Tidal Monitoring at the Port of Waterford
OceanWise is proud to announce a recent contract with the Port of Waterford to help consolidate, manage and better share environmental data collected by a diverse range of environmental sensors across their port jurisdiction.
The port of Waterford, dubbed ‘Ireland’s closest multi-modal port to continental Europe’, operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The Waterford harbour is an estuary where channel depths can vary with tidal height significantly affecting safe vessel passage. OceanWise is supporting the port’s operations using an online installation our data management and display system, Port-Log, which is widely used by numerous ports and harbours around the UK and overseas. This system allows Waterford’s maritime pilots and port operators access important real-time data and personalised alerts, which closely monitor the ever changing tide and environmental conditions in the port.
