REAL-TIME MONITORING AND WARNING SYSTEM ABOUT WATER TORBIDITY LEVEL DURING DRAGING OPERATIONS IN THE PORT

Siap+Micros has realized a real-time system for monitoring the turbidity in the water caused by the dredging operations of about 60,000 cubic meters from the seabed of the Monfalcone’s Port (North Adriatic Sea).

The system is composed of three measurement points equipped with data acquisition and processing devices connected to high-precision turbidity sensors and to real-time data transmission devices. The whole system is designed to operate in marine environments. The system provided includes software PolarisWEB. It is a customized product for supervisioning remotely the monitored sites and for managing the alarms connected to the turbidity thresholds.

The system implemented is aimed to regulate the dredging operations in the port observing the legal limits about the turbidity in marine waters and reducing the environmental impacts produced by the dredges.

Here the video made by the Italian Television News realized for the presentation of the dredging activities started at the port of Monfalcone.
