AXYS Technologies, Inc. (AXYS) announces TRIAXYS™ with Currents buoy to improve tanker berthing safety

August 15, 2013

AXYS Technologies Inc. (AXYS) has been awarded a contract from Metocean Services International (MSI) of South Africa to supply a TRIAXYS™ with Currents buoy.The buoy will provide wave and current data to tankers approaching a conventional buoy mooring (CBM) facility, which is anchored offshore and serves as a mooring point for tankers to offload oil products. Armed with environmental data at their fingertips, ship captains will have the ability to make mission critical decisions quickly, thereby improving safety at sea and knowledge of environmental conditions around the CBM. In addition, company engineers, pipeline construction managers, work crews, and regulatory authorities will be able to access buoy data via AXYS’ proprietary WaveView™ software.
TRIAXYS™ with Currents is a rugged, lightweight data collection buoy.  The 0.9m diameter solar-powered instrument collects, processes, stores and transmits wave & current information to a shore base station in near real time. The buoy features an integrated Nortek Aquadopp Acoustic Doppler Profilers (ADP) that obtains detailed current profiles through the water column.

Terms of the sale are confidential and have not been provided.

The buoys will be air freighted to the client in late 2008. MSI will undertake the deployment and servicing of the buoy.
