The research group in charge of Martian dust and gas detection instrument joins SENSIA’s GaSeS project. Infrared Lab of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (LIR-UC3M) is responsible of Dust Sensor instrument, foreseen to be on board of the ExoMars 2020 surface platform.
AIRBUS DS relies on SENSIA’s Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) Technology to monitor the leaktightness of the different fluid systems within their aircrafts.
SENSIA will attend EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS’ NIGHT 2017 A dissemination action about GaSeS SME Instrument H2020
SENSIA’s scientific team will be at European Researchers’ Night 2017, held in Madrid at Espacio Fundación Telefónica next September 29th and promoted by Fundación para el Conocimiento Madri+d.
Assistants will be introduced to SENSIA’s GaSeS Project, funded by European Commission H2020’s SME Instrument. To this end, it has been prepared hands-on demonstrations of SENSIA’s infrared camera for fugitive gas emissions imaging. Goal: to explain the scientific and technological ground on gas imaging.
SENSIA’s cameras have achieved outstanding results in their first field test scheduled within GaSeS project. Energy provider TOTAL organized this test at their facilities in Lacq, which was attended by the main actors on fugitive gas emissions detection on industrial sites.
SENSIA’s project GaSeS: The first low cost optical gas imager for fugitive emissions mitigation, increasing energy efficiency in industry, has been recently notified by the European Commission as a selected winner of a Grant on the Horizon 2020 – SME Instrument Phase 2.
VIRA Gas Imging is a new company that brings together the know-how and experience of three big partners: ENAGÁS, SENSIA and UNIVERSIDAD CARLOS III (Madrid). As results of this industrial, technological and scientific merger, VIRA Gas Imaging offers technological solutions for gas detection in the Oil & Gas Industry by means of its own cameras (OGI) and customized specific solutions.
ENAGAS has awarded first prize to an idea in which SENSIA participates. The program rewards innovative initiatives and this year the winning idea focuses on the development of a low cost technology for multidetector flame and exhaust gas detection, following SENSIA developments.
SENSIA has succeeded in overcoming H2020 SME Instrument Phase 1. This European Program seeks to boost the best strategic plans of innovatives SMEs, thanks to which SENSIA will develop “First low cost handheld infrared camera for fugitive emissions, early detection and location, increasing energy efficiency in industrial plants, infrastructures and utilities” project.
SO2 gas leak detection survey at zinc production facilities in San Juan de Nieva, Asturias. This work was carried out using an infrared camera specially designed by SENSIA, along with exclusive SO2 detection algorithms. It was one of the first steps before coming up with Gas Sensing System for SO2, SENSIA’s optical gas imaging.
For this work, SENSIA developed an innovative system for natural gas leaks detection. The goal was to combine best features of unattended detection (from point detectors) and leaks location from infrared cameras: a 24/7 monitoring semi-autonomous system able to warning and help an operator to detect the leak at its source.
