Environmental Monitoring

Significant growth in renewable energy technologies has seen solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind turbines become a common feature of the UK landscape.

These sites can cover large geographical areas which can be at risk of vandalism and environmental damage.

Effective way to manage risk

Manned guarding can be used to secure these premises. However, it is not always the most practical solution. Remote CCTV monitoring provides an effective way to manage any threats, and the Corps Monitoring Centre (CMC) is able to provide a full range of environmental monitoring services.

We have built an enviable reputation for our ability to implement and maintain a remote monitoring service that meets the demanding requirements of solar PV and wind farms, as well as electricity power stations, gas plants, water treatment plants and other utilities.

We combine state-of-the-art technology and operational expertise and provide advanced monitoring of environmental factors such as light levels, power changes, river levels and tides, exhaust content, wind speeds, rain levels and other conditions.

We also provide Umbo, our specialist alarm filtering platform. Across the solar and renewable energy sectors, false CCTV alarms can be a major issue due to their remote locations. Solar farms often have sheep and other farm animals grazing below, in addition to being open to harsh weather conditions. This can sometimes lead to high false alarm rates. The Umbo platforms filters these false alarms out and only presents genuine alarms to our operators.

Our proactive approach enables customers to plan ahead and manage potential risks to their business, safe in the knowledge that they will have the fastest possible response in case of an unexpected event.
