AXYS Metocean Buoy Supports Polish Offshore Wind

A WatchKeeper meteorological and oceanographic data buoy from AXYS Technologies Inc (AXYS) has been deployed approximately 60km offshore along the Northern coast of Poland in the Baltic Sea.

This buoy, procured by polish developer Baltic Trade and Invest (BTI), will be used as part of their upcoming Environmental Impact and Assessment campaign in the Baltic Sea. This campaign will form part of the Environmental application for the offshore wind farm development “FEW Baltic II.”

The WatchKeeper buoy is equipped to provide wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, solar radiation, directional waves, current speed and direction, conductivity, and water temperature in near real-time via satellite telemetry. The buoy also uses a new AIS Aid to Navigation device, which broadcasts buoy position and weather information to local vessel traffic. This both protects the buoy from collision by notifying vessels of its location, and can also act as an additional telemetry method providing data within radio range.
