Gold mining company needs to monitor machinery downtime, as it works further than 100 km from the base. Moreover, fuel consumption and location control are also crucial.
Gold mining company extracts alluvial gold in the Trans-Baikal Region. It is necessary to provide fuel consumption control and equipment monitoring to optimize the performance.
Our partner offered the following solution: to equip the machinery with Galileosky Base Block Wi-Fi and Galileosky Base Block Wi-Fi Hub devices. The first ones are GPS units created for vehicle monitoring in the areas with poor GSM coverage. The latter, in addition, collect data from other Galileosky units with a complete absence of GSM network.
Data is transmitted to the server via Wialon. The regularity of data uploading is determined specifically for each project. It depends on the number of machines, terrain type, season, etc.
Maxim Revyakin, Head of Regional Development Department Galileosky:
- The most difficult factor in the gold mining industry are the conditions, where machinery operates. Bad weather and constant lack of GSM network make it difficult to optimize the performance. In addition, machines work in remote areas, so monitoring allows to keep abreast of.
50 Galileosky Base Block Wi-Fi units and 5 Galileosky Base Block Wi-Fi Hub units have already been installed on the company’s fleet to provide:
- drivers’ work control - now management knows exactly how many hours employee worked during the shift;
- cargo safety;
- lack of financial losses and costs caused by downtime;
- resource savings: The company does not spend money on additional fuel.
It is not the first project that our partner has implemented using Galileosky trackers. Find out how Galileosky devices were used in the construction of the gas pipelines. It is one of the most important infrastructure facilities for Russia — the Power of Siberia.
