Port Weather Monitoring

​By having accurate real-time observations of your working environment you won't have to make your operational decisions based on intuition. 

What to monitor, where, and how will depend on the characteristics of the port in question. Especially where large tanker operations are the case, reliable and accurate measurement of visibility, wind direction and speed are critical not only when approaching the port but also in berthing safety. Approaching storms and high winds can interfere crane operations preventing loading and unloading. In addition, oceanographic measurements such as current, wave height, sea level, and salinity can all be part of a modern system supporting complex port environments. The end result is increased safety, and successful and continuous cargo handling in port operations.
