GACS bagged a prestigious order from Saudi Electric Company Organization (SECO) to connect multiple stacks, ambient stations and ETP stations and monitor it online.

Environmental Standards in Saudi Arabia

The Environmental Protection Standards in Saudi Arabia are implemented by ‘Presidency of Meteorology and Environment (PME)’ since 1982. As per the guidelines of PME, SECO came up with the tender for online data monitoring and connecting Ambient stations and Stacks in each plant. In the next phase ETP stations will be connected and data will be collected online.

Business Requirements

  • To install and operate a server at each plant connecting to multiple stacks and ambient stations which will be the aggregator for  pollution data
  • To collect the data in real time
  • To store and archive all data for analysis and reporting
  • To generate relevant alarms/ alerts and warnings based on real time data
  • To provide additional functionality for authorized users for data management and analysis as well as for generating reports
  • Report generation and distribution as per configuration

Currently the installation is complete for 6 sites. The good part about EnviroConnect is all the configuration and installation can be done remotely. Looking at the urgency in installation, all the required hardware was shipped and installed by GACS engineers. Our engineer completed installation of one site remotely and for another site visit and training purpose. Our engineer traveled to UAE and completed the installation.
