The One-year project includes the supply, installation and maintenance of telemetric rain gauge stations across Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura.
North-East India, 24/05/2022 – Ingen Technologies, a fully-owned subsidiary of Weather Risk Management Services (WRMS) collaborated with Regional Meteorological Centre, Guwahati, Assam, India, Meteorological Department (IMD), and the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), Government of India, and bagged the contract for procurement, installation, and maintenance of Automatic Rain Gauge Stations in the North East States of India. The Meteorological Department owns and operates a network of about 2000 AWS & ARG across the country. Under the project “Sustenance and Maintenance of Observational Network of AWS and ARG” it is proposed to augment the ARG station network in North East India (Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura). IMD proposes to install mobile telemetry (SIM GPRS transmission) based ARG stations for the North Eastern States of India.
Ingen Technologies Private Limited, a fully owned subsidiary of WRMS, manufactures, supplies, installs and operates advanced IoTs like Automatic Weather Stations (AWS), Automatic Rain Gauge Systems (ARG), Automatic Irrigation Systems, etc. The company has installed more than 40,000 + IoTs across the country and is working with many government organisations like Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre, Andhra Pradesh State Development Planning Society, and more. Ingen has a team of 500+ multi-disciplinary experts across Agricultural Science, Data Science, Meteorology, Actuarial Science and Information Technology.
Ingen Technologies will be fully responsible for executing the project by taking up the charge of supply, installation, integration and commissioning of all ARG systems and required accessories such as mast, fencing material, sensor mounting accessories, cables, connectors, enclosures, conduits, switches and transient protectors. Also, Ingen Technologies will take care of preventative maintenance as well as intercomparing the ARG data with travelling standards at ARG sites every year (January/ February month) at IMD calibration facilities, Pune.
On bagging this contract, Dr. Ashish Agarwal, Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer (CTO) commented, “We are enthralled with our association with the Regional Meteorological Centre, Guwahati, Assam. Having worked with many state governments till date, we are confident towards building better and sustainable solutions for North Eastern states of the country and beyond.” He further added, “Weather-related uncertainties can result in devastating socio-economic consequences for farmers. By deploying this niche of ours, we are confident that we will be able to help the Regional Meteorological Centre, Guwahati in detecting weather-related risks in time to avoid disasters. WRMS, fully-owned subsidiary, Ingen Technologies is already a key player in the weather IoT space, and this project is going to be a major leap in our next phase of growth and will definitely help us expand our solution across India and the world.”
