Enhance Efficiency, Improve Safety

Knowing where equipment is and if it’s ready to work can save delays, work disruptions and logistics expense.

Efficiency: Tracking equipment location and utilization allows for timely and accurate billing for services and equipment rental. Receive early warning of equipment and engine faults to minimize breakdown and repair expense. Track equipment hours and fuel consumption to know when service is due, and log carbon emissions.

Safety: Provide employees the ability to “check-in” or “check-out” from any location via an Iridium® Satellite linked Pendant. Workers can actively or passively call for help when in remote areas — in or away from their vehicle — engage escalation procedures in near real-time, and communicate with the office when out of cellular range.

Accountability: Monitor propulsion, extraction and generator engines for fuel efficiency, consumption, state of health and engine operating hours.
