Second Harbour Regeneration deployment for OSIL buoy

Second Harbour Regeneration deployment for OSIL buoy

A turbidity monitoring buoy built by OSIL is to be re-deployed by BAM Construction on a further dredging project in Ireland.


The buoy was originally purchased as part of a network to monitor the dredging activity for the new Bantry Harbour Marina (Cork, Ireland), part of the €8.5 million Bantry Inner Harbour Redevelopment project, which was completed recently, and the buoy will now be deployed to another BAM project having completed a full system check at OSIL.


The 0.7m Small Field Buoy can easily be deployed from a small boat by hand, and will now be monitoring continuous dredging in a berthing pocket adjacent to the new quay at Cork Container Terminal. The buoy is equipped with a wiped turbidity sensor complete with a conversion factor to change the units’ sidescatter output readings to Total Suspended Solids in mg/L that was calculated by OSIL’s technical team. Data is relayed in real time using GPRS/GSM to ensure that turbidity levels are continually monitored during the process.
