Mining operators have been facing the challenge of having to cope with cost reduction schemes while improving site safety for years. While safety and minimising cost remain the key drivers for mining operations, the growing spotlight on environmental issues adds to the complexity of operations. Profitability and growth of mining companies is largely down to how they can adapt to the pressures of sustainability. Despite technological advancements that have made the industry greener, most processes are still resource intensive with significant environmental impact and there is a growing push in the industry, on all five continents, to find more sustainable solutions. Silixa offers a portfolio of proven monitoring solutions that target all of these concerns. They enhance productivity, minimise risks, and ensure sustainability by providing more reliable and cost-effective means of geophysical assessment as well as asset and process monitoring.

Nicolaus Radford joins Crownsmen Energy to discuss Houston Mechatronics. They are developing an ecosystem of cloud-based subsea robots, software, and subsea services delivered in a modern business model to the offshore industry. These include our flagship product, Aquanaut, its Dept. of Defense counterpart, and a suite of hardware and software to update existing ROVs(Remotely operated underwater vehicle). HMI’s robotic systems will be delivered to commercial and Department of Defense (DoD) customers primarily through a Robotics as a Service (RaaS) subscription business model but also direct product sales where required. RaaS products are controlled through HMI’s Wavelink, our over the horizon remote connectivity. This modernized approach to subsea robotics as a service has also resulted in the development of a range of products for retrofit/upgrading legacy ROV/AUV platforms. Nicolaus believes that there are many changes to make to conventional ROVs and AUVs(Autonomous underwater vehicles), that will ensure near term revenue opportunities and help push the entire industry forward thereby also increasing our overall value. Our services provide customers the necessary data and manipulation capability to support maximizing production and improving asset value while minimizing their operating footprint, operating cost, carbon footprint, and offshore HS&E exposure.
