National Cheng Kung University

INCKU_Logo_2011n May 2013, National Cheng Kung University purchased a FLiDAR WindSentinel system from AXYS Technologies as the first floating LiDAR system for the Asian market. The FLiDAR WindSentinel was selected for its flexibility and mobility that enables significant cost and time savings compared to constructing a meteorological tower.

As an early launch customer for the FLiDAR WindSentinel, NCKU worked with AXYS to identify ways to increase the robustness of the system. Improvements implemented from these early trials have further increased the reliability of AXYS current FLiDAR 6M offering. Read the full letter here: NCKU FLiDAR Testimonial Letter

DHI 

DHISince 2012, DHI has acquired 12 TRIAXYS Wave & Current buoys from AXYS Technologies Inc. The TRIAXYS Wave & Current buoys are deployed at offshore wind farms in the North Sea, the Irish Sea and the Baltic Sea and transmit near real-time directional wave data and current profile data, which assists the weather forecasting and daily operations in and around the wind farms.

Grand Valley State University, Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center

Arn_BoezaartThe FLiDAR WindSentinel has provided Grand Valley State University an unprecedented opportunity to collect a wide range of wind and other research data from our Great Lakes. This first of its kind research effort and the data accumulated provides a base line for researchers and wind energy development efforts to come. Our work not only advances the knowledge base of the wind resource of Lake Michigan but also makes break through contributions to topics as diverse as boundary layer research and the previously unknown movement and migratory habits of bats over the Lake.

Puma Energy

Puma_Energy_LogoPuma Energy purchased a 1.8 meter WatchMate ODAS buoy from AXYS Technologies Inc. The WatchMate buoy was purchased to assist the operations team to assess the safe mooring of vessels delivering fuel bulk cargos to the terminal. In addition to the above buoy system, AXYS personnel traveled to San Jose, Guatemala to provide system training, commission the buoy and assist with its deployment.

AXYS has provided great customer support, beginning with the initial correspondence discussing the buoy through to regular customer service when required by staff operating the buoy. We would certainly recommend AXYS Technologies as a leading manufacturer of ODAS buoys. Read the full letter here: Puma Energy WatchMate Testimonial

Caribbean Wind

The Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System consists of ten AXYS WatchKeeper buoys located throughout the Chesapeake Bay, continuously reporting real-time oceanographic, biological, water quality, and meteorological data. Data from the WatchMan500 are transmitted via commercial cellular network and collected using the AXYS DMS software. The DMS software is an extremely reliable and flexi2000px-NOAA_logo.svgble product that meets all the system operational and development needs.

As the first Program Manager and Technical Lead for CBIBS, I recommend the initial selection of AXYS products, acquired them for the system, and I continue to be pleased with their performance and reliability. Support from AXYS technical and professional staff has been excellent over the years. The WatchKeeper buoys themselves have survived numerous storms and hurricanes, as well as ship impacts, with little or no damages.

BMT WBM

BMT WBM purchased a HydroLevel Mini buoy from AXYS Technologies, via AXYS’s Australian representative Metocean Services International. The buoy was acquired to reduce offshore tidal data collected using a number of seabed mounted tide gauges in Darwin, Australia to a common datum. In addition to the supply of the buoy system, AXYS personnel provided system training to BMT WBM staff at AXYS’ facility in Sidney, B.C. Since acquisition of the buoy, BMT WBM has used the buoy for a similar project in Gladstone, Australia and is currently proposing its use for another project in Western Australia.

AXYS has provided great customer support, beginning with the initial correspondence discussing the buoy through to regular customer service when required by staff operating the buoy. We would certainly recommend AXYS Technologies as a leading manufacturer of ODAS buoys. Read the full letter here: BMT HydroLevel Mini Testimonial

University of Victoria, Department of Geography

PfWMJEaPIn March 2011 we purchased a 1.8 metre diameter WatchMate data buoy from AXYS Technologies under a project funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency and supported by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).  In addition to the supply of the above buoy system, AXYS also provided 3 days of on site training at their Sidney facility, and assisted in the delivery of the buoy to the Institute of Ocean Sciences, where it was loaded onto the Canadian Coast Guard Icebreaker Sir Wilfred Laurier for deployment.

The WatchMate buoy was deployed to the harsh Bering Strait region near Alaska. During this time the buoy provided a very high data return rate (99%). It also survived some very harsh marine conditions, including 9 metre waves and 40 knot winds. We were very impressed with how AXYS operates, from the initial systems requirements discussions right through to recovery of the buoy. We found them to be very open, honest and flexible in meeting our needs. We can highly recommend the WatchMate buoy as a high performing and reliable scientific instrument.

Marine Institute School of Ocean Technology

The School of Ocean Technology of the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland currently leads the Placentia Bay ‘SmartBay’ Ocean Observation initiative. SmartBay plays an important role in support of industrial operations in Placentia Bay. SmartBay went ‘live’ in September 2006 with deployment of its first meteorological/ oceanographic buoy, an AXYS 3-metre discus. With the exception of regular maintenance the unit has performed reliably since that time despite being located in one of the world’s harshest operating environments.

With over three years of operational experience, I can confidently say that we are impressed with the performance of the 3-metre buoy and have no hesitation recommending it for either short or long term deployment application. The level of support and assistance provided by AXYS Technologies has been excellent and in some instances ‘beyond the call’. Read the full letter here: Marine Institute MetOcean buoys Testimonial

Environment Canada

environment-canadaAXYS has supplied Environment Canada with payload systems for use in NOMAD, three meter and WatchKeeper buoys deployed in the Northern Pacific Ocean, Western Atlantic and inland lakes in Canada. Our network includes 16 NOMADs, five of which were supplied on a turnkey basis by AXYS. AXYS has also been under contract to supply Environment Canada with factory and field maintenance services. These services include regular system maintenance, calibration, technological upgrades, mooring design and construction, training, and shipboard deployment and recovery support.

At Environment Canada, we are pleased with the data provided by the moored buoy network. The AXYS systems in use have performed very well with an operational reliability of better than 95% on the payloads. In addition, the technical support provided by AXYS has been of a high quality and has played a major part in the success of the program.
