Novacavi reports development and supply of a new custom cable for monitoring bradyseism phenomenon in Pozzuoli Gulf, near Naples, Italy.
That area has been characterized by ground uplift and lowering phenomena of varying extent and, therefore, monitoring is a strategic measure for security, the company explained.
A new technique developed by a team of researchers from the Vesuvius Observatory of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology required a special cable from conception to completion.
Novacavi has designed and manufactured a resilient data, signal and power armoured underwater cable connecting sea bottom with 3 surface buoys equipped with sensors.
“We are proud that our cable, integrated with the latest methods of analysis, may provide a useful tool to survey possible future volcanic crises in that area,” said the company.
