The height of floating drilling or pumping assets like platforms or FPSOs must be precisely maintained, even in the roughest seas with waves up to 30 m high. Environmental influences such as wind and waves must be measured quickly and accurately, then evaluated with GPS navigation data. Furthermore, quick and exact measurement of wave heights is needed should there be an evacuation, where "freefall lifeboats" need to be released to meet waves at their highest point.
Reliable measurement for protection of personnel and equipment
Long service life thanks to the use of non-contact measurement method
Measuring wave heights with non-contact radar
- Reliable measurement, independent of wind, temperature and fog
- Focussed 80 GHz beam and fast reaction for precision measurement
- Simple installation thanks to low weight of the sensors
Measuring range - Distance
