Ports and Harbors
Safe Navigation – Efficient Port - Systems for meteorological data for ports and harbors
Complete MetOcean systems are designed to monitor traffic conditions to ports and fairways, displaying information on the internet or integrated into existing systems. The primary purpose of the systems is to provide real-time and historical data to VTS operators, ship pilots, ship bridges, harbor authorities, and other public and governmental bodies via the Internet or AIS systems.
Harbors and fairways worldwide have installed Xylem solutions from Aanderaa, YSI, and SonTek. Large ports with radar-based Vessel Traffic Management (VTS) and smaller ports without radar-based VTS systems use these MetOcean systems to provide essential data input for safe maneuvering and improve port efficiency.
Aanderaa leverages more than 50 years of experience, including MetOcean systems used for measuring Ocean Currents and Ocean Waves. The multiparameter measurements are in real-time, displayed on cloud-based solutions, or integrated into client systems. The collected data helps stakeholders make more informed decisions related to port operations and general ocean health.
With systems ranging from single sensors connected to a computer to fully automated and self-contained MetOcean systems such as our MOTUS Buoys or cabled underwater systems, we have the experience and equipment you need.
