Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology selects TRIAXYS Wave Buoy Network

July 31, 2018

AXYS Technologies Inc (AXYS) is pleased to announce that they have recently won a tender in partnership with Metocean Services International (MSI) to supply Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) with four TRIAXYS Wave buoys.

TRIAXYS Directional Wave BuoyThe Bureau of Meteorology is Australia’s national weather, climate and water agency. Through regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the Australian region and Antarctic territory, the Bureau provides one of the most fundamental and widely used services of government. 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 TRIAXYS accurately measures and transmits directional wave data using the TRIAXYS solid state wave sensor, which provides near real-time access to continuous wave measurements and does not require annual calibration.

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. The MSI technical team will be on hand to assist BoM with deployment of the buoys and setting up operations.
Over the last decade, more than 300 TRIAXYS wave buoys have been deployed on various projects throughout the world. The TRIAXYS has been reliably proven to assist with safe Aid to Navigation activities, port operations, offshore construction, offshore wind farms, wave resource assessment, and National Meteorological coastal monitoring. The buoy has extensive success surviving harsh marine conditions at depths ranging from 10-300m and is easy to deploy with low maintenance costs.
