The Regional Civil Protection has launched a tender aimed at technological adaptation and overcoming the lock-in constraints existing on the hydro-nivo-meteorological-climatic monitoring network for Civil Protection purposes. The contract includes the maintenance service for 4 years, possibly extendable for another 2 years. The Friuli Region with the award of this contract to SIAP+MICROS confirmed the value of the technological solutions already offered by the Company to other institutional clients.
The solution proposed by SIAP+MICROS for overcoming the technological lock-in is tested and reliable. It has been appreciated in many administrations and has found strong recognition on a technical level also in Friuli Venezia Giulia for the following reasons:
• High quality of the project to upgrade the UHF radio communication infrastructure based on high-performance equipment and robust technical choices, capable of guaranteeing high levels of redundancy of the radio sections;
• Consolidated and tested solutions for overcoming existing technological lock-in constraints. In particular, the use of the standard Modbus protocol on all technological layers (sensors, data loggers and data centers) is a guarantee of a total and definitive opening of the system to possible integrations. These are proven and reliable solutions that have already been appreciated by other important customers such as the Regional Hydrological and Geological Service of Tuscany, the ARPA Veneto, the Civil Protection of Campania, the Interregional Agency of the River Po, the Higher Institute for the Environmental Protection and Research (ISPRA), the Centro Maree of the Municipality of Venice and numerous reclamation consortia.
The new monitoring network is characterized by a very high level of redundancy to the advantage of resilience which will allow constant, precise and punctual monitoring of all data detected even during extreme events.
This further confirmation places Siap + Micros at the top in Italy in the design, production and construction of monitoring networks of environmental parameters in real time characterized by very high performance in terms of operation, safety, transparency, openness and standardization.
