Continuous Dissolved Gas Monitoring

Share This Post

At Ambisense our mission is to use technology to solve complex environmental problems. This mission is enabled by the uptick in the development of novel, field-deployable sensor technologies made available to our customers on our award-winning software platform. 

Our GasfluX & MultifluX platforms are designed to enable real-time ground-gas risk assessment, analytics and quantification. To improve the quality of these risk assessments Ambisense agreed an exclusive UK distribution deal with Pro-Oceanus for the commercialisation of their Solu-Blu™ range of dissolved gas sensors, measuring Dissolved Methane, Carbon Dioxide & Total Dissolved Gas Pressure. The Solu-Blu™ sensors are solar powered, can be installed in a standard 50mm well and can be fully integrated into the GasfluX or MultifluX platform enabling real-time monitoring of both bulk and dissolved gases.

Commenting on the distribution deal Ambisense CEO said, ‘continuous monitoring of dissolved gases is a huge innovation in the contaminated land, waste & O&G markets. As such we are proud to partner with Pro-Oceanus to bring this technology to the UK market’.

Commenting on the agreement, Pro-Oceanus President said ‘this new partnership will help to further develop Pro-Oceanus’ expansion into land-based markets for our dissolved gas sensors. We are excited to partner with Ambisense and their talented team to bring dissolved gas monitoring to these new markets’

Steve specialises in the investigation, assessment and mitigation of ground gas and hydrocarbon vapours and is an Accredited Risk Assessor (ASoBRA) for permanent gases and vapour intrusion (he also acts as a scrutineer for the scheme) . He has written several key technical papers on this subject and has contributed to recent CIRIA, British Standards and Chartered Institute of Environmental Health guidance on ground gas assessment and mitigation. He was a member of the drafting committee for BS8567, Guidance on sampling of ground gas and the 2015 update of BS8485 on gas protection design (with 2019 amendment). He advises local authorities in the UK on planning, Part IIA and other issues relating to ground and landfill gas. He has completed several Part IIa risk assessments in relation to the risk of gas migration from landfill sites towards existing buildings, including options appraisals and mitigation design. He has designed numerous vent trench and barrier systems to prevent ground gas migration. He has recently completed work into the effects of flooding on landfill gas risk and looking at landfill permit surrender guidance in the UK. Steve has acted as an expert witness in court cases involving landfill or ground gas migration in the UK and Australia and for a site in Bangladesh where a gas exploration well had blown out. He has been involved in the design of gas and VOC mitigation measures for sites around the world affected by gas from various sources including mine workings. This has included retrofit schemes for existing buildings affected by gas ingress. He also provides expert support on ground gas to several Licensed or Accredited Contaminated Sites Auditors in Australia.
