ABB together with Claro and Nokia carries out satellite telematics tests in Chile with Gold Fields’ Salares Norte

ABB working with Claro and Nokia has tested telematics using satellite connectivity between the Gold Fields’ Salares Norte gold mining project located near Copiapo at 4,700 m above sea level and Chilean capital Santiago, some 1,200 km away. The tests showed that it is possible to connect technologies located thousands of kilometres away, with totally isolated areas.
