The Brains behind cutting energy waste for major uranium producer

The uranium mine in Kazakhstan

 

The company, based at ideaSpace City, is a specialist in resilient communications infrastructure and data analytics software.

It has partnered with KazAtomProm Khazakstan through its R&D subsidiary, Institute for High Technologies, to install its Intelligent Mining solution at KazAtomProm’s Taukent Mining and Chemical Enterprise, an in-situ operation extracting uranium oxide in south Kazakhstan.

IntelliSense.io deployed its Brains WSN (wireless sensor network) at the well block sites to collect secure asset performance data over a wide geographical area. Intelligence is delivered to KazAtomProm through Brains.app, a web-based analytics software application that delivers optimisation recommendations to operators in the mine.

Users are able to gather insight into the well-pumping system efficiency, identify energy waste and track mine performance over time. Brains.app also analyses historical and real-time data to deliver predictions related to well maintenance and flow targets.

Prof Serik Kozhakhmetov, CEO of Institute for High Technologies, said: “By analysing the data in real time through modern high-performance computing systems, we are now able to identify energy waste, flow deviations and predict future system performance that was not possible before.

“Institute for High Technologies and IntelliSense.io are now partnering to roll out the technology solution to mining sites across Kazakhstan.”

Focus on a Founder with Alex Grigore - Celebrating 10 Years of community

Jul 01, 2020

It was 10 years ago in June that ideaSpace welcomed its first member. The first of its kind in Cambridge, ideaSpace became home to a range of exciting start-ups – many of which have gone on to great success. We grew too – opening a second office in the city centre in 2013 and ideaSpace South three years later, on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. We are continuing to celebrate a decade of community with our ‘Focus on a Founder’ series. This week we spoke to Alexandra Grigore of Simprints who joined ideaSpace back in 2014.
