Empowering authorities by monitoring the air quality and odour levels in the Port of Duqm, Oman - Case Study
The Duqm port harbours hundreds of workers in the logistics/supply chain throughout the year. This resulted in a dust-laden atmosphere with the release of harmful gases. This is why establishing an air quality monitoring system was essential to ensure safe breathing conditions for the workers. The Duqm Port used to manually examine, validate and test the air quality, which was laborious and time-consuming. It was challenging to keep track on a regular basis this way. Additionally, with the power supply being heavily dependent on diesel in the port, it was essential for Duqm Port to have a monitor that functions with a backup battery in case of power failures.
Oizom with National Energy Center, Oman, offered 1 unit of Polludrone Smart and 1 unit of Odosense to the DUQM Port in Oman for monitoring the air quality, dust, odour and other hazardous gaseous emissions in the port. Both Odosense and Polludrone come with a battery backup option that can function during power outages, thus eliminating the requirement of energy from diesel round the clock. The authorities in the port need not manually collect the data from the air monitoring stations, as both Polludrone and Odosense come with a Data Analysing & Visualising platform that can do the work of showcasing the data retrieved from the devices on a real-time basis. The authorities can customize the data viewing experience by changing the time intervals according to the requirement.
Oizom’s smart, compact and robust air quality and odour monitoring system in the DUQM port has helped the authorities in accessing the air quality and odour level data on a real-time basis. The Battery backup options have enabled both the devices to function 24/7, thus saving the energy generated by diesel at the night. Safe working conditions have been ensured for the workers in Duqm Port. The authorities are now empowered to make appropriate decisions to mitigate exposure to harmful air pollutants.
