Port of Cork Company have reported that the Coast Eye marine monitoring buoy in the approaches of Cork Harbour, near to Roches point, continued to transmit a consistent signal and excellent data during the peak of hurricane Ophelia, recording a maximum wave heights of over 11.5m and continued to provide live data throughout the storm.
Additionally, a network of CoastEye data buoys, commissioned by Dublin Port and located in middle of Dublin Bay live streamed the effects of the storm on turbidity, currents and waves, with a maximum wave height of 4.75m recorded there.
As both of the sites are extremely exposed they received the full force of the winds that exceeded 96mph (156kph) at the Roches point Met Éireann station. TechWorks Marine co-founder Charlotte O’Kelly commented that the ability of their CoastEye Marine Data systems to survive one of the most extreme weather events in recent history and to continue to provide live and critical data to their key customers demonstrates our team’s leadership in designing, delivering and managing robust, reliable and secure marine data systems, even under extreme conditions.
