Asset Monitoring

From inception to decommissioning, infrastructure construction is a complex undertaking. Many decisions need to be made and having high quality data available allows stakeholders to make better and more informed decisions.

Geomotion’s comprehensive monitoring solutions are an integral part of the puzzle of providing information that can be analysed over time. The data obtained through these systems provide quality insights into the behaviour of structures and the ground below them.

If critical thresholds are met, key stakeholders can be alerted automatically, and action plans enacted to protect the public, environment, and workers.

Geomotion specialises in installing monitoring systems that can be used to predict issues such as slope failures or excessive settlement, allowing for preventative maintenance to be completed. Data from these systems can also be used after the fact to evaluate the effectiveness of maintenance, whether it is preventative or routine.

Monitoring can be invaluable for engineers to obtain data to determine if designs are performing as planned. In the same vein, that data can be used to indicate when the geotechnical performance is poor, and when the design should be revised to prevent failure.

A bespoke monitoring system can be designed using more sensors in more critical areas, resulting in a higher data density and reliability. Get in touch with us to discuss how we can assist you on your project.

Railway Monitoring

Railways are critical pieces of infrastructure that are built on their reliability and safety. Many industries rely on rail infrastructure to transport goods and they provide a crucial link in public transport systems.

Geomotion’s tailor-made monitoring solutions offer a smart way to manage and reduce risks for railway infrastructure. Data from these systems can be used by asset managers to minimise track downtime, evaluate the effectiveness of maintenance and respond to developing issues before they become critical.

Problematic areas along the train track, such as soft soil or areas with more slope instability, can have more sensors installed. This results in higher data density, more knowledge, and reassurance for asset managers.

Railway deformation systems install a series of sensors to monitor railway track longitudinal and transversal deformation, often in critical areas like those near tunnel construction or tracks with a landslide risk.

Benefits

  • Reduce costs over lifetime of railway assets
  • Increase productivity of maintenance works
  • Enhance the safety of railway workers and customers
  • Provide more insight from manual inspections
  • Higher data density for critical areas

Dam Monitoring

Dams are both complex and critical pieces of infrastructure that require a comprehensive monitoring system.

Geomotion’s monitoring solutions provide data that can be used to prevent failures and to maximise the effectiveness of routine maintenance. Data can be analysed over time, providing quality insight into the behaviour of the structure and the ground below it.

If critical thresholds are met, key stakeholders can be alerted automatically, and action plans can be enacted to protect the public, environment and workers.

Geomotion can provide a bespoke monitoring system that utilises more sensors in critical areas or areas of more concern. This results in a higher data density and more reliability.

According to the Association of State Dam Safety Officials, 30% of dam failures are caused by foundation defects such as settlement and slope instability. And another 20% of failures are caused by seepage.

Failures can be predicted and monitored by using instruments available at Geomotion such as Inclinometers, Settlement Plates, Extensometers, V-Notch Weirs and Piezometers. Data from these instruments can be used to prioritise critical areas for maintenance, increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of regular maintenance.

Benefits

  • Reduce costs over the lifetime of assets
  • Increase productivity and effectiveness of maintenance works
  • Provides insight into structural and geotechnical behaviour
  • Automatic alarms and alerts for exceeding threshold values
  • Comprehensive monitoring for critical areas

Earthwork and Excavation Monitoring

Earthworks and excavations can be very disruptive to the surrounding area, including other structures within its zone of influence. This increases the number of stakeholders involved in the project, who all need to be informed and involved in decision making processes.

Geomotion specialises in the assembly, supply and installation of comprehensive monitoring systems that provide data that can be analysed over time, providing quality insight into the condition of the earthworks themselves, as well as their effect on any surrounding structures.

If sensor readings breach a critical threshold, key stakeholders can be alerted automatically and action plans can be enacted to protect the public, environment and workers.

Historical data from a monitoring system provided and installed by Geomotion can be used to predict issues such as slope failures signalled by inclinometers or settlement plates showing excessive settlement, allowing for preventative maintenance to be completed.

Data from the system can also be used after the fact to evaluate the effectiveness of maintenance whether it is preventative or routine.

Monitoring can be invaluable for engineers to obtain data to determine if designs are performing as planned. In the same vein, that data can be used to indicate when the geotechnical performance is poor, and when the design should be revised to prevent failure.

A bespoke monitoring system can be designed using more sensors in more critical areas, resulting in a higher data density and reliability. Get in touch with us to discuss how we can assist you on your project. You can find some of the projects we’ve worked here.

Tunnel Monitoring

Tunnel construction is an immensely complicated task. Ground movements induced by tunnelling not only affect the tunnel but other structures within the tunnels zone of influence, vastly increasing the number of stakeholders involved in the project.

Having high quality, automatically collected data allows all the stakeholders to be more informed and make better decisions. And a comprehensive monitoring regime is an integral part of the puzzle of providing this information.

Geomotion specialises in the assembly, supply and installation of monitoring systems that provide data that can be analysed over time, providing quality insight into the behaviour of the tunnel and the ground surrounding it. If critical thresholds are met, key stakeholders can be alerted automatically, and action plans enacted to protect the public, environment, and workers.

Geomotion stocks a variety of instruments that can be used to monitor tunnels and provide data for engineers to determine if designs are performing as planned. In the same vein, that data can be used to indicate when the geotechnical performance is poor, and when the design should be revised to avoid failures.

A bespoke monitoring system can be designed using more sensors in more critical areas, resulting in higher data density and reliability within the system.

Benefits

  • Reduce costs over the lifetime of assets
  • Predict more urgent areas for maintenance
  • Enhance the safety of workers
  • Provides insight into structural and geotechnical behaviour
  • Automatic alarms and alerts for exceeding threshold values
  • Validate or revise designs
  • Comprehensive monitoring for critical areas

Mine Monitoring

Mining operations are expanding and becoming more complex, bringing with it multiple geotechnical challenges. Many decisions are made on a daily basis and high-quality data should be feeding these decisions.

Geomotion specialises in the assembly, supply and installation of comprehensive monitoring systems that can be used in and around mines to provide crucial information to stakeholders.

Data can be analysed over time, providing quality insights into the behaviour of the structure and the ground below it. If sensor readings breach a critical threshold, key stakeholders can be alerted automatically, and action plans enacted to protect the public, environment, and workers.

Historical data from a monitoring system can be used to predict issues like slope failures signalled as excessive settlement by inclinometers and settlement plates, allowing for preventative maintenance to be completed. Data from the system can also be used after the fact to evaluate the effectiveness of maintenance whether it is preventative or routine.

Several aspects of mining operations can be monitored, from the mines themselves to tailings dams and surrounding areas.

The data obtained through monitoring can be invaluable for engineers to determine if the mine is performing as planned. In the same vein, that data can be used to indicate when the geotechnical performance is poor, and when the operations should be changed to prevent failures.

A bespoke monitoring system can be designed using more sensors in more critical areas, resulting in a higher data density and more reliability.

Benefits

  • Reduce costs over the lifetime of the mine
  • Enhance the safety of workers
  • Provides insight into structural and geotechnical behaviour
  • Automatic alarms and alerts for exceeding threshold values
  • Comprehensive monitoring for critical areas
