive radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to be deployed at warehouses and yards to create supply chain visibility, save costs, and mitigate risks for BP.

The system will provide real-time visibility of oil platform components moving from suppliers located around the globe to the platform’s construction site.

BP will deploy the technology to monitor and manage the supply chain, which includes tracking crates, Heavy Lift and Out of Gauge equipment, containers and vessels to improve the efficiency and safety during construction.

The energy company will use two different types of tag technology, including passive EPC Gen 2 RFID tags on all materials and components and Global Positioning (GPS) sensor telemetry tags on containers and heavy equipment.

The passive tag and GPS location information is consolidated from around the globe into the Mojix’s centralised, web-based, visibility platform.
