Monitoring of Beato Pellegrino Geriatric centre

| Name: Geotermico Padova | Location: Padova | Start of the monitoring: September 2017 | Client: Carron S.p.a. | Responsible for monitoring: University of Padova

Restoration works of the former Beato Pellegrino geriatric centre by University of Padova represents an important investment for the future of the university. The large construction site envisages the realization of a geothermal plant, whose efficiency will be carefully studied by the reference university sector. A total of 6 MUMS chains equipped with high resolution thermometers were installed, in order to monitor in real time the temperatures along the vertical in different positions of the plant. 

The site is instrumented with 6 Therm Array chains. 5 chains are 130 m long and the sixth one is 120 m long. Every chain is equipped with 14 thermometer sensors Therm Link HR at variable distances. Control unit queries nodes at defined time intervals and saves them into a SD card. Data are transmitted with UMTS connection to the elaboration centre, where an automatic software elaborates them. Results are available on a web platform in a few minutes.
