Asset management in oil & gas facilities and open pit mines

Large open pit mines and oil and gas drilling sites contain expensive mission-critical equipment such as vehicles, heavy machinery, backup generators, equipment, and tools. Monitoring is essential to avoid accidents, streamline operations, and avoid theft. Tracking assets substantially increases productivity, while theft detection of unattended equipment reduces costs. Abeeway does this all minus installation difficulties even in harsh and remote environments.

Workers safety in mines, oil & gas platforms

In remote and hazardous working environments such as oil and gas platforms or mines, worker security is important with fatality rate being 7x greater than all other industries. Our indoor/outdoor trackers combined with the LoRaWAN network lets you quickly and precisely respond to emergencies. This reduces injuries and fatalities with immediate detection and assistance, as well as evacuation during calamities. 

Personnel and asset location in underground mines and tunnels

Underground mining process involves large flows of human workforce and assets. The difficulty to locate workers and equipment leads to ineffective coordination of processes and operations resulting to delays, errors, and additional costs. Abeeway trackers enable visibility and safety of people and assets in deep indoor environments. With our cost-efficient solution, you can track the exact location of workers and assets using LoRaWAN, BLE beaconing system, or WiFi fingerprinting.
