We created AquaHive to be more than a way to collect data, but as a system that has the ability to accurately support and inform sustainable processes, helping the mining industry and the environment to coexist.
CONDITIONS ARE TOUGH, SO ARE WE
WE KNOW REMOTE. WE LIVE, CREATE, INNOVATE AND WORK IN SOME OF THE MOST REMOTE PLACES ON EARTH, WHERE CONDITIONS PUSH THE ENVELOPE EVERYDAY.
AquaHive represents the highest quality of environmental monitoring instrumentation. Our systems excel in even the harshest environments, as a weatherproof solution that can withstand rain, snow and temps as low as -40C, with an unlimited power supply.
No matter the conditions, AquaHive makes downtime and data lapses a thing of the past, with secured cloud storage and backup data stored on a military grade SD card.
The greatest technology in the world is useless unless it works where you need it to. AquaHive has proven to be a rugged solution for all climates and environments.
