Record swell recorded by a nke Instrumentation buoy
Installed off Saint-Brieuc, one of the nke buoys measured a maximum swell height of , è during #storm CIARAN!
On the graph, you can read that this maximum height was reached at 04:38, on the night of 01 to 02 November 2023.
The significant wave height (HS) corresponds to the average of the largest third of waves over a period of 30 minutes. At 05:08, the maximum SWH was 6.40 metres.
As part of the Ailes Marines project, we have developed eight bespoke instrumented buoys that provide local METOCEAN information (waves, wind, sea current, sea temperature) to maritime operators working on the wind farm site and sea turbidity measurements for the underwater works phase.
