Managing Silt and Tide Levels

ABP Mer approached us to provide a system that would monitor tide levels and turbidity over a period of two years whilst the waters around Southampton and the River Hamble were being dredged. The project was expected to last for two years.

The amount of silting was of significant importance to the marinas along the Hamble as it affects the depths of their moorings.

In many cases we provide R-DNA to our clients where it is used on an ongoing basis. However, R-DNA also lends itself to temporary monitoring projects due to it’s low cost and easy setup. This was a case in point where the water needed to be monitored for a relatively short period of two years.

River Hamble

We were approached to provide a hardware solution and the recommended hardware setup was;

Communication between the sensors and the Gateway is made wirelessly. The Gateway collates the data and sends to R-DNA for processing, hourly.

This project ran successfully for the 2 year period between 2014 and 2016.

If you have any short term or temporary data collection/monitoring requirements then please get in touch with us to discuss how our R-DNA solution can help.
