BERTIN Technologies, a subsidiary of CNIM Group, has been chosen by the authorities of Switzerland and by the European Commission – on behalf of Armenia – to provide tailored radiation monitoring systems.
These new contracts reassert Bertin’s strong expertise in Environmental Radiation Monitoring Systems, ERMS, and demonstrate its flexibility to meet specific requirements.
The Swiss authorities chose Bertin for the renewal of their MADUK1 and NADAM2 radiation monitoring networks. Bertin Technologies also won a tender for ANRA (Armenian Nuclear Regulatory Authority), within the framework of a contract funded by the European Union, to provide equipment and services in order to improve radiation monitoring near and around the Metsamor nuclear power plant3 in Armenia.
Bertin’s solutions perform the surveillance of radioactivity in air, soil and water around nuclear facilities or for nationwide monitoring purposes to help ensuring human safety.
They include a broad range of sensors, including gamma dose measurements, air monitoring, and spectroscopic analysis for radionuclide identification. Collected data is transmitted through secured and emergency proof channels including radio, 4G or satellite. A central data management system allows managing, analyzing and visualizing the situation in real time.
Backed by the in-depth know-how of Saphymo (acquired in 2015), Bertin has developed and optimized cutting-edge instrumentation equipment for the detection and monitoring of ionizing radiation, which comply with the strictest international requirements.
These contracts showcase the expertise of Bertin’s teams in the field of radiological monitoring
