AWAMS Integration Testing & Deployment Summer 2022

Over the past 6 months TechWorks Marine and the DCU Water Institute have been working together to deliver a final deployment as part of their project goals.

In that time, a number of reliability studies have been carried out in the lab to validate the sensors against existing oceanographic sensors such as the EXO2 sonde developed by YSI. These have indicated excellent comparisons between the sensors when tested using turbidity and chlorophyll standards at multiple concentrations. Once this was completed the teams came together to carry out a second deployment in Dun Laoighaire harbour. This was done over a number of weeks and the outputs were very successful.

Looking ahead to the final few weeks of the project the teams will engage the sensor network in a number of use cases where we will activate all sensors in a range of locations off the Irish coast to gather information in a number of settings and scenarios.

Irish Companies front and centre at RenewableUK #rukgow22 thanks to Enterprise Ireland. Great showcase of the existing talent in the supply chain in Ireland. Exciting time to be part of the growing #offshorewind industry and seeing the ambition on display. #metocean @Entirl

Always big fans of maps! Here's a great one from @LaTeneMaps at @renewableuk #rukgow22 really showing the #offshore #wind opportunities that are here in Europe! #metocean

We can’t wait for Global Offshore Wind starting tomorrow! Our Marine Operations Manager Kieran Craven will be there, so give him a shout if you want to discuss anything #MetOcean #RUKGOW22 #offshore #windpower

Our MD @charlotteokelly presented our 20 years #metocean expertise at the @Entirl #offshorewind event in @CrokePark yesterday. @gaeloffshorenetwork @Marineireland @Off_Ren

We're looking forward to attending @ESA_EO #LPS22 all next week - our team will be at the @earsc booth on Monday & have 2 posters on display on Monday & Tuesday. Come and have a chat about marine data & EO for the ocean!

We recently kicked off a new @EPAIreland project to assess the application of Earth Observation technologies to the detection and prevention of waste crime🛰️ Read more:
