TRIAXYS buoys for Ecuador’s Coastal Wave Monitoring Program

April 11, 2013

AXYS Technologies Inc. (AXYS) has recently delivered two TRIAXYS™ Next Wave Directional Wave Buoys to Instituto Oceanográfico De La Armada (INOCAR) of Ecuador. These TRIAXYS buoys will be deployed along the Ecuador coastline for its developing coastal wave monitoring program. The AXYS Services Team travelled to Guayaquil to provide system training, and will return shortly to continue instructing INOCAR personnel on managing and operating the network.

TRIAXYS_directional_wave_buoy 2011INOCAR chose to use the TRIAXYS wave buoy based on its success in other coastal monitoring networks for similar clients in South America. “INOCAR’s choice to use the TRIAXYS buoys builds on our foundation of success in South America to date. It’s great to see customers referring AXYS systems and services to colleagues in governmental institutions across South America for the development and upgrade of buoy networks,” says Chad MacIsaac, International Business Development, Marine Systems at AXYS. “We have strong agent representation throughout South America that provides local customer support in addition to the service available from our office in Canada. This support is critical during the early phases of implementing an operational buoy network.”

The mission of INOCAR is to plan, direct, coordinate and control the technical and administrative activities related to Hydrographic Service, Navigation, Oceanography, Meteorology, Marine Sciences, Marine Signaling and administration of specialized equipment to its activity.

AXYS’ representative in Ecuador, Smart Electronica SA, helped facilitate the contract and will be available to provide continued system support to the INOCAR in Ecuador.
