The Applus+ K2 team in Colombia has launched an unprecedented system of environmental monitoring networks in the country for the environmental authority of the department of Boyacá. This environmental monitoring and assessment make it possible to measure and anticipate in a timely manner and in real-time the conditions of the Chicamocha River, the main fluvial corridor in the region.
The network has the capacity to measure the state of the rivers: measuring levels, flow, contamination, and physicochemical factors. The project serves as a major component in an early warning system that helps keep surrounding communities safe.
The project is made up of 15 modern hydrometeorological stations that automatically capture and transmit full information about each location.
The large volume of data is received, centralized, and organized through AmbiensQ Suite, an environmental and sustainability management platform; developed with the highest international standards, which integrates artificial intelligence and data science to generate comparative analyses, graphs, and reporting sheets. Simultaneously, the platform allows assigning alarms, of permissive limits, that notify unexpected changes in the stations, increasing the effectiveness in the control of risks that can be generated in the hydrographic account.
These solutions are the result of comprehensive consulting work by the Applus+ K2 multidisciplinary team. The experts carried out a ground analysis, optimization of the monitoring network, selection of the most appropriate technology; as well as the implementation and integration of the platform and its mobile application, achieving a project that benefits the communities, the industry, and the environment of the region.
