As part of the RTI together with Exprivia, which is its trustee, CAE has won the tender announced by the Ministry of the Interior for the implementation of the project aiming at strengthening the national system for crisis prevention and security management - with particular reference to the risks caused by CBRN-e agents (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive) - on behalf of the Fire Department.
The importance of strengthening the flood forecasting and warning system in Vietnam was contracted to CAE by National Hydro-Meteorological Service of Vietnam (NHMS) - Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Socialist Republic of Vietnam. The project is financed by Italian Agency for Development Cooperation and consists in the “turnkey” supply and installation of 114 new automatic stations including meteorological, hydrological, rainfall, oceanographic stations and several control centers.
CAE confirms its professionalism in surveys and field environmental analyses and establishes itself among 7 companies by winning the tender of the Autonomous Region of Valle d'Aosta for the liquid flow measurement service in riverbeds. All the instrumentation and technical know-how of CAE will be available to the Region for the next 3 years.
Our aim is to strengthen our role as a centre of technological excellence. This is why we inaugurated the new company test field, which is the only field test in Italy of its kind: approximately 400 square metres adjacent to the company facilities, set for the installation of 25 poles which have already been wired and powered, thanks to which we will be able to conduct tests and experiments to ensure an always higher quality and reliability to our products.
Municipality of Cesenatico: a virtuous example of flood risk prevention and communication to citizens
We have had the pleasure to talk to Matteo Gozzoli, mayor of Cesenatico, a municipality of the Riviera of Romagna affected by the risk of sea storms and flooding caused by a temporary rise in sea level. The local Administration has invested for years and consistently to create a prepared and resilient community. The first automatic early warning system dates back to the end of 2000, but today the municipality can count on a series of integrated and advanced solutions in order to limit the effects of flooding, make the right choices and alert the population in time.
The second edition of the Citizen Observatories for Natural Hazards and Water Management (COWM 2018) has just taken place in Venice. Guido Bernardi from CAE presented his intervention entitled: “Flash-floods, landslides and urban inundations: integration of Large Scale Monitoring Networks and Local Early Warning Systems”.
Region of Emilia-Romagna: the monitoring network reduces by half the cycle times for the acquisition of hydropluviometric data
CAE has won the tender of the Servizio Idro-Meteo-Clima (Hydro-Meteorological and Climate Service) of ARPAE for the adaptation of the real-time hydro-meteorological and climate monitoring networks connected to the "RIRER" (Rete Idrometeorologica della Regione Emilia-Romagna - Hydro-Meteorological Network of the Region of Emilia Romagna). The works will allow us to reduce by a half the current cycle times and to have centralized management of all the networks connected to the control centre in Bologna, as well as to enhance the secondary centres of the system.
The real-time operation of PG4i was shown during the trade fair event: PG4i is the new CAE stand-alone rain gauge with built-in datalogger and integrated 3G mobile modem. This is an all-in-one professional system for measuring rainfall and its intensity.
Vietnam: real-time river discharge measurements and new monitoring stations to prevent and manage floods
Once again, Italian technology has been chosen to implement a World Bank project in Vietnam. The public call for tenders was directed to local firms only and the works were let out on contract to a historical partner of our Bolognese firm. The works include the supplying and installation of 14 new stations equipped with automatic hydrometers and rain gauges, remote connected to the Nha Trang Regional Centre.
Supply, installation and activation of a monitoring and early warning system for the area affected by landslides in the Municipality of Ottone. The importance of prevention and collaboration between organizations.
