Drone mounted, industrial emissions measurement technology moves into production phase
Mar 06 2019 Read 285 Times
Aeromon, the company behind the compact and customisable emissions measurement devices that can be used in drone-mounted, hand-held and fixed configurations to reveal hidden industrial emissions, has announced the launch of its first commercially available product. The company aims to help industrial operators in maritime, oil and gas, waste and recycling, and pulp and paper mitigate environmental harm and meet emissions regulations in a low-cost, effective, and safe way.
“Aeromon has created the first FSC (Fuel Sulphur Content) measurement solution in the world that can be deployed on both fixed and rotary wing drones. This means industrial operators can select an emissions measuring solution with the cost point and operational capabilities they need to truly understand how their actions impact the environment – and what they can do to lower these effects,” said Aeromon CEO Teppo Virkkula.
“Our solution is already being used by the European Maritime Safety Agency to monitor maritime ships' fuel sulphur content. We want to give industry the tools it needs to take control of fugitive emissions. We have invested significant time into building a completely new solution supported by a robust supply chain, partner network and distribution channels that can scale with future demand. We are ready to help industry tackle the challenge of fugitive emissions for the long-term,” he concluded.
As of February 18th, industrial operators will be able to map fugitive emissions across a wide range of land-based and maritime locations, including those that have been traditionally difficult to access. Shipments are scheduled to begin by the end of February, with the company’s first distributor already in place for Spain and Portugal.
”We want to provide our customers with the best possible products and services to fulfill their current and future needs,” says Juan Carlos Cuchillo, Division Manager Analytica & Environmental at Izasa Scientific Spain and Portugal. “We have noticed increasing demand for emissions monitoring in our market and we were impressed by the new capabilities that Aeromon solution provides. We were happy to partner with Aeromon,” he concluded.
Aeromon’s modular BH-12 emissions measuring device can easily switch between airborne, hand-held and fixed configurations. The modular device enclosure can be configured to measure and visualize more than 70 different types of gases and particulate matter. Aeromon’s cloud service makes adjustments for local weather conditions, mapping potential leakage points and fugitive emissions hotspots on visualized maps of the monitoring areas.
The company was awarded the 2018 Frost & Sullivan Customer Value Leadership Award for developing “top-notch sensor measurement solutions with efficiency, reliability, and versatility unmatched on the market.” The company has successfully concluded pilots with a number of commercial operators, including Stora Enso, Gasum, and UPM.
