Oil & Gas (Cloud-Based) Time-Lapse Construction Video
The client, a major oil sands producer, required a time-lapse construction video of their SAGD facility. The location that was selected for the camera system provided an optimal view of the site, however a primary power source and network connectivity was not available.
Our team designed and fabricated a rugged solar-powered camera system that can operate in extremely cold climates. The Remote Service Unit (RSU) generated enough energy to power the camera and broadband radio over a 3-year period. Rigstar’s Network Operations Centre (NOC) monitored the radio link and battery level to insure the camera system was capturing all the events.
The camera system maintained 100% uptime and successfully documented the 3-year project. The end user had complete visibility of the site from start to finish and could download the HD video at any given time.
