Amarcon, a part of the ABB group, and OceanWaveS GmbH, a fully owned subsidiary of Rutter Inc., will demonstrate an OCTOPUS-Onboard advisory suite including Wave and Surface Current Monitoring System set-up during the SMM in Hamburg, from 9 – 12 September 2014. SMM visitors are invited to view the demonstration at the Rutter booth, hall B6.FG/001.
The Amarcon OCTOPUS-Onboard motion monitoring, forecasting and decision support toolkit has an interface with the Wave and Surface Current Monitoring System (WaMoS® II) from OceanWaveS GmbH. WaMoS II has been developed for real time measurement of directional ocean wave spectra. A significant advantage of WaMoS II is the continuous availability of wave data in rough seas, under harsh weather conditions with limited visibility, and at night. The WaMoS® II technology is broadly accepted within the maritime community and has been installed on hundreds of vessels throughout the years in segments like offshore & drilling, shuttle tankers, container ships and survey vessels.
WaMoS® II measures and displays all the essential wave field parameters:
-significant wave height (Hs)
-peak wave period (Tp)
-peak wave direction (θp) for both wind sea and swell
-surface current speed (U)
-current direction (θu)
