Is there any relation between pollution, climate change and a possible increase in thunderstorms?    

Is there any relation between pollution, climate change and a possible increase in thunderstorms?

20/09/2018

Nowadays, around 25 million lightning strikes impact the earth every year. In relation to the frequency of the lightning strikes, some research studies point out that the heat and a rise in temperature are related to cloud electrification. In fact, it is known that during the summer, thunderstorms are more frequent.

This reasoning could make us think that if the climate change produces a global rise in temperatures, an increase in lightning events could be produced.

Lightning rod maintenance: How and when it should be done?

06/09/2018

Lightning rods must undergo periodic inspections and maintenance, as indicated by national and international regulations (UNE21186, NF-C 17 102, IEC EN 62305). These periodical lightning rod inspections enable to detect deviations from reference standards or anomalies in the installation caused by environmental conditions, such as corrosion, incorrect handling, or other circumstances, such as expansions of the building where the lightning rod is located.

Losses and insured costs produced by lightning

09/08/2018

Lightning causes significant damages and losses all around the world, especially in those areas with high frequency of thunderstorms or during the summer months. It is estimated that there are about 2,000 active storms every day and that approximately 40 lightning bolts per second on Earth, which means about 1200 million strikes per year. Some researches suggests that there could be an increase in electrical storms due to climate change and pollution.

33 per cent of accidents in storage tanks in the Oil & Gas sector could be avoided

12/07/2018

It is estimated that approximately six million people work in the Oil & Gas sector. In many cases, these jobs are situated in isolated areas far from the cities, since these are activities done with hazardous materials such as flammable gases or flammable liquids in large quantities.
