As part of S4CE, the very first test deployment of MIRICO multi beam open path gas sensor is taking place at the Hellisheiði CarbFix site in collaboration with Reykjavik Energy. The system designed for harsh field environment made it without issues to Hellisheiði, and after setting up and testing, the first CO2 signal was observed over a ~200 m open path range.

Over two weeks in September, extensive open path measurements are taking place to measure background concentrations of CO2 and the presence of CO2 emission hotspots on the site.
