INDUSTRY: SECURITY AND ORGANIZATION
Industrial sites must anticipate and be ready for a range of disasters, including major fires, explosions, terrorist attacks or accidental release of toxic gases. Sensitive sites, CBRN environments (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear) or energy transport infrastructures (oil and gas pipelines) must assess their vulnerability to these threats and step up preventive measures. Detailed analysis, based on combined use of big data and imagery from Earth observing satellites or aerial platforms collected over these areas, helps industry to manage action and safety plans via alerting mechanisms and status dashboards. These advanced services allow insurers and reinsurers to adapt their models and initiate a pro-active approach to risk management.
ENVIRONMENT: PREVENTION AND MANAGEMENT
Monitoring confirms that earthquakes, floods and extreme weather events (storms, tornadoes, etc.) have become more frequent over the past few decades. Whatever the cause, although climate change is likely largely to blame, the economic impact of such events is now a factor to be reckoned with alongside industrial security issues. EarthLab Luxembourg’s services enable effective mapping of high-risk areas and rapid post-disaster analysis of impacted or potentially impacted areas, as well as optimal management of rescue services, evacuation of populated areas and damage estimation, which are key issues for the insurance and reinsurance markets.
