Furthermore, Palas® and its sales partners have also succeeded in winning tenders in other European countries. For instance, the national environmental protection agency in Poland orders 16 Fidas® 200 fine dust monitors. These are installed in mobile measuring stations with which all administrative districts in Poland are equipped.
Following a tender in 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Ireland also decided for the Fidas® system. The successful bid was submitted jointly by the Palas® sales partners - EMS Environmental Monitoring Systems Ltd. (Dublin) and Air Monitors Ltd. (UK). The existing measurement network in Ireland is to be expanded with up to 44 Fidas® 200 measurement devices. This is a significant part of the new National Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Program (AAMP) from the British EPA.
In England too, Air Monitors Ltd. won the contract to supply fine dust monitors for the environmental agency measurement network. The Fidas® 200 fine dust monitor is certified by both TÜV and MCERTS. So all Fidas® 200 variants fulfill the requirements for certified, continuous monitoring of PM10 and PM2.5 in ambient air.
As Jim Mills, CEO of Air Monitors, explained, besides the performance advantages, the client was also convinced by the low operating costs and further advantages in practical operation.
