Instrumented buoy – measurement chain & current sensor
The instrumented buoy was set up in 2005 and one of the aims of this buoy is to measure in real time the temperature when the Blayais nuclear power plan rejects cooling water in the river.
The system mounted on one buoy includes:
Instrumentation: measurement chain 10 x Pt 100, atmospheric pressure sensor, ADCP-current sensor
Data transmission: GPRS and UHF
Low energy consumption: solar panels
Buoy: 2500 Liters Float, traffic lights and St. Andrew’s cross
Measurement operating software
