Last year, 16 monitoring stations were installed in the city.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. A pilot project to create an automated online monitoring system for pollutants emissions into the atmosphere is envisaged not only at the company’s enterprises, but also in residential areas of Norilsk.

“In the spring we will understand how the system works, how accurately it reflects the readings. We compare the data with the readings of Roshydromet and mobile laboratories. The information will be displayed on the city portal, there will also be a mobile version – any resident of the country will be able to see the air quality in Norilsk”, said Stanislav Seleznev, the Nornickel vice president for ecology and industrial policy.

As for the industrial site, at the beginning of the year the company entered into an agreement with a Russian environmental operator to conduct a ‘pilot’ in Norilsk at the company’s facilities.

Previously, the equipment was already installed in Murmansk that predicts the plume of emissions – in online mode, the operator sees on the screen how the plume is moving, in which direction and from which pipe.

“Thus, we can predict when and whether there will be an impact on the city, which is located nearby. The system is good, we liked it, we will also install it at Norilsk enterprises and we plan to bring experience in sensors in the city to Monchegorsk”, Stanislav Seleznev added.
