Muir Matheson supplies a range of bespoke harbour monitoring systems around the world. Using pressure sensors, wave and level radars, acoustic doppler radars and peizo magnetic systems Muir Matheson are able to monitor tide levels, waves, currents at most harbour sites.

The problem:

Worldwide the Oil industry takes the problem of spills very seriously. For most this means taking mitigating and preventative action before an oil spill occurs and being prepared for the worst.

The Solution:

In the Niger Delta Рa particularly environmentally sensitive area РShell have worked with Muir Matheson to install wave and current monitoring systems. In order to be able to predict the movement of pollutants were any spillage to take place. Combining acoustic doppler systems (measuring current) with pressure monitor (measuring tide and wave action) along with a standard weather station Muir Matheson has been able to supply a data history allowing Shell to model the likely effects of a spill at any given point and to put in place measures to mitigate the effects.

If you need to monitor sea levels or current flows please contact our application engineers.
