Maintenance service for four immision control stations to the combined cycle thermal power plant of plana del vent

Alpiq Energía España, S.A.U.

Areas of Activity: Environmental Quality

Sectors of Operation: Air Quality

The combined cycle thermal power of Plana del Vent (Alpiq Energía), located in Tarragona, Spain, emits different types of pollutants that are dispersed in the environment. In order to protect environmental quality, the Generalitat de Catalunya , conditioned the start-up of the plant to the installation of a network of automatic stations to measure atmospheric pollutants, which should cover the area of influence of its emissions.
Within the scope of the project encompasses preventive, maintenance and corrective, necessary for the proper functioning of meteorological and atmospheric pollution analyzers installed, As well as ensuring the system of acquisition and transmission data from the stations, and subsequent integration into systems of public administration. Highlight that acquisition system and data mining tools offered in SAS, are based on the Ecodata.

Analyzers included in this type of stations tend to be: sulphur dioxide analyzer, oxides of nitrogen, ozone analyzer, carbon monoxide analyzer, manual and automatic high-volume particles collector.

On the other hand, the teams that make up the weather station usually being: speed and direction of wind sensor, ambient temperature and relative humidity, solar radiation, precipitation and atmospheric pressure.

The generated data in the service in addition to better environmental management of industry, allows comply with Directive 2008/50/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on ambient air quality and contribute to a cleaner Europe atmosphere.
