DamPulse™, the integrated fibre optic sensing-based tailings dam monitoring solution addresses issues of dam stability, public safety, and environmental protection.
Delivering ULTRA HD quality distributed temperature, strain, and acoustic measurements in real-time, the system offers early alerts of potential problems, minimizing the risk of dam failures.
Distributed fibre-optic monitoring offers dense spatial and temporal profiling over large sub-surface volumes, long ranges, and at locations where conventional point sensing is not applicable or not cost effective.
DamPulse enables operators to identify non-conformance with design or operational expectations to facilitate timely maintenance and intervention before any failure occurs.
The system provides high quality distributed temperature, strain, and acoustic measurements in real-time, with a single optical fibre cable over the entire structure. With multiple monitoring techniques it permits identification of increasing seepage zones, material changes and structural variations with high resolution.
Fully automated in situ monitoring system with remote access
- Enables entire dam structure to be efficiently monitored
- Unmanned operation
- Programmable alerts for abnormal or rapid changes in seepage, material density deformation, seismic activity or breach
- Real-time processing and visual presentation of data via web interface
