With the eyes of the industry on tailings dam safety, infrequent, inaccurate manual readings are no longer a viable option. Inmarsat’s Tailings Dam Monitoring Solution is the first truly global managed service to deliver real-time monitoring capabilities to every mine in your estate, no matter how remote they are.

Our feature-packed cloud dashboard helps you understand the granular conditions at any of your tailings facilities, at any time, speeding up your decision making, improving safety standards and enhancing your regulatory compliance.

How we can help

Enhanced health and safety
React quicker to any situation where human harm might occur. Set alarms, define escalation notifications and procedures and review historical data to analyse trends. Reduce the need for potentially hazardous lone worker trips to inspect tailings facilities.

Support regulatory compliance
Choose to be a leader by adopting best practice monitoring and complying with regulations that are becoming increasingly strict. We can help build transparency between you and your regulator by sharing more data granularity.

Make smarter decisions
No more waiting for audits or inspections to react. Now you can see the status of multiple data points from all of your dams in one place, so you can make more informed decisions, faster than was previously possible.

How the solution works

The solution collects data at pre-defined intervals from your instruments and sensors via edge connectivity such as LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) before it is transferred across Inmarsat’s highly reliable L-band satellite network to a cloud dashboard.

The cloud dashboard enables on-site workers, control centre, auditors and regulators to gain a comprehensive view of dam status with granular metrics such as pond elevation, piezometric pressures, inclinometer readings and weather conditions all displayed in one place.
