MetOcean Systems – Sensors for reliable Weather and Subsea observations

Introduction

Nautikaris offers the best for all worlds for building and integration of MetOcean Systems, used in various markets such as Environmental Monitoring, Port Monitoring and Coastal Observation.

Aanderaa

Aanderaa products have plaid important roles within the oceanographic community since 1966. The Aanderaa Current Meters were from the beginning known for their reliability and were early considered as “the standard” when it came to current measurements.
Over the years the oceanographic product portfolios have undergone an evolution and the range of products have been broadened substantially. Today the oceanographic products are utilizing the newest technology comprising, among others, the most powerful microcontrollers and digital signal processors. Advanced software solutions and powerful processors are utilized in the data loggers, and XML– and modern Bus technology give safe and fast data transfer. Sensors are utilizing the most advanced multi-frequency acoustic technology as well as optical technology.
Aanderaa instruments and sensors are used world-wide within oceanography, by surveyors, within hydrography and by oceanographic – and climate researchers and many others.

Offshore Measurement - Vaisala

Offshore measurements

By having reliable and accurate real-time weather observations of your working environment you won’t have to make your operational decisions based on intuition. The decision will have consequences from many aspects usually balancing between safety and economic efficiency.
Vaisala can provide you with reliable weather observations measured by our unique technology, continuously developed by our professional team of scientists and engineers.

Aanderaa instrumentation has offered high quality information to improve the safety of the offshore operations for more than 40 years.
Aanderaa instrumentation has offered high quality information to improve the safety of the offshore operations for more than 40 years. Accurate measurements improve environmental impact assessment and the preparation of contingency plans, operational models and forecasts, wherever offshore activities are conducted.  Aanderaa’s user defined Met-Ocean instrument platforms offer a smart and flexible observation system without the huge cost of a custom solution.

Environmental Monitoring Systems

Vaisala has a decades-long tradition in providing solutions to offshore weather observations. Their products and services are being used as part of Environmental Monitoring Systems, Helideck Monitoring Systems, and Marine Weather Reporting. Our products and systems fullfil the relevant British and Norwegian standards (CAP 437 and NORSOK N-002) and comply with the relevant ICAO requirements and WMO recommendations.

Aanderaa is a leading player in the collection and transmission of environmental information.  Accurate measurements improve environmental impact assessment and the preparation of contingency plans, operational models and forecasts, wherever offshore activities are conducted.  Our user defined Met-Ocean instrument platforms offer a smart and flexible observation system without the huge cost of a custom solution.
Aanderaa systems for offshore includes SEAGUARD®, RDCP, oil boom Doppler log, weather stations, wave and tide stations and buoy systems. Data from our equipment can be displayed over AIS, internet or to be integrated into other systems.

Aanderaa Port Monitoring

Port Monitoring

What to monitor, where, and how will depend on the characteristics of the port in question?
Especially where large tanker operations are the case, reliable and accurate measurement of visibility, wind direction and speed are critical not only when approaching the port but also in berthing safety. Approaching storms and high winds can interfere crane operations preventing loading and unloading. In addition, oceanographic measurements such as current, wave height, sea level, and salinity can all be part of a modern system supporting complex port environments. The end result is increased safety, and successful and continuous cargo handling in port operations.
Vaisala Terminal Weather Monitoring System with local real-time data collection, display software, data storage and hosted data management service give users real-time but also history weather information when needed and allow them to concentrate on their main operations. Service contracts keep the systems up and running.
Vaisala can provide you with reliable weather observations measured by our unique technology, continuously developed by our professional team of scientists and engineers. Our systems are flexible adapting to your needs, field proven in thousands of installations from pole to pole and even in outer space
Systems designed to monitor the traffic conditions into ports and on sailing fairways..
Real Time Hyd/Met Systems Systems from Aanderaa as stand-alone system or integrated to existing systems? The choice is yours we have the solutions.
Wind and current conditions real time made available over internet, AIS or integrated in VTS solutions to Harbor pilots, Ship bridges, VTS operators, Harbour Authorities and other public and governmental departments. Storage of historical data Need to look at data from a particular time window? Now you can have it all stored locally and just clicks away on your computer.

Coastal Observation

Vaisala Vessel Traffic Weather Systems provide accurate and timely information to improve maritime safety and efficient navigation of ships when approaching ports. Our systems are easy to integrate with CSS, VTS, AIS and AtoN systems. Vaisala offering fulfills the international maritime standards including IALA Recommendation V-128 requirements. The systems are scalable from a single weather station to complete coastal weather network and can be easily integrated to vessel traffic services and other systems.
Weather observations by Vaisala Maritime Weather Stations with Vaisala Sensor Technology and a wide range of communication solutions are flexible and fit to your needs and the local conditions.
Vaisala’s data collection and network monitoring systems ensure continuous operation and data quality. Maintenance contracts guarantee peace of mind for years to come. ​Hosted data services allow integration of all weather related information into one user-friendly interface accessible through any internet connection.
In coastal research Aanderaa offers reliable, compact, low power consuming and user-friendly sensors and systems measuring a wide range of parameters at the highest quality. They offer “Smart Sensors” to measure Currents, Oxygen, Conductivity/Salinity/Density, Wave/Tide, Vented Wave/Tide and Pressure.  All smart sensors have in-built high quality temperature sensors and deliver absolute readings. The sensors can be connected directly to a PC or to a third party data logger using serial communication. Sensors can also be “plug-and-play” connected to a sensor network using an Aanderaa developed CAN-bus communication called AiCaP.
SeaGuard II DCP is Aanderaa’s multisensor current profiler specially adapted for coastal research. SeaGuard platform is the logger unit for all other parameters. SeaGuard underwater loggers can host more than 20 smart sensor, placed in e.g. up to 300 m long sensor stings, as well as 4 analog sensors (e.g. for Turbidity, Chlorophyll, PAR, Cyanobateria). SmartGuard land and buoy based loggers opens additional possibilities for integration of meteorological and third part sensors.
RCM Blue is an easy to use instrument with Bluetooth communication for set-up and data download and is dedicated to measure currents and optional pressure at the highest quality.
