Mine-water management has traditionally been a resource-intensive process, and as environmental impact awareness has increased over time, so has stringent environmental regulations. As a result, responsible water practices have become central to modern mining operations.
This is where AquaHive comes in.
AquaHive is a smart, remote monitoring platform that provides real-time data analysis – even from the world’s most isolated and volatile locations. It connects to a vast selection of industrial sensors and offers flexible deployment options. The AquaHive’s custom built-in reporting system facilitates environmental compliance and long-term planning while keeping users in the know with real-time alerts of critical events.
The company is involved in many exciting things at the moment. They recently attended the Perumin 34th Annual Mining Convention in Arequipa, Peru and have established market validation by signing multiple new demo clients, including Teck-Elkview Mine Operations and Falco Resources.
When it comes to the future of AquaHive, the team is diligently working to build more intelligence into the AquaHive Data Platform. “We are currently working on a customizable dashboard that would allow the user to personalize key performance indicators,” says Mujungu Museru, Engineer at AquaHive. “The dashboard will act as the information aggregator for the team by tracking key monitoring information for different locations that show the status of the water monitoring project, its progress and the goals that need to be achieved.”
AquaHive is part of the North Forge Startup Program and has an office in the Smartpark Innovation Hub. “North Forge has helped train some of our junior staff by giving them a crash course on aspects related to business education,” says Museru. “They’ve also made us aware of funding available to small businesses and offered advice on how to apply for different grants.”
The Innovation Hub is an environment of collaboration and innovation, giving tenants like AquaHive the opportunity to expand and continue to make a name for themselves in the industry.
