Buoys and radar successfully installed

June 27th, 2019

Today we managed, despite the weather forecast to install the radar close to Lysekil and Brofjorden.

The radar is mounted on the island, we can follow the local weather conditions online and receive data samples to shore for evaluation and analysis.

We installed 3 wave spotter buoys covering the wave and wind conditions and one reflector buoy for the radar.

Thanks for the team effort to Christian and Ursula from Kristineberg, Magnus and Roberto from Emerson/ Rosemount Tankradar, Amin from Saferadar, Tomas and Christian from RISE! Thanks also to Kristineberg Center and Sjöfartsverket for their kind support, making the installations feasible! We will try to get a page online on which you can follow the weather as recorded by the buoys!

Now I enjoy life out here in the sun!
