Terminals are typically designed and operated with set limits for MetOcean conditions to ensure safety of the vessel and the terminal. Real-time MetOcean data and trends assist operators in maximizing their berth’s operating window by providing measurements at the berth. Tide, current and wave information can be provided to the staff at the berth, at the operations centre, or to the vessel.
Trelleborg’s Oceanographic Monitoring Systems include sensors from the leading instrument manufacturers. Instruments deployed in the marine environment are subject to harsh conditions and as such our experience in equipment selection and deployment techniques ensures rugged, reliable and maintainable systems suitable for the conditions.
