Tidal Monitoring at the Port of Waterford

OceanWise are proud to announce a recent contract win with the Port of Waterford to help with their aim to consolidate, manage and bettershare environmental data collected by a diverse range of environmental sensors across their port jurisdiction.

The port of Waterford, dubbed ‘Ireland’s closest multimodal port to continental Europe’, operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

The Waterford harbour is an estuary where channel depths can vary with tidal height significantly affecting safe vessel passage. OceanWise will be supporting their operations by installing the data management system PortLog, widely used by many ports and harbours around the UK and overseas.

This system will allow the Waterford pilots and port operators access to important realtime data and personalised alerts, which closely monitor the ever changing tide and environmental conditions in the port.
