IoT Microturbine: enabling off-grid IoT applications and data-driven management of gas networks in Peru (AMT)

Our Microturbine for energy harvesting in gas pipelines (AMT) is an innovative self-powered gas management system that simultaneously enables continuous remote monitoring and efficient pressure management of gas networks through data-driven decisions. The core of the technology is a novel patented, highly miniaturised microturbine (coin-sized), designed to be introduced into gas distribution pipelines, taking advantage of any existing pressure drop in the system to generate electricity in off-grid contexts (e.g. remote areas). It harvests the available energy for free, with no emissions or burning of fuel.
Our patented Microturbine has been designed to self-sufficiently and reliably power monitoring and control apparatus that help detect and reduce leaks in gas pipes and ultimately assure gas pipeline infrastructure functionality.

The objective of this project is to validate the applicability and to assess the user’s interest developed for an Earth Observation based service, locally available, allowing to assess the burnt area extent and the vegetation recovering over these burnt areas.
