Sensor Combination for Environmental Monitoring in Gulf Spill

Chelsea Technologies Group has seen growing demand for its UV AQUAtracka fluorimeter to monitor the extent and dispersion of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Originally designed for military use, these highly sensitive fluorimeters are monitoring the extent of the oil from surface waters to full ocean depth. The UV AQUAtracka is now being used in combination with the FASTtracka Mark II fast repetition rate fluorimeter to monitor the effects of the oil on the primary productivity of the Gulf. The FASTtracka II has undergone extensive challenge testing to characterise its response to contamination events in the aquatic... (read more)

Wärtsilä Unveils Targetless Laser Sensor for Offshore Wind Farms

Wärtsilä has launched SceneScan, a targetless laser sensor for offshore wind farms. SceneScan Monopole is among the first laser sensors developed for offshore wind farm applications where the need for installing fixed reflective targets is eliminated. This technology is designed to increase safety onboard service operation vessels (SOVs), since vessel positioning sensors that rely on targets fixed to the structure, are often unreliable because of poor placement, poor quality, and obscurement by workers on the platform. SceneScan has been designed and developed by Guidance Marine, which was acquired by Wärtsilä in 2017. SceneScan Monopole’s advanced software allows the measurement of... (read more)

Oil Sensor-equipped Smart Buoy Delivers Data via Satellite

A smart navigation buoy system has started delivering real-time measurement data via satellites of oil and some other water quality parameters in the Baltic Sea. It is located south of Helsinki in the Gulf of Finland. The monitoring data gives many advantages to oil spill response teams and helps revealing illegal oil discharges. The system is part of SYKE’s Grace project cooperation and is manufactured by Meritaito. The data is freely available online. The real-time remote measurement is a big advance in oil detection and environmental monitoring. It is significantly quicker with satellite data transfer and can provide more accurate... (read more)
