Alarm and monitoring systems for natural hazards
We completed more than 190 projects and have currently more than 70 systems up and running, many of them in high mountain environments. Our systems are permanently connected to our servers. We monitor their proper operation and provide you with the current measurement data on our internet portal. Traffic lights, alarm sirens etc. can alert individuals in endangered areas and automatically close roads or railway lines.
Geopraevent is an independent provider and collaborates with a wide range of geology and engineering companies. It is owned by the Geopraevent management and by Geotest AG.
Why electronic alarm and monitoring systems?
Rock falls, landslides, debris flows, floods, avalanches and glacial lakes threaten roads, inhabited areas or regions frequented by tourists. In such situations, electronic monitoring systems can often complement or even replace structural measures – usually at a lower cost and certainly with a weaker impact on the alpine scenery. In addition, they are installed fast, are flexible in their use and adjustable at any time.
Our customer include federal and local authorities, railways or private infrastructure operators such as hydroelectric power plants. Learn more about our customer projects.
