Lëtzebuerg’s diversity

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a striking example of how diversity can be created in a country with a small surface area: three official languages, a cultural melting pot from every corner of the world, a strong economy, a rich and varied landscape – and an equally fascinating monitoring network.

Although its national nuclear power plant Remerschen was never built, Luxembourg is surrounded by a number of nuclear facilities, some in the immediate vicinity. Accordingly, the Department of Radiation Protection, Division de la Radioprotection of the National Health Directorate Direction de la Santé operates one of the world's densest radiation monitoring systems with over 20 mainly spectroscopic SARA probes, monitoring both the air and bodies of water. Moreover, several aerosol monitors and a redundant NMC installation in the monitoring center guarantee 24/7 availability – nothing escapes this measuring network.

On top of which, a measurement vehicle equipped with four MIRA ODL probes and a MONA mobile gamma-spectroscopic measuring system ensure that, in an emergency, the monitoring network can be rapidly densified and adapted to the specific radiological conditions. This also facilitates mobile controls and monitoring for large events.

Luxembourg Airport is a busy hub with intensive passenger and freight traffic. Needless to say, fail-safe operations and continuous data acquisition are crucial here. NMC is therefore deployed as a back-up meteorological system, providing up-to-the-minute weather data.

Mobile and stationary probes; radiation, air and weather data; proprietary and third-party products – NMC and ENVINET products can be integrated seamlessly into Luxembourg's diversity. But we are nowhere near the end of the story.
