Another important experiment for the protection of the marine environment is carried out these days by PPA SA within the European Research Project SEE MARINER. The experiment identifying oil spots in the wider maritime port area in day and night conditions. For this project the Department of the Container Terminal of PPA SA, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Department of Water intake and Electrical engineering in cooperation with HEC are collaborating.
The program has been developed for detecting oil in seawater through a thermal camera and the AIS system, so that after tracing it is possible to create conditions for discovery of the pollutant.
As is known PPA SA, since 2011, has been named ECOPORT by ESPO (European Sea Ports Association) through certification by Lloyd's and through daily measurements, interventions and programs, is continually improving its ecological interventions to retain its title of ECOPORT active.
