Water

Our solutions were created to assist environmental professionals to obtain and analyse quantitative information on the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of both groundwater and surface water.
The initial desk study indicates a likely list of contamination issues, and we provide a variety of solutions that can be tailored to the specific requirements of a project as it progresses through an environmental risk assessment.

Ambisense water solutions

At the early stages of the field investigation our solutions are commonly used to analyse standard parameters such as turbidity, salinity, pH, temperature and electrical conductivity, parameters that often act as a proxy for other contamination issues.

 

Linking this in-field instrumentation to our software Ambilytics, our clever system can swiftly identify patterns or anomalies, flagging them to the environmental professional who in turn can use this information to refine their strategy, helping them identify the root of the issue far more quickly and therefore more cost-effectively.

Field – generated data is transmitted 24/7 by telemetry to Ambilytics, analysed, compared to contextual data sources such as weather, modelled, and trends identified, all on a single platform and accessible when you need it.

 

This allows you continuous access to your data and rapid assessment against site criteria, permit conditions and trend analysis no matter where you are or when you need it.

Groundwater

 

Our solutions have been used to monitor and help generate in-depth insights of groundwater for a variety of industries. Understanding the natural, seasonal changes to aquifers and using that to form an accurate baseline can only be done through long term, continuous monitoring. However, we know it is important to also account for other influencing factors such as tides, and that is why our software gathers contextual data from a variety of sources and applies it to the field-generated data.

Surface Water

 

The quality of surface water plays a significant role in developing urban and suburban settlements and can be affected by a multitude of different contaminants. It affects all levels of the eco-system from the bottom up and it is paramount for the whole environment that our surface water is protected and any effluent or ingress of any pollutant that pushes the quality standards down to a level that can damage the environment is identified, assessed, and minimised.

Gas

We have a variety of technologies to assist you with your ground and landfill gas sampling and monitoring requirements. Our monitoring services satisfy a wide variety of regulatory requirements, and we use our wealth of expertise together with our clever platform, Ambilytics to help accelerate you through the regulatory process.

Ground & Landfill Gas Monitoring

 

Back in 2016, Ambisense launched Gasflux, the worlds first online continuous gas concentration and flow monitoring device. The patented technology is ideal for monitoring hazardous bulk and trace gases within borehole headspaces. The Gasflux is customizable and can monitor a wide range of gases (CH4, CO2, O2, TVOC, CO, H2S, and NH3) and environmental parameters (gas flow, atmospheric pressure & synchronous weather data).

Environmental Permitting & Landfill Surrender

 

For environmental permitting the ability to obtain real-time online data allows you to make swift decisions regarding your site operations and thus facilitating proactive management. For landfill permit surrender this means condensing monitoring and assessment periods from years to months so that the full value of your land can be unlocked swiftly.

Oil & Gas

 

Ambisense’s service solutions support the safe development of onshore oil & gas sites (conventional, shale gas, coal-bed methane, coal seam gas) by providing valuable environmental information via our Ambilytics platform from early baseline stages through E&P and post abandonment phases. Ambisense facilitate the ability to communicate quickly and clearly to the key stakeholders, essential for underpinning oil & gas Operator’s environmental credentials and maintaining their ‘social licence to operate’.

 

The downstream sector can benefit from Ambisense technology being used to help clean up and remediate former oil processing facilities.

Under-Floor Voids

 

Under-floor void monitoring is conducted when gas membranes have been accidentally omitted or the wrong specification membrane installed, or verification of membrane installation not been satisfactorily completed or there is a struggle to obtain regulatory sign-off for gas protection measures

 

The GasfluX system is ideal for this purpose as it combines both gas and meteorological data, essential for completing the gas risk assessment. Under-floor voids can be monitored in real-time via our Ambilytics platform, thus allowing you full control over when you have enough data to achieve swift sign-off. No waiting around, data when you need it.

Geotechnical

We monitor and analyse data for a wide range of geotechnical parameters including pore water pressure, groundwater levels, and settlement data. Visualised on Ambilytics, users can jump from basic time-series data by combining it with geological and environmental data, for instance, to give greater insights into the drivers of change. Field, lab and contextual data is formatted in Ambilytics in such a way that users can look at their data in ways that have never been able to do before, helping them understand the relationships and interrelationships, and confirm suspicions from a more scientific standpoint instead of spending weeks constructing excel graphs.

 

A powerful benefit of our platform is the increased team integration it gives; the same data can be used companywide by both environmental and geotechnical teams to make more well-informed and better, coordinated decisions.

Whether this is probes installed in boreholes headworks and linking to vibrating wire piezometers and extensometers, or strain gauges located on existing buildings, as long as the instrument is IoT connected your data can be viewed and analysed on Ambilytics.

 

If you have instrumentation that may have been installed a few years ago and that is not IoT capable we can suggest products that offer this connection, or for larger projects, our R&D team can develop a cost-effective solution.

Telemetry

The era of the data-logger is dead!

Continuous monitoring of gasair or water is an expensive undertaking and value can be maximized by transmitting data to the cloud to enable real-time processing, analysis, and visualization.

 

Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications increasingly require data be collected and transmitted by sensors in larger volumes, at more frequent intervals — or both but the exponential growth and now near ubiquity of IoT means that getting data from remote locations is no longer a function of how strong the mobile network in the area.

 

Ambisense has expertise in designing solutions harnessing a variety of technologies to move data seamlessly from the field to the cloud include a multitude of modems incorporating 2G  & 3G networks, LoRaWAN, Satellite & NB-IoT.
