Megafon makes vehicle fleet management at Kumroch Gold Mine automatic
Megafon is deploying a
vehicle monitoring system at one of the largest gold deposits in the Kamchatka Krai.
Through automation, the partner will be able to manage the vehicle fleet more
efficiently and reduce maintenance costs.
GORA, the company developing the
Kumroch Deposit, is implementing Megafon’s «Vehicle Fleet Management»
solution to connect all its vehicles to the monitoring system. Each vehicle is
equipped with a navigation module determining its coordinates and speed. Reading
data from vehicle-installed gauges, the system also monitors engine
temperature, fuel and oil levels, and other important indicators.
The modules automatically transmit
the data to the online monitoring platform. In order to have a stable signal,
MegaFon is completing the network installation at Kumroch.
The company will be able to monitor
vehicles’ movements online, understand what they are doing and, if necessary,
adjust drivers’ tasks to avoid long downtime. Megafon’s platform will also inform
when the fuel stock at the deposit runs out and will send a signal to dispatchers
to make a new purchase.
The fuel level changes in vehicles are
visible in time. Specialists can analyze fuel consumption by each vehicle and
promptly react in case of significant deviations. Engine temperature and oil
level data allow identify technical defects and send vehicles for repair in a
timely manner. This approach reduces fleet maintenance costs by up to 40%.
