Increased shipping worldwide, combined with new port developments and expansion of current facilities (including larger and deeper access channels, turning basins and appropriate water depths) to accommodate increased traffic, has lead to an increase in global dredging, with many of these dredged sites later requiring maintenance dredging to maintain safe operational water depths for navigation, and to facilitate continued access to berths, docks, wharves and jetties.
As a result OSIL has developed cutting edge dredge monitoring systems, which are able to feed into these projects in such a way as to optimise vessel movements in order to comply with environmental legislations.
Dredging projects can be extensive, and expensive, with regular, ongoing, long-term monitoring requirements for water quality and other parameters, OSIL are able to feed into these projects in such a way as to optimise vessel movements in order to comply with environmental legislation.
OSIL offers full turnkey dredge monitoring packages with leading innovations, which result in higher quality data arriving at operators desktops in near real time
OSIL can provide a range of fully integrated fixed mooring, re-positionable, or mooring-free platforms, capable of monitoring turbidity, current flow, etc., to provide accurate discharge and dredge spoil data to clients in real-time.
A range of sampling equipment (e.g. corers, grabs) is also available from OSIL, together with analytical services for sediment and water quality, and field servicing, to provide turn-key field systems.
