This webinar will focus on very high resolution satellite information supporting the monitoring of dredging activities for the installation of offshore infrastructure.
Speaker of the webinar is Sergio Samarelli, Chief Technology Officer and Head of Business-to-Business SBU of Planetek Italia.
Planetek Italia has developed standardized(*) geospatial products, based on remotely sensed data, such as Worldview-2 and Worldview-3, designed in particular to support dredging operations. Currently different organizations worldwide have already adopted these solutions. In this webinar, we will present an overview of how these geospatial products can help Engineering and Oil & Gas Companies having full visibility on the impact of dredging operations.

Dredging is a worldwide activity fueled by global trade, coastal defense, urban development, Energy and Tourism requirements. Primarily project driven, the Industry is experiencing significant growth generating associated revenues in 2013 of approximately €11.68 Bln (IADC). With this increased level of activity, comes a greater understanding on the corporate social responsibility associated with dredging including sustainability, environmental impact and safety. Very high resolution satellite information can effectively support the monitoring of some of these core issues during dredging activities for the installation of offshore infrastructure.
The use of traditional monitoring techniques (sampling at sea, measures, laboratory analysis) is certainly effective, but presents logistical and operational obstacles and long processing times, often incompatible with the need to obtain information in real-time. Furthermore, field observations and measurements, although frequent, are not able to provide a complete and exhaustive spatial answer to describe all the issues that could occur.
The proposed solution integrates traditional methods with daily collections of high-resolution satellite images over the area of interest. All the monitoring phases are accurately planned: the programming of the satellite acquisitions, the data collection, the ingestion and processing. Within a few hours, this method provides accurate and validated information, useful for measuring the quantitative and spatial information required in the dispersion of sediments during dredging operations.
