Challenges in Implementing Monitoring and Observation Projects

Due to the urgent needs from the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Tra Vinh province, the installation and configuration team has to race against time while ensuring that the project is completed in accordance with the set targets and standards when put into use.

This can be said to be the only challenge in this project. In addition, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Tra Vinh province has also provided enthusiastic support for resources and personnel to help the project complete on schedule.

Monitoring solution for surface water, groundwater, and ambient air

Để quản lý và giám sát dữ liệu quan trắc môi trường trên địa bàn tỉnh. Sở TNMT Trà Vinh đã triển khai phần mềm quản lý dữ liệu quan trắc iLotusLand. Phần mềm đáp ứng nhu cầu giám sát tập trung và công khai số liệu của Sở TNMT tỉnh Trà Vinh đề ra, iLotusLand đã đưa ra bộ giải pháp iLotusLand dành cho môi trường nước mặt, nước biển, không khí xung quanh và màn hình LED hiển thị các thông số đo được. Bộ giải pháp này được thiết kế để phục vụ cho nhu cầu giám sát trực tuyến, thu thập dữ liệu và hiển thị báo cáo, cụ thể như sau:

  • Integration of all data, including manually entered data, real-time data collected from sensors, and image data from cameras.
  • The collected data is displayed on the software in the form of separate tables or charts for each emission unit parameter over the average time.
  • Account notification features help bridge the physical distance, all issues are quickly notified through images and sounds.
  • Public data sharing through LED screens: displaying water quality parameters in the area of factories.
LED display boards are used to publicly disseminate environmental data to the residents of Tra Vinh.

Benefits of monitoring management software

Thông qua triển khai dự án iLotusLand for LED từ dữ liệu của Phần mềm quản lý quan trắc iLotusLand, tỉnh Trà Vinh đã đạt được những lợi ích trước mắt như sau:

  • Time and manpower saving in surface and seawater monitoring: Operations and leadership can quickly grasp the actual situation to address timely changes in indices, contributing to the improvement and optimization of the environmental monitoring network in Trà Vinh province.
  • The LED project has helped residents and businesses understand the water and air quality situation in Tra Vinh province, contributing to transparent environmental data
  • Monitoring activities are not interrupted with both web and mobile platforms, tracking data anytime, anywhere. Business units with excess emissions will be correspondingly fined, thereby gradually reducing violations affecting the environment
  • In addition to automatic environmental data monitoring solutions in real-time, iLotusLand also comes with warning features, supporting environmental safety personnel to proactively respond to situations and incidents. This is particularly significant in improving the quality of wastewater discharge, helping businesses in environmental protection

The Center for Land and Industrial Development is an organization established to manage and develop land and industrial estates in a specific region. They are responsible for attracting investments, land management, providing infrastructure, and promoting economic development in that area. Importantly, these centers have close relationships with the environment, such as local environmental management and protection, water and waste treatment, promoting green technology, and enhancing public awareness. In Thang Binh district, industrial zones often generate a significant amount of wastewater and waste, so it is necessary to develop a monitoring system for wastewater and waste treatment to ensure that they do not harm the environment.

iLotusLand Platform Monitors 372 Stations in Collaboration with Binh Duong Authority Case Study – Government Ground Water - Waste Water- CEMS - Surface Water - Hydrometeorology ABOUT THE CLIENT Binh Duong province in southern Vietnam thrives as a bustling industrial hub, boasting over 30 industrial parks, possessing 12,670 hectares which has hundreds of factories in operation. This vibrant landscape hosts a diverse array of industries, including textiles, electronics, wood processing, and food manufacturing,... which leads it to a top contributor to Vietnam's GDP. That being said, it also comes with more concerns in the mission of environmental protection. I. THE CHALLENGE With the rapid development in industrial operation and the fast growth of installation for monitoring stations, its number has reached 372 stations including Waste Water, CEMS, Ground Water, Surface Water, and Hydrometeorology for both industry discharge management and natural resource management purposes. Binh Duong authority found it extremely hard and time-consuming to manage them effectively because all the stations are decentralized and not connected. As a result, these monitoring tasks were being done mainly manually and the source of data was considered to be “untrusted”. II. THE SOLUTION Together with the release of data transmission regulations, iLotusLand offered to Binh Duong province the iLotusLand platform for Environment (On-Premise). It gives the management department of Binh Duong a great tool a complete the job for the following reasons. Firstly, it is installed in the authority’s server, ensuring its data is well-controlled. Secondly, the platform is scalable and can handle an unlimited number of stations well. Thirdly, it offers a great deal of insightful functionalities that helps the officers conveniently manage everything remotely. Application Ground Water Waste Water CEMS Surface Water Hydrometeorology Number of stations 214 110 42 4 2 Measured parameters Flow, Level, Electric Conductivity pH, COD, TSS, Flow, Temp, Color Flow, Temp, Pressure, O2, Dust, SO2, NOx, CO, Benzene,Toluene, Styrene TSS, pH, Nitrate, DO, EC, Level Humidity, Rain, Level, Air Temp, Water Temp Software model iLotusLand Platform for Environment (On-Premise) III. THE RESULT The introduction of the iLotusLand platform for Environment (On-Premise) marks a notable stride in environmental protection efforts in Binh Duong province. All 372 monitoring stations, whether industry-owned or authority-invested, are now interconnected and centrally managed in the authority's control room. This enables officers to monitor and regulate industrial discharges remotely, facilitating more effective management. Moreover, the platform has become a revenue generator, yielding approximately 15 million USD in annual penalties from non-compliant industries. By promoting green growth and sustainability, it supports the development of all stakeholders involved. V. ILOTUSLAND INTRODUCTION iLotusLand is an environmental IoT company offering data-driven environmental monitoring solutions for better decision-making.
