EnerTek has designed, built and tested a fully automatic autonomous water quality system, the HYDROLAB. The HYDROLAB is designed to float on the surface of any tailings pond and transmit water quality via radio or GPRS to the mines central control. We have supplied and installed our first HYDROLAB in one of the worlds largest new copper mine projects, located in the Apurímac region of Peru.

HYDROLAB Design and Assembly by EnerTek


The HYDROLAB is deployed using a custom built cableway system, this enables two operators to safely deploy and recover the HYDROLAB without the use of a boat or any dangerous activity.
