Transcript of Met Ocean

AXYS Met Ocean Buoys
Renewable Energy
AXYS WatchKeeper buoy
is a polyethylene buoy designed for coastal deployments in water depths up to 500m.

is a unique aluminum environmental monitoring buoy designed for long-term deployments in extreme conditions.

Custom configurable with a wide range of sensors for monitoring meteorological, oceanographic and water quality parameters

Watertight central compartment houses the electronics payload, and there are two masts for mounting meteorological sensors, telemetry hardware, solar panels and obstruction lights

Uses a 1 Kw wind turbine as a primary power supply, with solar supplemented rechargeable batteries and a diesel generator available as back-up power sources

Real-time meteorological and oceanographic data is used to generate custom synoptic weather and sea-state forecasts to support safe and effective pilot and tanker operations.
NNMREC researchers are able to test wave energy conversion technologies in offshore locations without grid infrastucture.

Offshore Oil Field Development
A network of 12 AXYS 3 Metre buoys provide stakeholders with real-time meteorological and oceanographic data as part of Brazil's Programa Nacional de Boias (National Buoy Program).
3 AXYS WatchKeeper buoys, owned and operated by Universidade Federal do Rio Grande (FURG), provide the APO with a variety of metrics such as wind speed, air temperature, solar radiation, directional waves, current speed and water temperature, knowledge of which is needed for sports like beach volleyball, sailing, triathlon, cycling and marathon swimming.
Real-time data informs critical decisions affecting platform operations, safety & the environment.

Local meteorological data transmitted by an AXYS WatchKeeper buoy helps vessel operators make more informed decisions, such as whether to continue an approach to the Port or hold position until the weather improves.
