  • Weather monitoring network equipped with Lufft wind sensor VENTUS - Case Study

    In 2010 we won a tender for 30 ultrasonic anemometers (as a part of meteorological weather stations). The National Weather Service of Mexico (CONAGUA) wanted to build weather stations in the southwest of Mexico (States of Chiapas and Tabasco). According to the customer, Ventus-UMB is a very robust, yet precise sensor with a very good price / performance ratio. Moreover, data transmission via ...

  • Weather Data for Noise Monitoring

    “Weather conditions are the single largest variable factor in how sound travels over large distances,” says Steve Bilawchuk principal partner and engineer at ACI Acoustical Consultants Inc. “Wind speed and wind direction are of crucial importance.” ACI is an acoustical engineering consulting company based in Alberta, Canada, which uses ...

  • How Accurate is Your Monitor?

    When you consider the many regulations and guidelines that health and safety officers and first responders are faced with, it is amazing they maintain the ability to detect such a wide variety of hazardous pollutants and toxic agents.  There is no lack of regulations governing how to monitor chemical compounds, and the list grows longer all the time.  New standards for portable gas ...

  • Construction and Civil Infrastructures Monitoring Systems

    Civil infrastructures are usually monitored through its whole life cycle. SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) technologies enable the estimation of the structural state and detection of structural change that affects the performance of a structure. Two discriminating factors in SHM are the time-scale of the change (how quickly the state changes) and the severity of the change. These factors ...

  • What is Long Term Noise Monitoring?

    It might sound simple, but long term noise monitoring can mean different things to different people. There is no standard definition for what long term noise monitoring is, but here is a summary that covers the basics. I first presented this presentation at the IOA Eastern Branch meeting and wanted to share my thoughts on what classes as long term noise monitoring. I’ll also discuss ...

  • Wind-driven SVE system extracts VOCs from landfill

    An innovative soil vapor extraction (SVE) system has operated at the former Ferdula Landfill site in Frankfort, NY, for the past 10 years. The system relies on wind-driven vacuum processes rather than electrically powered air blowers to extract volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the landfill. After a two-year trial beginning in 1998, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ...

  • Monitoring network for Scottish ports - Case Studies

    Historically, ferry masters operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to a port and on arrival visually assess the weather and tide conditions before deciding whether safe berthing alongside the pier or quayside would be possible. This wastes time and fuel, and can causes immense frustration among passengers, who may see ferries come close to a port, but thereafter depart ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Continuous, Centralized Monitoring Drives O&M Optimization

    In a survey conducted by Wind Energy Update this year, 80% of wind turbine owners indicated they take either a predictive or preventative approach to maintenance. Furthermore, 77% indicated that they deploy Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS). “If you can leverage data to increase plant performance by even 1%, you are looking at significant impacts to your revenue”, EDF’s ...

  • Case study - Precipitation monitoring in the Sierra Nevada - Spain

    This OTT Pluvio² precipitation measuring station “Tajos de Breca” is situated 2470 meters (8103.67 feet) above sea level at the southern slope of the Sierra Nevada for long term meteorological data collection. The station forms part of a measuring network named “Project Guadalfeo” which is financed by the Andalusian government and the responsible water authority. ...

  • Reduction of Train Noise Monitored by New Measurement Station

    With increasing passenger and freight traffic, the strengthening of the rail traffic is an important and actual issue. For sustainable mobility, the reduction of noise pollution caused by trains is essential. All involved parties agree on one claim: Increase railway traffic, decrease railway noise! Additional to two already existing stations measuring road traffic noises, ...

  • Application of the Most Recent Monitoring Systems in Hydro Power Plants

    Abstract The paper describes main reasons for refurbishment of hydro power plants and summarizes the most frequent works during refurbishment. A special attention is paid to the process of refurbishment of the electric equipment, in the first line generators and excitation systems, and integration of the most contemporary monitoring system. The paper talks about some of the methods of ...

  • Noise monitoring system appeals to Reno-Tahoe Airport`s neighbours

    Noise monitoring and reduction has been top priority for Krys Bart ever since she took the helm of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) a decade ago. As RTAA president and CEO, Bart wants Reno-Tahoe International Airport to be a ‘good neighbour’, as it serves more than 4.4 million domestic and international passengers each year. The airport’s location right in the centre of ...
