Mining sites are often located in very remote locations across the world and due to the difficulty of communicating through heavy rock and equipment, there needs to be consistency in mining operations and communication. Cellular and radio technology is often not enough to handle the ongoing tracking, monitoring, and messaging needs to take place for critical decision-making and mining sites. Here are some of the top five ways that promote mining operations are improving with satellite communication:
Truck tracking and heavy equipment:
Heavy trucks and equipment need to be properly tracked and having satellite communications and data available on a mining site improve this level of heavy equipment tracking.
Remote sensors and tracking from satellite Internet ensures that data can be captured and sent worldwide.
Improve weather reports:
Harsh weather can have a series of acting mining sites. Having placed specific weather data and satellite monitoring will ensure that a consistent weather report and worn miners and protect equipment wherever necessary.
Improvements to data capture and monitoring lead to peak production improvements. A focus on reducing accidents and improving the overall security of workers reducing downtime and makes mining sites a more efficient workspace.
Remote mining monitoring will help with predictive maintenance as well as improving communication between remote teams and local teams on a mining site.
For all of these reasons and more, you should strongly consider the use of mobile communications or satellite communication with your remote mining site. If you are interested in improving your mining site, contact us today.
