Supply, installation & startup of multi-purpose systems of stations located in the current mareographic network of Venezuela Geographic Institute Simón Bolivar (IGVSB).
Consolidation and expansion of an environmental monitoring system for Venezuela’s coastal areas through the acquisition, installation and implementation of seven (7) multi-purpose measurement stations.
The multipurpose stations are formed each with the following equipment: 1 tide gauge, 1 automatic weather station (Cumana, Puerto de Hierro), 1 Acoustic Doppler profiler 1 multiparameter water quality probe, 1 datalogger.
Communications via satellite GOES for the transmission and data management to a situation room is also included within the scope of the contract.
Meteorological Network Project - INAMEH (Venezuela)
The team of BFOR consultants headed by Luis Delgado led to the satisfaction of the National Institute of Hydrology and Meteorology (INAMEH), to the Spanish consortium responsible for the Supply, Installation and Commissioning of 640 hydro-meteorological towers, located in remote places and across the national territory (radars, meteorological stations, flow meters, level sensors, satellite communications, situational room, technology platform, etc.).
The work done of coordination and support, range from the technical and financial management and project coordination, to the permission of access to military installations and from PDVSA, occupational safety and hygiene work, IT Outsourcing Services and also hiring local cooperatives to work for civil engineering, transport logistics and import of goods, among others.
The project executed for over five years by the Spanish consortium was led by a team of consultants from our firm and funded by the CAF Spanish abbreviation of (Confederation of Andean Foment).
Meteorological Tower Project - ENRESA (Spain).
This project involves the design of a meteorological tower that counts with 80 meters high on the future site of centralized temporary storage of nuclear waste in Villar de Cañas (basin).
Hydro meteorological and Limnology Network Project - CORPOELEC (Venezuela)
CORPOELEC The National Electricity Corporation has commissioned BFOR the Study of Hydro meteorological and Limnology Network Measurement associated with the hydroelectric generation.
CORPOELEC has installed about 20,000 MW hydroelectric capacity covering 75% of the demand of energy to the country. Among the dams managed stands out for its size Guri dam, with 135,000 hm3 of reservoir capacity and an area of 4,250 km2, also the Simon Bolivar Central with a capacity of 10,000 MW.
The improvement of the hydroelectric management requires the hydro-meteorological networks to provide quality data in real time. BFOR will make the diagnosis of the current networks, the proposal to expand them and the study of the resources needed for their operation and maintenance.
EFE Network Railroad Project (Chile)
Project for the improvement of the active and passive defense on the cross to level the road network and the railroad EFE network. (Chile, 2014),
Detail engineering for the automation of 35 PAN of which 12 are on open line, 8 are affected and the rest locked.
Characteristics of the project:
– Total length (Km): 500
Potable Water System Project (Panama).
Inspection and supervision of the rehabilitation and optimization of the pumping equipment for potable water systems and the supplies of tools to the electromechanical workshop.
The objective of the action is the improvement and adaptation of different electromechanical systems for the supply and delivery of potable water to several communities in the metropolitan area of Panama City.
Therefore, it acts on seven existing and in operation pumping stations, providing new pumps, motors and other components, all working together to optimize and improve the service to the communities, resulting in the most optimal possible power-performance relation.
Small hydroelectric power plants project of Vilcazán and Culqui (Peru)
The hydrological study and disaster risk assessment for small hydroelectric power plants project of Vilcazan and Culqui aims to:
– Prove the availability of water resources at acting points.
– Set the Plan of use and no affectation rights of water use by third parties.
– Set the Plan of use and no affectation rights of water use by third parties.

Center Project of Tunnel Control (Poland)
Center tunnel control and management of maintenance of the highway S-69, section: Bielsko-Biala-Zywiec-Zwardon (Poland).
The central management and control of the tunnels will provide over 24-hour monitoring of all highway and in particular the tunnels. The team of operators will need to see / control the operation of the highway by the management system designed to integrate all field signals of data, voice and images.
The highway S-69 runs on the south of Poland, linking the border with the D3 highway of the Slovak Republic. The section that will monitor the control center has 54 km in a number of sections, some in service and others under construction.
