The Environment Agency (EA) has awarded a multi-year contract worth up to £2M to Meteor Communications for the supply of up to 800 remote camera systems. The cameras will build on an existing network of over 450 Meteor cameras that have been installed across the country over the last 4 years, monitoring critical flood infrastructure including grilles, screens, channels, culverts and automated remote structures. The new cameras are a valuable addition to the EA’s network of flood defences which better protect thousands of homes and businesses from flooding all year round.

Meteor have recently completed the installation of a MCE-MRC camera network at the Environment Agency’s Flood Alleviation scheme at Clay’s Lake. Six cameras monitor the scheme’s critical infrastructure, returning high quality images in real time. The cameras provide verification that the remote infrastructure is operating correctly, with Flood Defence Officers able to view the images via Meteor’s secure web application or via the Agency’s operational systems, into which the cameras are fully integrated.
Meteor are delighted to welcome Chris Kaye to the team as Business Development Manager for the Drainage Authority Sector. This is a new post created specifically to handle the growing demand from Drainage Boards, Local Authorities and Utilities all requiring visibility of remote infrastructure such as flood channels, trash screens, storm culverts, pump stations, weir gates and sluices.
Chris brings over 20 years of experience supplying water boards, water companies and industry with monitoring equipment, and has a keen understanding of the applications for which the equipment has been designed.
To support Meteor’s commitment to Sustainability and renewable energy the offices at Welwyn Garden City have recently been fitted with a 10.5kW Solar PV system. This should generate enough power to keep the offices and workshop powered for over 50% of the year, and will reduce Meteor’s CO2 emissions by over 6 tonnes per year. Thanks to the team at Solinvictus who have provided a superb installation.
Meteor will be live on Stand 10 at WWEM 2018 with the UK’s most extensive integrated, real time water quality network. On display will be the complete range of ESNET monitoring stations, systems and services which support some of the UK’s largest utilities, Government Agencies and Consultancies with collection of high resolution, high quality data from remote locations.
Thanks to the team at Atkins for the opportunity to share a stand at the Water Summit held at Moreton-in-March this week and demonstrate the work in progress on the Evenlode Catchment. Led by The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) and attended by senior figures from across the sphere of catchment management, including major water utilities and HRH The Prince of Wales the event was to announce that over 50 high profile organisations have signed up to the Catchment Management Declaration. This is a commitment to protect and improve river catchments across the UK and is a significant step in raising Water Quality at an integrated, catchment level.
