iDMS: Harnessing the power of satellite technology to proactively manage reservoir safety

June 21, 2021

Wednesday, 30 June, 15:00–16:00 BST

Following the successful launch of Binnies and Rezatec’s Intelligent Dam Monitoring System (iDMS) to the UK market, the strategic partnership is delighted to launch the unique satellite-based technology to the European market. Join us on 30 June for a webinar discussion on iDMS and how the power of satellite technology can proactively manage reservoir safety.

Combining Binnies’ reservoir expertise and digital ecosystem services with Rezatec’s leading geospatial artificial intelligence techniques, iDMS is a remote monitoring service that uses geospatial data to pinpoint any movement in a dam’s structure, down to a few millimetres of displacement. The satellite information, which also identifies other indicators of problems with dam infrastructure, such as vegetation moisture and vigour that can signal water seepage, can deliver strategic reservoir improvements and operational and commercial benefits.

In the webinar, Rachel Pether, Binnies All Reservoirs Panel Engineer and Tim Vallings, Rezatec Chief Commercial Officer, will introduce the unique iDMS risk management tool and show how it can support and enhance existing reservoir safety best practice.
