We know that monitoring TSFs tailings storage facilities (TSFs) isn’t always about adopting a one-size-fits-all approach. You may already have the sensors and connectivity in place, but nowhere to view the collected data. Likewise, you may not have any infrastructure in place at your TSFs at all.

Whether you have the infrastructure already, or you require everything from sensors to connectivity, we’ve got the solutions for you. Delivering on our commitment to support safer, more transparent management of TSFs globally, we have evolved our tailings dam monitoring solution into Tailings Insight. This satellite-enabled service is split into two tiers: Tailings Insight – Cloud and Tailings Insight – Plus, giving you access to different levels of support.

Customer challenge

Being responsible for tailings dams is a tough job. Even today, operational challenges – such as far-flung locations, multiple TSFs across the globe and regulatory considerations – make dams notoriously difficult to monitor. This needn’t be a problem anymore. With the development of our Tailings Insight solutions, Inmarsat is  redefining the mining of tomorrow. Safeguarding the lives of thousands, protecting fragile ecosystems and meeting regulatory compliance has never been so straightforward.

Tailings Insight  - Plus

If you want to stand out as a leader in TSF management or are hampered by a lack of reliable connectivity, our Tailings Insight – Plus solution is for you. With our award-winning cloud application at its heart, this software is the gold standard in TSF management. 

Inmarsat provides the connectivity, integration and ongoing local support, wherever you are located. In providing you with deep, real-time insight into the status of your tailings facilities and the conditions that affect them, our solution makes certain that those who are serious about effectively managing their TSFs have the tools they need to excel. Whether you want to lead on Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) or keep tabs on particularly inaccessible and unconnected dam sites, this solution has you covered. 

Connectivity services

The solution combines Inmarsat’s Tailings Insight – Cloud application, global L-band satellite connectivity, LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) edge connectivity, sensor integration, installation, training and ongoing support. Data is transferred from sensors via LoRaWAN, across our ultra-reliable L-band satellite network and into the application. This offers you the granular insight you need, as well as auditing, alarm and note-based functionality. We also provide a service level agreement (SLA), so you can be confident all the necessary data is available wherever and whenever you need it.
