UK-based Ocean Scientific International Ltd (OSIL) have recently supplied a 1.2m Tern Buoy to Gardline Environmental Ltd, for installation in Cyprus.

The 1.2m Tern Buoy system is extremely robust, with all cables held internally, protected by the rugged enclosed top section, which has been designed to minimise damage from the elements or outside interference. The versatile platform also offers a higher visibility profile, easily seen in high-traffic areas, and boasts a central structure which offers a very high degree of protection for valuable, sensitive, or delicate equipment, whilst maintaining good water flow for e.g. water quality sensors.

The Tern buoy is designed for extended deployment in harsh coastal environments in deeper water depths, and is suitable for all applications, including scientific studies, water quality monitoring, coastal engineering projects, harbour and coastal monitoring, and maritime traffic control.

The buoy is equipped with a Nortek AWAC, acquiring full profile current speed and direction and wave data in addition to other ancillary parameters including GPS positioning. Data from the AWAC is currently transmitted via GSM, however the buoy has also been equipped with the option to swap comms to Iridium satellite.

OSIL manufacture a variety of data buoys and monitoring systems, as well as a wide range of sampling equipment. For further information or sales enquiries please contact: or call +44 (0) 2392 488 240.
