Communication systems For Marine And Mining Industries

Oct 22nd 2014 at 2:24 AM

Two of the most important industries, mining and maritime, have to find some reliable way to ensure safety and productivity. In both the industries, it is vital to keep the operators aware of working conditions and risk profiles. Therefore, effective communication is must in both these sectors.

You might have heard in news some incidents of mine collapse, and miners trapped inside. Furthermore, the subsequent collapses in the same mine have also been reported where the rescue workers also risked their lives. Such kinds of disasters happen primarily because a lack in the escape route or coal mine safety issues like mining communications.

To avoid these conditions, coal mine operators have to keep an eye on the workers. They have to be able to locate and communicate with them all the time. The need for this communication is felt more particularly in the event of roof falls, fire and other life-threatening situations. The most critical thing is to ensure that the communication system in use stays active even during the odds like fan stoppages, power outages or gas accumulations.

In general, the goal of mine operators is always to ensure improved local and global communication with a system that is simple to use and contribute toward complete safety of the workers. All of them are moving toward an important direction to have a comprehensive system that embraces machines, monitoring and people.

There have been some technological breakthroughs to have wired as well as wireless underground network infrastructure to last for longer with some small batteries. Such systems are highly helpful in these industries where installation of wires for power and communication is intricate. These systems offer a comprehensive portfolio or solutions to enhance productivity and safety while avoiding risks or damages.

Similarly, it is also important to have an effective mode of communication in maritime and offshore industries on a variety of vessels like commercial cargo ships, yachts, passenger ships, and also on service support vessels for gas platforms etc. Maritime VSAT is the solution for all these communication needs, which makes use of satellite broadband to fulfil the demands of commination even in mid of the sea. The industries can enjoy a suite of services with this technological advancement allowing unlimited broadband internet access and other facilities like secure corporate VPN.

The technological changes have made accessing internet a 24 hours affair even in the middle of the sea, also allowing video conferencing at the time of need, and ensuring safety video training.
