Premium class: Spain is building one of the largest spectroscopic monitoring networks
Spain is updating its national surveillance network by installing ENVINET probes to monitor Spanish air and soil in future, from the mainland to the islands in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
The Spanish Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) is committed to upgrading its monitoring network. Distributed all over the country, the previous local dose rate probes, 24 units in total, served their duty. They are to be replaced by modern, high-performance ENVINET stations, delivered through our local partner DILUS.
CSN is deploying both permanent SARA stations and mobile MIRA stations. The monitoring network is gradually being modernized until 2021. Overall, 185 SARA spectroscopic stations are being installed, along with 15 mobile MIRA stations to measure the local dose rate. CSN has opted to use ENVINET's NMC monitoring center solution to manage all the stations. NMC is operated on two systems in separate locations. The individual probes are fitted with two independent communication channels. Thus, even if one computer system or communication channel malfunctions, transmission of the current readings to CSN is guaranteed. In case of emergency, the integrated back-up battery ensures continuous data logging and transmission, even during power outages.
