Estonian company to provide satellite monitoring to a Spanish engineering corporation

The Estonian IT company, Datel, has signed a collaboration agreement with the Spanish multinational engineering corporation, Tecnatom, to provide technological solutions for satellite monitoring of strategic and critical infrastructures.

The agreement covers several development areas to provide solutions to different industrial markets, such as nuclear power plants, railway infrastructures and electricity transport and distribution, the companies announced in a statement.

“With this collaboration agreement, we will be jointly capable to provide our clients tailored solutions through the development of high added value technology,” Javier Guerra, the chief executive officer of Tecnatom, said.

Datel is offering a service that allows users to remotely monitor the shifts and subsidence of infrastructure – such and bridges, pipelines, ports, mines and large buildings – globally with a precision of up to one millimetre (0.04 inches) – thus helping prevent accidents.

Tecnatom is a Spanish company, based in Madrid, that provides services and products for several industrial sectors such as energy, aerospace, oil, gas and process industry.
