Ports & Harbours: A harbour is a sheltered body of water where ships, boats, and barges can be docked. A port is a location on a coast or shore containing one or more harbours where ships can dock and transfer people.
Ports & Harbours are safe havens for shipping and are the entry and exit points for trade in and out of the country. Keeping them monitored for safe passage is essential to keep trade moving and to avoid maritime accidents happening resulting in human and environmental consequences. Oceanographic equipment is used in the design and development of ports and harbours as well as the ongoing monitoring and maintenance to ensure efficient and safe operations.

Fixing your equipment is important to ensure it is still there when you return. Being able to recover it too is as important and the EdgeTech range of acoustic releases and pop up buoys allow this.
In column ADCP buoys and floats, complimented by the range of bottom frames means that you can get your instrumentation in the exact place that you need it. Combined with inbuilt release systems (such as EdgeTech’s) means that the entire mooring can be recovered, serviced and redeployed.
Knowing where you assets are when underwater, or at night, requires high intensity and reliable lights such as the Novatech flashers. When the assets are recovered by a 3rd party, be it by a weather event, a trawler or through sabotage, being alerted and being able to track it via satellite gives an increased chance of recovery.
Keeping your sensors clean in a marine environment is always the challenge. Zebra-Tech’s range of wipers allows sensors for Tu, PAR, DO, etc. be physically wiped ensuring that the data you collect is as good as possible. A range of wipers for camera systems is also available ensuring your view is not obscurred and service visits by divers can be extended.
