Delivering on our commitment to support safer, more transparent management of TSFs (tailings storage facilities) globally, we have evolved our Tailings Dam Monitoring Solution into Tailings Insight, formed of Tailings Insight – Cloud and Tailings Insight – Plus. We recognise that different mining organisations need different levels of support, and as such you can now integrate our award-winning cloud application with your existing sensors and networks, or access these capabilities as part of a fully managed service with Tailings Insight – Plus.

Tailings Insight - Cloud

Inmarsat’s Tailings Insight – Cloud is a software-as-a-service application that enables organisations to view all of their tailings data in one place via a single dashboard, supporting real-time monitoring and management across the globe. This solution has been developed in response to the industry’s need for a way of compiling tailings data from a multitude of sources.

The application easily integrates with existing on-site sensors and connectivity networks to enable real-time monitoring, as well as supporting historical data input for comparative analysis. With a fully customisable interface, multiple sensor map views, custom alarm monitoring, data logging, journaling functionality, sensor health reporting and easy data export, the updated application provides the most comprehensive set of features of any tailings application.

How the solution works

Instruments such as piezometers and ultrasonic height sensors are connected via edge connectivity before Inmarsat’s ultra-reliable Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) service transfers the data to the cloud. The application offers granular insight, as well as auditing, alarm and note-based functionality. The solution works with standalone power infrastructure meaning it will work on any mine site – closed or open – and is supported on an ongoing basis as a managed service by Inmarsat.

Our process

We look to understand your needs by analysing your tailings estate and the instruments you use. This is likely to be in conjunction with your auditor. We design a solution that responds to your needs.
Our technical teams deliver and install the solution on-site and on our networks using our management tools. This will include site visits, training and testing.
We are responsible for the ongoing management of your connectivity services and deliver service levels as outlined in your contract. We work as an extension of your team and provide reporting on the performance of your solution. *NB We do not provide analysis of the data itself.
We understand that the needs of your tailings estate will change over time, with new tailings ponds being added, along with new instruments, and decommissioning work taking place. We work with you to ensure you have the right level of visibility across your estate.
