An OSIL engineer is currently on-site in Belgium to recommission 4 buoys for existing marine engineering clients. The buoys will be deployed on 2 separate global projects with a focus on dredge monitoring.
The first project, based in Qatar, will utilise 3 of the buoys. 2 buoys are set up to monitor water quality parameters including turbidity with the remaining buoy reporting current and wave readings.
The second project is located in the Netherlands, and the buoy to be installed is equipped with both a multi parameter sonde and a Nortek AWAC for currents and waves.
The versatile buoy systems have been in storage for several months following the successful completion of their last projects.
