  • Solar/wind power for noise monitoring terminals

    Solar Power Solutions A noise monitoring terminal’s (NMT) low power consumption and its ability to operate fully without power hungry cooling and heating units inside its enclosure mean that it is suitable for power from solar panels. The NMT may be continuously powered by battery which in turn is kept charged via solar energy. This solution is most appropriate in areas where there ...

  • Amassing Wind Information

    Wind is a variable resource, but not an indecipherable one. Second Wind encourages harnessing the full range of wind sensing technologies that are available today. When it comes to wind information, much attention is focused on the choice of wind measurement technology and data collection practices in wind resource assessment and project design. Right now, wind data plays a limited role in the ...


  • Weather claims and wind safety

    Anybody working in the construction industry either here in the UK or anywhere else in the world is likely to know that the weather can present us with particular hazards. While rain, ice and snow are particularly dangerous to work in, we must always be aware that the wind is also likely to make conditions unsafe, particularly for those who work at height and those who ...

  • Wind turbine controlling of the future

    Higher, more robust, more reliable: Parallel to the growing requirements for wind turbines, the requirements for monitoring sensors grow as well. But how can wind sensor manufacturers fulfil these wishes? And how should a future wind sensors look like? After analysing the current conditions and trends on the wind energy market, our CEO Klaus Hirzel compiled a wish list for future wind sensors. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Hourly NOx concentrations and wind direction in the vicinity of a street intersection

    This study relates NOxconcentrations and wind (speed and direction) measured inside an asymmetric street canyon, with ambient wind. The monitoring site is located near a street intersection. The wind measured at the domestic airport located in the city, near the coast, has been considered as ambient wind. Wind direction at the monitoring site inside the canyon is mainly from the E, NE, W and NW ...

  • Integrated solar and wind energy powers oil recovery system

    Recovery of free-product petroleum at the former St. Croix Alumina (SCA) site in Kingshill on St. Croix, VI, is addressing ground-water contamination caused by past releases of fuel and refined petroleum at SCA. The oil recovery system employs wind-driven turbine compressors (WTCs), wind-driven electric generators (WEGs), and photovoltaic (PV) panels to power pneumatic and electric submersible ...

  • 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 ...

  • Vancouver public library green roof monitoring project

    Introduction: Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) initiated this study to add to the pool of information on Best Management Practices (BMPs) and Low Impact Development (LID) methods. In June 2003, PWGSC partnered with Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd. to conduct a year long monitoring project on the Vancouver Public Library green roof. The purpose of this project is to assess ...

  • Water Quality Monitoring and Testing Using an Environmental Logger

    Intelligent dataTaker System from CAS DataLoggers Water disruptions typically occur after a large amount of water has rapidly collected in a catchment area. As a result this water is subject to continual monitoring and testing for a variety of chemical and biological agents as well as clarity, rate of movement, and water levels for environmental management. Turbidity, conductivity, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Online Odors Monitoring in Waste Water Treatment Plants

    Odors are very distinct air contaminants as they generate nuisances (see note at the end). The factors playing a role in the determination of odor annoyance are : odor concentration and intensity, frequency, appreciation, duration, synergy and location. Chromatotec proposes an automated solution to well identify the origin and the level of odors. Technology Description We offer a ...

  • 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 ...

  • EPA wind farm project for open space and site noise evaluation and measurement criteria

    EPA is a Cabinet level executive agency responsible for protecting and conserving the environment in the Republic of China including air quality, noise control, monitoring and inspection of the environment, solid waste, recycling, sustainable development and international cooperation. It is led by the Minister for Environment, Stephen Shu-hung Shen. The Environmental Protection Agency has evolved ...

  • Monitoring greenhouse gas emissions from hydroelectric reservoirs in northern Quebec, Canada

    Surface waters of natural freshwater bodies are capable of releasing far more carbon into the atmosphere than they absorb (Cole et al. 1994). Artificial reservoirs are also known to have environmental impacts which include greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (Rosenberg et al. 1997, Fearnside et al. 2004, Tremblay et al. 2005). Therefore the inclusion of hydroelectric facilities as part of an overall ...

  • Long-term noise monitoring – how a new approach leads to a better result

    Good Neighbours Limit their Noise Impact Long-term noise monitoring has taken place in various applications for many years. Business such as airports, power stations, refineries, mines, etc., may be required to perform continuous noise monitoring to ensure legal operating conditions are not breached, and to demonstrate to local authorities and communities that the business continues to be a good ...

  • 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 ...
