Innovative CSO Monitoring Solutions from EMS Ltd
12 July 2010, News release from Environmental Monitoring Solutions Limited
2010 sees big changes for Environmental Monitoring Solutions Ltd. Dr Peter Skipworth has joined the company as Development Director with particular responsibility for company growth and providing innovative client solutions to today's environmental monitoring challenges.
This includes the AMP5 spend of more than £1bn in order to limit pollution from combined sewer overflows and storm tanks. The need to capture the details of events at CSOs and around bathing water areas is therefore driving EMS's innovative solutions.
EMS are increasingly deploying systems which relay continuous receiving water quality data to the web, and enable the triggering of automatic samplers to capture the detail of events.
Sampling is triggered locally or via remote communication. With the addition of water quality sondes, flow and level monitoring equipment, monitors are triggered by parameters ranging from ammonia concentration to flow rate. Installations are re-programmed remotely and storm events are assessed remotely before decisions are made regarding sample analysis.
These solutions are eliminating the wasted costs of unnecessary site visits and standby and unnecessary analysis expenditure. They are addressing the Health and Safety issues of long hours and the frequency of crews, for example, entering manholes.
The solutions are increasing knowledge and visibility and are helping guarantee capture of the right data. In years to come this will allow timely public notices regarding water quality and when it is safe to swim.
EMS assembles high quality, mature technologies in their solutions; the novelty is often in the configuration but moreover in the benefits. Never before have End Users been as knowledgeable, vigilant, engaged and prolific. As an industry we must show improvement from investment. Control and continuous monitoring present this opportunity.
Pete's arrival at EMS was also accompanied by investment from South Yorkshire Investment Fund to underpin growth. As well as an increased range of products and client solutions, EMS's growth will include an expanded equipment hire range. EMS have moved to larger premises with purpose built facilities.
Peter says "We are in an increasingly environmentally aware world, and this gives significant potential for EMS. The skills and experience already at the company are second to none in this field. This, and the working relationships and reputation we already have within the sector mean we are well placed".
Steve Roberts, Managing Director, says "The expansion has been planned for some time and now that Pete is on board we are working towards our targeted diversity and growth, increasing the value we can provide to clients."
