Sight Power Inc is a company headquartered in Ottawa, Canada and with offices and development centres in Johannesburg, South Africa and Kharkiv, Ukraine.
The company was established by the group of businessmen, engineers and scientists who have practical experience in the development of analytical information and data modelling systems for mining and oil and gas industries as well as in the design, assembly and application of special C&I equipment. In addition for many years the same team has been developing the decision support systems based on the monitoring and mathematical modelling of various natural phenomena.
The Sight Power founders and employees have a lot of experience in carrying out the specialised consulting services for the global mining industry. They consulted such big international companies as De Beers, Nexen, Husky, Autodesk, Huber Energy, Shaft Sinkers, Metso Minerals, UralKaliy, EuroChem, Ukrainian State Oil and Gas company etc. for whom they developed the unique technological solutions.
Today the ultimate goal of Sight Power technological activity is to develop the replicated automated monitoring system for the mine-shafts and transportation tunnels with all corresponding internal infrastructure. The proposed system will consist of the specialized mobile high-speed laser scanning and high-resolution digital photographic hardware and software with AI elements for post-processing of the obtained data.
The proposed technology will result in:
- better quality and reliability of inspection data;
- significant reduction in production interruptions time (increased shaft availability for hoisting resulting in extra mine’s revenue);
- improved mining safety due to mine personnel limited exposure to the dangerous mine-shaft working conditions as well as the earlier detection of potential safety hazards.
The practical result of technology application will be the quick and efficient report generation on the current shaft conditions describing and specifying potential safety hazards and discovered defects in shaft internal infrastructure and lining. The interactive shaft analysis software with powerful 3D visualization engine will allow planning of shaft service and maintenance schedule in virtual reality mode in front of a computer screen.
Sight Power service department also provides technological solutions based on the complex information analysis during the exploration, design and exploitation stages of mineral deposits development combining geological and economic data analysis with environmental and safety tasks.
Sight Power provides spatial enterprise solution for mining companies. This product allows the client to obtain an effective access to the distributed spatial data regardless of its volume and the actual location of data servers.
