Pharos Marine can trace their origins back to 1904, and have been producing world class navigation buoys throughout the World. Planet Ocean are experts in the field of sensors and systems and have been producing data buoy solutions since 2004.
The partnership will see Pharos Marine responsible for manufacturing the buoy hulls and mooring designs whilst Planet Ocean will provide the sensors, loggers and telemetry solutions along with data visualisation systems via their delivery partner OceanWise www.oceanwise.eu. The new systems will also be able to take advantage of the conservation mooring capabilities of the Safe-Moor compliant mooring system from another of the Planet Ocean partners.
The DB range covers 1.25m to 3.6m diameter buoys specifically designed for data buoy applications incorporating a number of features which make them ideally suited to this application. The systems offer a growing range of MetOcean parameters and telemetry options including radio, cell and satellite.
Pharos Marine, based in the UK also have offices in Houston USA and Singapore, allowing the pairing to address a far wider market for data buoy systems.
