OSIL’s Oil in Water Monitoring Buoy is a cheap, quick and easy way to ensure constant and immediate data collection when other systems are out of action, or where an environmental situation requires monitoring.

The buoy is designed to alert users to unexpected rises in hydrocarbon levels, or changes in other water quality parameters. Its size and weight make it ideal for one person to handle in the field, and its single point mooring makes for easy deployment and recovery.

Manufactured from machined foam and finished with a durable rubberised coating, the Oil in Water Monitoring Buoy is built with a central structure designed to safely accomodate a submersible hydrocarbon sensor integrated into a multiparameter sonde, while providing protection from collision damage.

Designed for deployments of up to 24 months, the Oil in Water Monitoring Buoy carries two 5W solar panels with battery back up, and a GPRS enabled data logger. Weighing 25 kg and having a total length of 2.0 m, this buoy is easy for just one person to handle and deploy.
