– Installation of a solar powered air quality monitoring station, totally autonomous, to measure the air quality
– Signature of a cooperation protocol with AtmoSud to highlight the French know-how notoriety in the Mediterranean area
ENVEA (FR0010278762 – ALTEV), the European leader in monitoring solutions for industries and the environment, announces today the installation of a complete autonomous station – a world first – as well as the signature of a cooperation protocol of with AtmoSud.
Installation of the 1st autonomous air quality monitoring station in the world
After years of research and development, ENVEA, very invested in ecodesign, is successfully launching a new series of criteria gas and particulates monitors, offering very low energy consumption, insensitive to temperature variations and 24V power supplies. These innovations allow to get rid of air conditioning systems in AQMS stations located in hot areas, including the Mediterranean countries, the Middle East or Southeast Asia.
For the first time in the world, a complete standalone monitoring station will be able to be installed in isolated site, working 24h / 24 and 7j / 7 being supplied only by solar panels. This innovation is major for air pollution monitoring networks for many sites and countries, where power grids are often unavailable, unstable or very random with frequent power outages. The first experimental stations are installed in Poissy at the ENVEA headquarters, as well as in the heart of Marseille (a port city in southern France) to continue the joint research work with AtmoSud, one of the French Approved Air Quality Monitoring Association (AASQA – Associations Agréées de Surveillance de la qualité de l’air).
This cooperation agreement also applies to portable micro-sensors, as well as mercury, VOCs and fine particulates monitoring, within the frame of the maritime pollution research and studies.
Valorisation of the notoriety of the French know-how in the Mediterranean area
As part of their joint research work, ENVEA and AtmoSud, the approved association for Air Quality Monitoring in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, have signed a cooperation protocol. A true partnership, it will pool ENVEA’s innovation capability and AtmoSud’s Mediterranean field expertise.
Francois Gourdon, President and Founder of ENVEA, welcomes these important innovations and the signing of this protocol with Pierre-Charles Maria, President of AtmoSud and adds:
“ENVEA continues its strong global growth with remarkable orders recorded since the beginning of the year: air quality monitoring networks in Colombia, the renewal of the ozone monitors of the Canadian national surveillance network, mercury emission monitors in India… The year 2018 has ended in line with our expectations with a confirmed turnover of more than € 90 million “.
About ATMO France
Within the French air quality law a system for monitoring air quality was developed until 1 January 2000. The monitoring activities is delegated to approved bodies that link the State, regional authorities and industrials to consumer or environmental protection associations and representatives from the health sector. The monitoring activities are delegated to approved bodies that link the State, regional authorities and industrials to consumer or environmental protection associations and representatives from the health sector. ATMO France federalizes the monitoring network of these Associations Agréées de Surveillance de la qualité de l’air (AASQA – Approved Air Quality Monitoring Association).
