Vaisala Launches Biogas Analyser (New Prod. & Tech.)
Vaisala
Date: 2019-04-26
Further to our Feb. 4th coverage, Finnish environmental and industrial measurement specialist Vaisala Oyi has launched the world's first 3-in-1 in-situ biogas analyser, the MGP261.

The MGP261 relies on CARBOCAP® technology for measuring methane, carbon dioxide and humidity into a single compact probe that is EX-certified for operation directly in corrosive, potentially explosive biogas streams.

The Vaisala CARBOCAP® sensor's electrically tuneable Fabry-Perot Interferometer (FPI) filter enables a reference measurement at a wavelength where no absorption occurs. When taking the reference measurement, the FPI filter is electrically adjusted to switch the bandpass band from the absorption wavelength to a non-absorption wavelength. With the MGP261, humidity and carbon dioxide are measured with the same optical filter, and a second optical channel measures methane.

Applications for the technology include anaerobic digestion and landfill gas monitoring, activated carbon filter monitoring in biogas treatment processes, and CHP engine feed gas monitoring.

Vaisala Introduces Biogas Measurement Instrument (New Prod & Tech)
Vaisala
Date: 2019-02-04
Finnish environmental and industrial measurement specialist Vaisala Oyi has introduced its MGP 261, the world's first in situ 3-in-1 biogas measurement instrument for measuring methane, carbon dioxide and humidity in demanding environments, according to the company.

The MGP261 multigas measurement instrument gives continuous readings of methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), and water vapour directly in the biogas process pipeline. The product is optimized for biogas production processes, such as anaerobic digestion (AD) of waste from agriculture, industries and municipalities, and the utilization of landfill gas (LFG). The MGP261 is based on Vaisala's patented CARBOCAP technology, the company says. The product will be available in Q2, 2019.

Reliable and accurate in-line monitoring enables optimization of the production process by reducing operating costs and improving the efficiency of a biogas plant. (Source: Vaisala, PR, Bioenergy, Feb., 2019) Contact: Vaisala, Sampsa Lahtinen, Exec. VP Industrial Measurements, www.vaisala.com

Vaisala Acquiring Wind LiDAR Specialist Leosphere SAS (M&A)
Vaisala Corp
Date: 2018-10-19
Finnish environmental and industrial measurement specialist Vaisala Corp reports it is acquiring French LiDAR manufacturer Leosphere SAS for €38 million ($44 million). The transaction is slated to close before the month end.

Leosphere SAS designs, develops, manufactures, sells and services remote-sensing tools for the wind energy, aviation, meteorology and air quality sectors. It offers both ground-based and turbine-mounted wind LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) systems.

Following the takeover, Leosphere's Windcube and Wind Iris LiDARs will be added to Vaisala's offerings including the Triton Wind Profiler, a SoDAR (Sonic Detection and Ranging) system that has already been deployed on almost 5,000 measurement campaigns worldwide.
