November 30, 2018
Leading West Coast utility company deploys the latest in connected safety, gas detection and data analytics with 24/7 live Blackline monitoring
Calgary, AB — A major utility company in the United States purchased $1.4M of Blackline Safety Corp. (TSXV: BLN) connected safety products with services to be delivered over three-years. Under this order, Blackline will deploy its combination gas detection and safety monitoring system for remote locations, comprised of G7x employee-worn monitors and vehicle-mounted G7 Bridge portable satellite base stations.
“Blackline operates at the forefront of the connected safety industry, helping businesses keep their teams safe while automating their need to ensure a gas detection program that meets regulatory compliance,” said Sean Stinson, VP Sales & Product Management at Blackline Safety. “We continue to see strong customer commitments in multiple industries, including natural gas distribution, water / wastewater and other heavy industries.”
Blackline’s G7 connected safety portfolio was built to deliver comprehensive and turn-key monitoring solutions that address the shortcomings of traditional ‘beep-and-flash’ gas detectors. Blackline’s G7x system provides a wirelessly-connected solution that delivers monitoring capability in locations beyond 3G coverage — areas that are difficult for competitor offerings to address. G7x connects workers to monitoring personnel through a satellite uplink offered by the G7 Bridge portable base station. In the event of an emergency, the live monitoring team manages a real-time emergency response directly to the employee’s location.
G7x devices are managed within Blackline Live, Blackline’s state-of-the-art web portal that provides administrative tools for businesses to manage their gas detection and safety monitoring program. Blackline Live combines comprehensive emergency response management tools, a compliance dashboard and Blackline Analytics — all in one convenient, easy-to-use cloud-hosted platform.
