Automatic System of Hydrological Information
This is a real-time information system, based on the capture, transmission and processing of values adopted by the hydrometeorological and hydraulic variables obtained at different control points distributed in strategic areas of the hydrological catchment area.
These control points generally consist of: flow rates in rivers, reservoirs, control points in bridges, supply connections, flow rates in channels, rain gauges or snow gauges, and they are connected via satellite with the Cuenca Control Centre (CCC) and Data Presentation Centres.
OFITECO has extensive experience in the design, execution and control of projects, operation, maintenance and upkeep of these systems, and is able to offer a comprehensive solution, which includes all the implementation phases. In addition, OFITECO is currently working on the design and implementation of a management and analysis system of hydrologic information from ROEA (Official Network of Gauging Stations) in eight Spanish Catchment Areas.
Non-automatic control networks
Their objective is the same as the automatic ones, but their differences lie in their equipment, which consists of a limnimeter (measurement of the height), which can be supplemented by a conventional graphic water-level recorder, which means that the data is recorded twice, thus making the measurement more accurate.
