Flood-prevention sensors installed at Pudong airport

INTELLIGENT sensors have been installed across the Pudong International Airport to improve flood-prevention measures.

The airport in Shanghai is situated near the mouth of the Yangtze River, with a large offshore space for flight operations. As a result it is vulnerable to typhoons and storms, especially during the flood season.

The Smart Anti-flood System was unveiled over the weekend. It can measure the amount of rainwater and send alerts to the concerned department, which can then dispatch personnel and flood-prevention materials.

Five remote meteorological terminals have been built across the airport covering 60 square kilometers. The terminals can provide important weather information and send flood alerts in blue, yellow, orange and red codes. Electronic gauges have also been installed at the airport waterways, runways and key roads.
