costal-solutions-imageMarine ecosystems are one of the most fragile on the planet and can suffer environmental stresses when not effectively monitored and managed.

Monitoring in these marine environments presents specific challenges including protection from climatic extremes, the need for an autonomous power supply and back to base communication systems. We work together with our customers accessing their requirements and are able to provide them with long term reliable, accurate water quality data and hydrographic information.

Applications:

  • Coastal, estuary, river, lake & dam monitoring
  • Tidal monitoring (water depth, current velocity, wave height & direction)
  • Pollutant monitoring and alarming including oil spills and loading incidents
  • Early detection of algal blooms and fish kill events
  • Illegal or unscheduled ship ballast water discharges
  • Marine vessel position tracking systems
  • Port & harbour operations  (docking, dredging, loading & security)
  • Real time monitoring and alarms for weather & sea conditions

Features

  • Mooring system and anchor designed to suit local conditions
  • Self-contained solar panel and/or wind generator power supply
  • Physical and nutrient water quality monitoring systems
