Make better berthing decisions

GLEN’s Environmental Monitoring Systemsare a vital aid to safe and controlled berthing operations. By gathering oceanographical and meteorological data from sensitive sensor arrays, pilots and jetty operators can use the trend data for better and safer decision making for the berthing operation. A system built around a weather station and supported by measurements including tidal, wave, and sea currents.

 

As specialist manufacturers of Quick Release Hooks, Glen is an expert in all aspects of berthing and mooring applications, including the recommendation and supply of their EMS systems to support a safe berthing process.

System Overview

A Glen-supplied Environmental Monitoring System is built around a weather station, designed to provide common meteorological measurements, and supported by more complex oceanographical measurements that include tidal, wave and sea currents.

Weather Station meteorological measurements

Today’s weather stations are highly sophisticated devices, capable of making a wide range of measurements, while resilient enough to ensure challenging weather conditions. Weather stations offer monitoring of commonly required conditions, including precipitation, air temperature, humidity, wind velocity, wind direction, as well as the presence of rain, snow, or hail. A weather station’s compact footprint means it is easy to install on jetties, quays, or even buoys. Requiring minimal maintenance, the systems are protected from water ingress and UV radiation – making them effective in all weather conditions.

Accurate oceanographical measurements

For customers requiring more detailed, more complex measurements are available. Measurements are available for visibility, wave direction, seawater weight, and ocean current profiles.

 

For more detailed wave and tide data, sensors can be located at different sea depths to create a more detailed picture of sea conditions: Data on tidal levels, wave amplitude and intervals, water depth and seawater weight, temperature, and saline levels can all be extracted from the array, giving jetty operators highly accurate insights into conditions, and helping them anticipate potentially difficult or dangerous berthing or mooring. Seawater temperatures can be measured using a Doppler sensor, capable not only of measuring temperature, but also sea current speed and direction.

The Right Solution Delivered by GLEN.

Experts in all aspects of safe mooring and berthing, Glen recommends Environmental Monitoring Systems tailored to the specific measurements required by the quay, jetty, and port operators. We supply high-quality, weather systems that provide accurate and consistent measurements with low maintenance requirements, while more complex sensor arrangements, including seawater measurements, are made utilizing high-quality sensors designed to resist contamination, salinity and acidity.
