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 corporation 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.
This project goal was to establish a comprehensive traffic management system for monitoring sensitive areas. In the frame of this project, SENSIA applied its expertise in infrared gas detection in the development of a prototype for vehicle gas emissions measurement in a multilane road. In particular, this system has been validated for CO2 and CO measurement.
Gas Sensing System for SF6 can be used as a handheld system for punctual inspections, in which an operator carry out a visual inspection of the facilities, circuit, electric installation, etc. from a safe distance or as a fixed system for constant monitoring.
