Continual monitoring of millimetre displacements of ground surface or infrastructures in areas with active landslide or subsidence phenomena can be of great help for companies and professionals working in the water and sewerage network utilities, energy supply, oil and gas, and mining sectors, whilst water quality monitoring is essential for organisations managing desalination plants or freshwater reservoirs.
Using satellite and operational data, the Rheticus® platform is able to provide industry-focused geoinformation services empowering decision-making and operational activities.
Services in this fields are:
Rheticus® Network Alert was awarded the World Smart City Award 2019 as the most revolutionary service enabling predictive maintenance of pipeline networks. The service currently monitors more than 40,000 km of sewer and water pipelines managed by utility companies. Is helps reducing the cost of system maintenance by monitoring potential breakdowns of the pipes caused by subsidence or human-induced ground instability.
Rheticus® Displacement is the service devoted to providing continuous monitoring of ground displacements and infrastructure stability in areas with active landslide or subsidence, easily spotting trends and potentially anticipating risky situations and harmful events.
Thanks to Rheticus® Marine operators of desalination plants or freshwater reservoirs, inquire into waters’ quality, health and evolution over time, reaching a fascinating full picture of the state of resources, easily spotting trends and anticipating risky situations and harmful events.
Pinpointing the failure from Space: the sewerage network of Milan
Introduction Water can be a destructive force, washing away roadbeds and eroding riverbanks. Sometimes it works silently and invisibly, removing soil beneath parking lots and roads until they cave in, exposing sinkholes that shallow houses and cars. Subsidence, or when the ground begins to sink, is an indication of a problem. This does not need ... More
Turning radar data into action: slope instabilities in the urban area of Niscemi (Italy)
Introduction Land instability is a key activity to ensure people’s safety, environmental protection and the safeguarding of infrastructures and strategic assets. However, traditional campaigns for the regular monitoring of wide areas require considerable financial resources, time and are often complex to implement. Problem Niscemi is an historical village located up above a hilly area in ... More
