Pipeline’s leakage detection

pipelines

(by Enrico Rocchetti)

Nowadays Oil&Gas industry is one of the biggest market in terms of economical, social and environmental aspects.
Oil exploration and production areas are often contaminated by big petrol treatment plants and local people is always against these kind of activities, due to environmental pollution problems.
For example, Nigeria is crossed by thousand kilometers of pipelines for the oil transportation to be treated or distribuited in other places. Every day there are local village’s people that usually try to make holes in those pipelines in order to take out the oil and sell it illegaly.
So the monitoring and leakage detection of long pipelines is a crucial aspect to guarantee reliability and robustness of a big Oil transport network.
Loccioni has developed in partnership with an important Oil&Gas company a new solution that can be installed in that areas. Placing those systems in strategic places (usually at the beginning and at the end of the pipelines), it’s possible to process acquired data, for the detection of possible leakages along the pipelines.
Again, Loccioni’s core competence of “meausurement” has solved a big environmental problem in the Oil&Gas market.

Loccioni@Smart Energy Expo

Smart energy expo

On Friday, 10th of October Loccioni Group will present its Microgrid in one of the conferences organized by Smart Energy Expo in Verona, the international exhibition that promotes new solutions, products and technologies for energy efficiency.

Smart Energy Expo deals with energy efficiency from two points of view:

  • reduce wasted energy in processes and final goods
  • produce more distributed energy, focusing on resources that are economically efficient and environmentally friendly.
We will wait for you at our presentation!

The Club of Rome half century after “The limits to growth” and its consequences on today’s world.

(by Ugo Bardi)

Ugo Bardi

We all remember the well known study “The limits to growth” published in 1972 by The Club of Rome. Its memory is often misrepresented from the passing of time and from the many legends that have been built upon its results. Thus, we remember – or we believe we remember – that “The limits to growth” made “wrong forecasts” by saying that we should  have finished this or that resource (oil, gas, copper or whatever) already a long time ago. This is not what happened, of course. But the story was different.

Development possibilites for electric vehicles market

One of the aims of Europe2020 is the 20% CO2 emissions reduction by 2020. Nevertheless, according to forecasts the total amount of cars worldwide should duplicate by 2030 (moving from 800 million to 1,6 billion vehicles); thus, it is necessary to reduce traditional vehicles (accountable for 15% of polluting emissions in Europe) and promote a sustainable mobility.

Electric vehicles salesThe production of electric vehicles in Europe started in 2010: since then, sales have increased year by year and they got to 50.000 vehicles in 2013. This market is so young that it is difficult to make precise forecasts on future developments; anyway, if the growth will continue with the same trends it had until now, it is possible to say that it is likely that sales will get to 100.000 vehicles in 2015, 500.000 in 2020 and more than one million in 2025.

Microgrid, the energy future

The microgrid is a system of connected electricity consumptions that manages the energy needs of all its components in order to reach the following objectives:

Microgrid Loccioni
  • energy costs optimization by maximizing the use of locally produced power through the management of energy flows;
  • power quality and reliability improvement through the reduction in the number and duration of power outages;
  • reduction of CO2 emission.

Is it really possible to reach these goals? The answer is yes.
The Energy Management System (EMS) makes it possible to enhance remote data monitoring, advanced building management, energy flows optimization and demand response programs.
