Ten of the seventeen buoys are already deployed and operational within various Italian ports; remaining buoys will be deployed in the next few weeks. The data buoys are based on the well proven WatchKeeper buoy platform and TRIAXYS Directional Wave Sensor.

The Italian government also uses the data for wave and climate research studies.   Live data from these buoys can be seen at the following link:
