DOWNLOAD SMART AQUEDUCTS HYDRO MONITORING USE CASE HERE
With remotely located Hydropower Stations comes difficulty in managing assets due to high cost or non-existent terrestrial connectivity.
While remotely located assets in difficult to reach terrain are currently being monitored by sensors, retrieval of their data is performed in person by skilled staff, creating huge time inefficiencies. Collection methods are currently manual and labour intensive, met with high employee safety risks.
Fleet Space is championing nanosatellite technology to remotely monitor isolated assets from HQ through “Smart Aqueducts”, a deployment of Smart Hydro Technology for Continuous Aqueduct Monitoring, where sensors monitor soil moisture and water flow, and relay potential threats in real-time.
Huge efficiencies can be gained by automating and remotely monitoring the asset network, detailed in this Hydro Use Case.
