June 2, 2020 – Inmarsat has launched Tailings Insight, a new Internet of Things (IoT) solution for monitoring mining tailings storage facilities (TSFs), which builds on and upgrades our award-winning Tailings Dam Monitoring Solution. Available in two new propositions: Tailings Insight – Cloud and Tailings Insight – Plus, the flexible solutions are designed to respond to the differing needs of miners and reflect our commitment to building more transparent, safer management of TSFs globally. Our award-winning Tailings Dam Monitoring Solution was launched in March 2019 after several years of development with industry partners. As a fully managed service, the solution worked by collecting data from a range of industry-established sensors via Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) edge connectivity, before transferring that data across our L-band network to a dashboard. This ensured mining companies were able to see the status of key metrics in one place and in real-time, facilitating more responsive decision-making and safer mining operations.
