AXYS Technologies has won a tender in partnership with Metocean Services International (MSI) to supply Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) with four TRIAXYS wave buoys.
The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia’s national weather, climate and water agency.
In support of the Bureau’s marine weather and ocean services, a wave observing system that enables continued automated observation and reporting of hydrological surface waves at Kangaroo Island, South Australia and Strahan, Tasmania was required.
The first two TRIAXYS wave buoys have been delivered to BoM and are scheduled for deployment in August. The remaining two wave buoys will be built and sent in the fall of 2018.
