UK-based Ocean Scientific International Ltd (OSIL) has supplied a 1.2m Tern Buoy to Gardline Environmental Ltd, for installation in Cyprus.

The buoy is robust, with all cabled held internally, protected by the rugged enclosed top section, which has been designed to minimise damage from the elements or outside interference.

OSIL says the versatile platform also offers a high visibility profile, easily seen in high-traffic areas, and features a central structure which is said to offer a high degree of protection for valuable, sensitive, or delicate equipment, whilst maintaining good water flow for devices such as water quality sensors.

It’s equipped with a Nortek AWAC, acquiring full profile current speed and direction and wave data in addition to other ancillary parameters including GPS positioning. Data from the AWAC is currently transmitted via GSM, however, the buoy has also been fitted with the option to swap communications to Iridium satellite.

The Tern Buoy is designed for extended use in harsh coastal environments in deeper water depths, and is suitable for all applications, including scientific studies, water quality monitoring, coastal engineering projects, harbour and coastal monitoring and maritime traffic control.

OSIL manufactures a range of data buoys and monitoring systems, as well as a wide range of sampling equipment.
