Installation of Telegrafia’s tsunami siren in the Pacific island of Maiao
As stated in the last UN published Asia Pacific Disaster Report of the year 2015 The Disasters without Borders, “Asia and the Pacific is the world’s most disaster-prone region − exposed to earthquakes, floods, droughts and typhoons, and many other powerfully destructive natural phenomena“. The report indicates several threats, and tsunami is one of them. Preventive measures for mitigating the risk of disastrous consequences have been transformed into adequate actions a long time ago.
Maiao is a volcanic island in the archipelago of the Society Islands, located in the South Pacific Ocean and administratively constituting a part of French Polynesia. The island has an area of 9 square kilometres and a population of 280 permanent residents (2002). In June 2016, a new tsunami siren from the 600 W Pavian line was successfully installed on the island within the scope of the larger ongoing project: The Tsunami Early Warning System in Different Pacific Areas. In the last thirteen years, the size of the whole project has grown steadily, with a total of 200 installed Pavian tsunami sirens.
All products are developed and manufactured in the company headquarters in Slovakia, which makes it possible to fully supervise the entire process of developing, manufacturing and delivering tsunami sirens to customers by the company’s trained staff. Bearing in mind that customers intend to purchase reliable electronic sirens to faultlessly sound warnings in emergency situations, it is of crucial importance that they are mounted easily and quickly, and with the intended professional result. The Pavian tsunami sirens are cleverly designed to be easily and quickly mountable by customers on their sites all over the world.
