Coastal Series Monitoring Buoy

The Aquaominx COASTAL series offers multiple monitoring buoy solutions ready for deployment in three specialised versions to suit the range of coastal applications.

These are:

  • COASTAL-WQ (Water Quality) – Laboratory grade water quality monitoring with bio-fouling protection
  • COASTAL-HM (Hydrographic-Meteorology) – Understanding of the dynamic coastal conditions particularly for navigation assistance or risk assessment
  • COASTAL-OS (Oil Slick) – Early detection of hazardous hydrocarbons

The COASTAL series is proven in both warm tropical waters and winter freezing conditions.
