Dinnteco monitors sites protected with the DDCE remotely.
All monitoring is carried out in areas of high probability or density of thunderstorms. All facilities have had serious incidents or direct lightning strikes in the past.
We do not use in-house methods such as lightning counters or storm warning systems, but instead hire the services of Meteorage, a leading company in the sector due to its methodology, which provides results with the lowest range of error.
The PIC DE GOMÀ tower is in Ordino in the western Pyrenees and belongs to Andorra Telecom.
The collected data demonstrates the effectiveness of the DDCE and how it compensates for the electric field of its surroundings, thus preventing the formation of an ascending streamer.
The risk of lightning increases as the storm moves away from the point where the DDCE is located, since the electric field increases as we move away from the DDCE.
The DDCE only affects its immediate surroundings. It does not act in the cloud or affect the number of storms or their weather.
