Application of Axis HD camera in smart oil depot

Introduction of video surveillance system for Sinopec Tianjin National Crude Oil Reserve Base

“Images captured by Axis cameras are clear and smooth. Especially the HD images which the AXIS Q8722-E Network Camera provides of the oil tanks, and the thermal rotation camera shows the actual height of crude oil in the tank and the movement of personnel in the tank area whether during the day or night. They are of great help for our production management. Moreover, the pre-sale and after-sale services of Axis are efficient and professional. The cooperation with Axis this time has been pleasant and successful.” Production control center of Sinopec Tianjin National Crude Oil Reserve Base.


Sinopec Tianjin National Crude Oil Reserve Base, as one of the four new smart oil depots built by Sinopec in 2015, adopted high-level IoT technology, system integration technology and network communication technology to fully benefit from the functions and efficiency of the sub-systems and ensure the safety and efficiency during production, storage and transportation. As a subsystem of smart depot, the depot video surveillance system forms a security barrier integrating personal protection, physical protection and technical protection by virtue of video information, and plays a key role in security and production management of the depot. Meanwhile, video information is provided to other smart subsystems through the network, making up a complete smart depot system to facilitate the user’s production and operation management and emergency command decision-making.
