This initiative will strengthen OFB’s offering to its hosted clients. Fotenn will work with the Company to help design a digital replica of Ocean Falls’ mining facility where clients will be able to view and manage their hardware in a virtual environment.
In this virtual setting, hosted miners will be able to view critical information like their unit’s running temperature, perform reboots, shutdowns, and other diagnostic procedures through controls connected via an API to their real-world counterparts.
“We are excited to be working with such an esteemed and renowned Canadian firm as Fotenn. Ocean Falls continues to work to bolster its mining operations to best support clients, and this includes creating cutting edge tools that make hosting with Ocean Falls Blockchain easier and more convenient,” said Oded Orgil, CEO at OFB.
Fotenn has extensive experience in real-world land-use planning and urban design, working on projects such as the Glen Abbey Master Plan in Oakville, the Tannery District in Cobourg, ON, Gibbard District in Napanee, ON, and the 34-hectare Lock 18 Master Plan in Cornwall, ON, among other developments.
Ocean Falls will also explore a digital twinning application for golf courses in association with the Company’s decentralized captive insurance solution, SuretyBlock. SuretyBlock aims to provide trade associations, organizations, and event organizers with the option to insure themselves against various liabilities using the power of blockchain technology to pool and distribute funds.
The first decentralized product from SuretyBlock, called Eagle1, will be launching this month. Eagle1 is a Hole-in-One insurance platform for the golf industry, making it easier, quicker, and more efficient for hole-in-one prizes to be obtained and issued on golf courses.
