Fugro expands Remote Operations Capability in India


Fugro has announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art Remote Operations Centre (ROC) in India. Fugro currently operates a core global network of eight major Remote Operations Centres ensuring full system redundancy in all parts of the world.

This backbone infrastructure is complemented with several regional ROCs, strategically positioned near Fugro’s major clients and projects. This new regional facility will be known by the name ‘Drishti’, the Sanskrit word for ‘vision’.
 
The addition of the new Drishti ROC will allow clients in the Middle East and India to benefit from Fugro’s remote inspection and positioning solutions. Until now, Fugro has recorded over 350,000 remote operations project hours, setting new standards for safety and sustainability in land and marine environments.
 
Assisted by Fugro’s remote operations and support services team, the new regional facility was set up in the record time of just eight weeks.

The launch of the Remote Operations Centre in India is our commitment to providing continuous, safe, efficient and sustainable operations.”
 
Through the launching of ‘Drishti’, India leaps forward in offering flexible and scalable services. The ROC in India will operate on a 24-hour basis, ensuring trusted remote support to a variety of projects, starting with remote anchor positioning and remote client solutions.

Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

Increasing social Acceptance in the Management of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF)

28. October 2021 (1940 Clicks)

Ensuring social acceptance for mining projects, and especially when it comes to settling ponds for mine tailings, is a huge challenge. Modern geomonitoring integrates data obtained from orbiting satellites, from overflying aircraft and from the surface of the ground, as well as from below it, to create a transparent and space and time-referenced process understanding. Geomonitoring technology is therefore an important tool for risk management and communication over the course of the mining lifecycle.
