Complete Oil Spill Monitoring solutions for vulnerable areas

Global environmental monitoring experts Ocean Scientific International Ltd (OSIL) produce oil spill monitoring solutions for remote areas for both aquatic and terrestrial applications where there is a concern over the potential for exposure to hydrocarbons.

OSIL build and install systems including oil spill monitoring buoys that are capable of detecting and monitoring surface sheens, oil in water monitoring buoys that can identify and quantify crude oil and refined fuels present in the water column using submersible sensors, and land-based non-contact oil spill detection systems. These structures can detect a variety of hydrocarbon based substances, and can be set up to ignore other materials that fluoresce in the same wavelength.

Real time data from these monitoring systems can be transmitted via GSM, UHF radio and satellite to a base station and can be displayed online using the OSIL data to web service, or can be integrated into the clients own computer systems, providing users with a variety of alarm options including email and text alerts, audible alarms or visual indicators such as flashing lights.  The systems can also be equipped with additional sensors depending on customer requirements.

The Oil Spill monitoring buoys and land-based systems utilise a real time non-contact hydrocarbon sensor, which is equipped with a pulsed UV LED beam and optical photo-detector with on-board software to enable detection of oil spills autonomously and immediately alert the users to any changes to protect vulnerable areas day and night, even under harsh weather conditions.

The Oil in Water buoy systems are equipped with submersible hydrocarbon sensors that can be positioned anywhere in the water column using the mooring systems themselves.

The systems are available for a variety of platforms, with OSIL engineers providing customers with an installation service complete with full training in the operation and maintenance of the equipment and on-going system support.

Oil Spill data direct to internet-enabled devices

Global marine monitoring systems manufacturers Ocean Scientific International Ltd (OSIL) can provide oil spill monitoring data and alarms directly to internet-enabled devices from any location with GSM/GPRS or satellite coverage.

The non-contact oil spill monitoring systems can be terrestrial or aquatic (using moored floating buoy platforms or fixed stations in shallow waters), and individual sensors can be networked together to cover multiple locations, with a single secure login to view all data.

 

The sensors are equipped with a pulsed UV LED beam and optical photo-detector with on-board software to enable immediate and autonomous detection of spills in vulnerable areas. The instruments can detect a variety of hydrocarbon based substances, even under harsh weather conditions, and can be set up to ignore other materials that fluoresce in the same wavelength. The systems can also be equipped with additional sensors (for water quality parameters, current monitoring, meteorological conditions, etc.).

The presentation of data can be easily configured with the powerful visualisation tools available on the data portal, and scheduled reports can be shared securely over ftp or email, or live data can be accessed using a password protectable direct URL link. Data security and privacy are assured with the highest levels of digital and physical security protecting the data centres

 

A unified alarm system allows notifications to be sent via email and text alert & the data portal will display the trigger data and alert on login. Alerts to issues with data collection and/or battery charging can also be incorporated.

 

OSIL engineers can provide customers with an installation service complete with full training in the operation and maintenance of the equipment and on-going system support.
