Orbital Eye Monitors Pipeline Safety After Train Accident in the Netherlands

Last week, a tragic train accident occurred in the Netherlands, caused by a collision with a small construction crane that was on the train track.
As a provider of advanced monitoring solutions, Orbital Eye is closely monitoring the affected area where some of our customers’ pipelines are located. With our satellite-based monitoring solution, we detected not only the derailed train wagons but also the aftermath of the train incident. This means that our customers can keep an eye on the repair works taking place and if these works are affecting their pipeline. For example, we detected that the vehicles and machines used for the repair works are brought on-site via a newly created access road, which runs over the pipeline.
