Case Studies

Protecting and conserving the beluga whale habitat in Alaska with Libelium's flexible sensor platform.

Beluga whales are considered critically endangered with a population estimated around 150,000 worldwide. In 2017, a natural gas leak was detected approximately 6 kilometers offshore in the Cook Inlet near Nikiski (Alaska). Alaskan authorities responded with detailed and challenging monitoring requirements due to the area being a critical habitat for endangered beluga whales. Libelium's partner company Aridea Solutions designed a solution to monitor the leak based in a buoy equipped with Libelium's wireless sensor platform to monitor air and water near the leak affecting the Beluga whales and other aquatic mammals. This project consisted of monitoring methane, oxygen and CO2 levels above the surface of the water. While simultaneously monitoring dissolved methane, dissolved O2 and several other parameters directly beneath the surface of the water.

Early flood detection and warning system in Argentina developed with Libelium sensors technology.

Libelium and the Argentinian company Rack2 have developed a permanent flood monitoring system based on IoT technology in La Emilia, a small village in the North of Buenos Aires. Its location next to a river has been subject to several flood alerts throughout its history. With the last flood in 2017, a 75% of the population were forced to evacuate, one person died and more than 3,000 people were moved to several evacuation centers. The final objective of the authorities was to have a permanent water monitoring system, not only for risk alerts but also to produce a satisfactory water flow, to control and record its behavior. Rack2, Libelium’s distributor in Argentina, has implemented an early flood detection and warning system using Libelium technology, a reliable and stable structure in terms of communications and accuracy..

Controlling fish farms water quality with smart sensors in Iran.

Afarinesh Samaneh Mehr Engineering Co. (ASM), Libelium official distributor in Iran has developed a Smart Water sensor network to measure the water quality parameters of the fish farms in the North of the country. The main objective of this project was to control water quality in order to increase quality and productivity as well as to reduce costs and increase profits. Having information about water quality parameters in fish breeding ponds offers the fish farmers the possibility to manage their installations in an improved and more effective way, accelerating their inner processes

Controlling quality of irrigation water with IoT to improve crops production.

The irrigation water quality, as well as the correct management of the water resources, is essential for the productivity and efficiency of the crops. Controlling and analyzing water before irrigating is crucial and its quality may vary significantly depending on the time of year. So frequent measurements are recommended. The Spanish company GMV has developed a water quality monitoring system based in Libelium technology. The nodes were installed at the "El Portal" irrigation dam, located on the Guadalete river where it passes through Jerez de la Frontera (Spain).

Early warning system to prevent floods and allow disaster management in Colombian rivers.

On May 18th 2015, the Colombian village of Salgar was devastated by a landslide. The La Liboriana river flood caused 83 deaths and left devastation and destruction on the communities all over the area. After this event, the National Unit for Disaster Risk Management – Unidad Nacional para la Gestión de Riesgos de Desastres (UNGRD) in Spanish – designed a plan to monitor and compile information on the La Liboriana, La Clara and Barroso rivers to prevent tragedies like the Salgar landslide. Federmán Comunicaciones, a Colombian company with more than ten years of experience in telecommunications, was responsible for the installation of an early warning system in disaster management in the region based on Libelium technology.
