Mining and Construction

Fixed physical obstacles can be a constant headache for mining and construction machine control operators. Receiving a reliable and accurate GNSS position for your backhoe loader against a cliff face is difficult; obtaining a position for an earthmover in an open pit mine with high iridium resistance is even more challenging. These conditions can impede productivity and cause safety failures because your control station can’t keep a fix on the location of each machine.

Septentrio’s GNSS receivers guarantee reliable and consistently accurate GNSS positioning in the field. That’s why leading mining and construction machine control integrators around the world employ Septentrio’s equipment: controlling wheels and loaders, drilling in the precise location of minerals and fleet-managing their machines improves productivity and eliminate collisions.

If you deploy heavy machinery and want to improve productivity and safety at your site, let's discuss how we can help you achieve your goal. Contact our mining and construction expert today.
