Data buoy manufacturers Ocean Scientific International Ltd (OSIL) have recently supplied 8 buoy platforms to Jan De Nul Group.

The robust 1.2m buoys will be used on different dredging or renewables projects as platforms for environmental monitoring.

Each buoy incorporates a variety of sensors from different manufacturers, including AML Oceanographic, Campbell Scientific and Nortek, with specialist seabed frames for current monitoring work.

Data from the buoy systems are emailed to Jan De Nul project workers, and the low power telemetry solution ensures a constant flow of data from the sensors while allowing remote control of measurement interval and data reporting schedules.

The 1.2m buoys are robust and stable platforms for use in mixed coastal environments and can be moored in a variety of water depths ranging from 3m to 50m.

The hull and top frame are manufactured from rotationally moulded polyethylene, with the hull being filled for added security.

The top frame accommodates 4 solar panels, a built in radar reflector and a St Andrews Cross that can fit a wide range of antennae, light and met sensor combinations to suit requirements.
