Case Studies

Oil and Gas
Safety and Security

Challenge

A large international oil and gas company needed a solution to monitor their CO2 recovery plants tracking over 1,000 workers in the Permian Basin of Texas. The facilities are dispersed across hundreds of miles and range in size from a couple of acres to nearly a hundred acres. Due to the ever-present risk of flammable gases, these facilities are rated Class I, Division 1 and 2 hazardous areas (similar to IECEx and ATEX Zone 0).

Transportation, Cargo & Logistics
Improving Asset Utilization Via Real-time
Visibility and Monitoring

 

Challenge

Maintaining continual knowledge of the location, physical, environmental, and technical status of high value assets is an operational imperative. One of the world’s largest transportation, cargo and logistics companies needed a solution to remotely identify, locate and monitor ground operations’ vehicles and equipment over 3,000 acres (1.5 by 3 miles) of indoor and outdoor complex metallic areas.   

Mining
Wireless Monitoring and Remote
Management of High-Value Assets

 

Challenge

One of the world’s largest mining companies, at an open pit iron ore mine located in Australia, needed a machine-to-machine (M2M) solution to remotely locate, monitor and operate mobile lighting towers, as well as improve asset utilization.

 

Labor productivity is an ongoing challenge in the mining industry. The mine operators sought a solution to help them identify, locate, monitor and wirelessly control more than 40 mobile lighting towers and more than 100 high-value physical assets including cranes, generators and welding units.
