Profiling floats deployment! 🌊

Profiling floats deployment! 🌊

The first 2️⃣ floats for the REFINE project were deployed last week in the Labrador sea by Edouard Leymarie from the LOV.


Those Jumbo BGC Argo floats measure the 6 standard BGC variables and the large particles and zooplankton thanks to the underwater vision profiler sensor embedded on the float.


The aim of the REFINE project is to deploy several BGC Argo floats to explore the Twilight Zone!

Annual maintenance of our buoy network!

Annual maintenance of our buoy network!

For more than 15 years, nke has installed a network of instrumented buoys in front of the EDF Le Blayais nuclear power plant.


➡️ These buoys aim to measure temperature in real time from sea surface to bottom, when the Blayais nuclear power plant rejects cooling water in the river.


The encrypted data are transmitted in real time to the nuclear plant via a UHF modem.

#AST23 – Vendor day

Last week, Jérôme SAGOT from NKE presented to the #ARGO community the very last performance results of our profiling floats: reliability, performance, long lasting autonomy…

Our BGC argo floats can embed lots of sensors, with 60% more energy, to meet the needs of ocean studies.

Thanks to the AST23 organizers and all the participants!

Profiling floats tests 🧪

Last week, the NKE Team was at Ifremer in Brest to tests some profiling floats to finalize the production.

3 CTS4 profiling floats equipped with pH and DO sensors and 3 CTS4 Jumbo (they have more batteries) equipped with pH, DO, REM-A and SUNA sensors were tested.

Ready to be deployed at sea! 🌊

Mooring tests on oceanographic buoys

Mooring tests on oceanographic buoys

Yannick was recently on the field to make some tests regarding our oceanographic buoys.
Those buoys aim to measure in real time the turbidity level at 150 meters below the water surface and 3 meters above the bottom.
