Ameren, Black & Veatch, Collins Aerospace team passes key milestone for maturing UAS inspection technology
NEWTON, Ill., December 3, 2018 /3BL Media/ – With thousands of miles of high-voltage lines, Ameren Corp. wanted a better and safer way to monitor its assets spread over rural territories beyond manual or helicopter inspections. The St. Louis-based energy company worked with Black & Veatch and Collins Aerospace to identify a solution: Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) drone flights. The team now has proven they can inspect more miles of transmission lines faster and safer than ever envisioned.
We explore Mars for many reasons, be it the risk minimization of distributing our species across multiple planets or the fact that our population is growing at a rate that is unsustainable for our Earth’s resources.
‘5G: A New Digital Dawn’ is a visual guide for stakeholders to gear up for full embrace of fifth-generation wireless
OVERLAND PARK, Kan., November 28, 2018 /3BL Media/ – As tech shorthand for fifth-generation cellular wireless, 5G is on the horizon and promises unprecedented speeds and capabilities that could transform the way we live, work and play. But 5G also presents considerable complexities in technology deployment and how stakeholders should get ready to benefit from 5G digitalization.
Goldcorp’s Towards Zero Water (H2Zero) Strategy targets dramatic reductions in our use of fresh water and increased water recycling rates at every one of our operations. An immediate goal is to reduce all forms of “high-calorie water” extraction which we define as the extraction of water not necessary due to dewatering or the inadvertent capture or precipitation by our existing facilities.
Goldcorp’s safety culture underpins everything we do as a company. Mining safely is a challenge we face every day, and there is no better example of this challenge than safety surrounding cyanide.
Cyanide is a highly toxic chemical most commonly used in the leaching process for gold extraction, which means we need to take every precaution to ensure it is handled safely at all our sites. One of the ways we do this is with the addition of red dye to the mix, which helps with leak detection of an otherwise clear liquid.
