The high-performance TOSIBOX® Lock 500 developed by the Finnish company Tosibox Oy matches Arctic Drilling Company’s needs perfectly. TOSIBOX Lock 500 is installed to Arctic Drilling Company’s moving drilling units at the company’s factory in Finland, before they’re shipped off to work sites. For maintenance purposes, servicemen use TOSIBOX Keys for establishing a remote connection, after the drilling unit is in use anywhere in the world.
For the moving drilling units, a compact installation of one remote access device was considered optimal. The Lock 500i version with integrated modem does not require any additional pieces, is of compact size and fits well with other systems. Thanks to the Lock 500’s dual SIM feature, Arctic Drilling Company can utilise various operators for connectivity wherever the drilling units may be.
“Thanks to TOSIBOX, we have been able to solve 80% of issues remotely this year. On an annual basis, the savings from remote maintenance can be measured in millions of euros,” says Joni Niskala, Manager, Maintenance at Arctic Drilling Company.
TOSIBOX creates a fully secure, two-way connection for remote access and data collection. Thanks to the massive throughput of TOSIBOX Lock 500, Arctic Drilling Company can also collect large amounts of real-time data about the drilling units’ performance for product development and improvement purposes. As the data is processed by an external partner, easy access management was of high importance.
TOSIBOX Virtual Central Lock acts as the platform for centralised access management. The data analysis partner’s server storing the collected data is also connected to the Virtual Central Lock, and the partner’s representatives get access to just that data and nothing else.
”The need for secure high performance connectivity solutions generated by the fast growth of the IoT is visible even in the mining industry. Tosibox offers evident savings to global players, who benefit from performing operations remotely,” says Jarno Limnéll, CEO at Tosibox.
