Martek and OceanWise to Improve Weather and Tide Monitoring in Ireland
Monitoring Specialists OceanWise have won a project with Dun Laoghaire Harbour in Ireland to upgrade and improve their Weather and Tide systems.
Just 7 miles south of Dublin, Dun Laoghaire Harbour is the largest man-made harbor in Western Europe and an important working port and leisure facility. Once the main sea route between Britain and Ireland, Dun Laoghaire is undergoing ongoing changes under the recent transfer of ownership and management to Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.
Martek and OceanWise will be delivering a project which will improve the entire tide and weather system by upgrading the systems used and installing new sensors and telemetry units (data modems). This upgrade forms part of the ongoing improvements undertaken at the harbor “for the benefit of its citizens” and will ensure the delivery of accurate, reliable, important environmental data to those who need it when they need it, in real-time via a webpage.
The project includes installation of a Gill Instruments Weather station (which measures Wind Speed/Direction, Atmospheric Pressure, Temperature, Humidity, Dew Point and Precipitation) a number of OceanWise ip.buffer smart telemetry modems and a C23 Radar (measuring tide / water levels) and a subscription to the cloud-based Data Platform ‘Port-Log’.
