National Hydrometeorological Monitoring Network Portugal


Irrigation of agricultural land is essential in Portugal. A large number of reservoirs create the conditions for this. One of the tasks of the Portuguese environmental agency APA is to record the overall view of all water resources in Portugal. A large number of measuring points are required for this purpose.

  • meteorological measuring points, especially for the recording of precipitation
  • Level measuring stations for level measurement in reservoirs and rivers
  • Water quality monitoring sites

Technical solution

Logotronic has been supporting APA for many years together with an excellent local representative. A high number of measuring points in a wide variety of configurations were installed. Data transmission takes place via the mobile network. The stations operate with solar power supply.
