DataFish DB GRP
high flow data buoy platform

The DataFish is an infused GRP data buoy platform designed for extremely kinetic marine environments. It is suitable for use in offshore locations where extreme tidal flows are experienced.

The buoy's hydronamic design makes it ideal for use in extreme wave and tidal conditions of 5m/s tidal flows and wave heights of up to 9m. The maximum stability and minimum drag of the DataFish buoy vastly reduces mooring requirements.

The data buoy can be fitted with a variety of sensors for use in diverse applications and has a single lifting point for ease of deployment and recovery, which North Sea Systems have a qualified team to undertake where needed. Real-time data gives confidence in correct deployment and provides immediate feedback on environmental conditions. A large battery capacity and power generation enables extended duration surveys without intervention.

North Sea Systems provide a complete solution including web-based packages to access data. In addition, they can undertake data analysis on behalf of clients where requested.
