Measuring and looking after our water resource is a hot topic worldwide. Governments, Councils, Water Authorities, Companies and individuals all are increasing their efforts to help protect this resource. EU Legislation around monitoring landfills, nitrate levels and the water framework directive have been introduced to help guide water quality monitoring. Aquaread’s range of water quality instruments are all suitable for spot, short and long-term deployments and are a popular choice for companies as they...
Measurement of water quality in coastal regions and estuaries is critical in the characterization of hypoxic ‘dead zones’ as a result of nutrient loading and algal blooms in the water bodies. Sediment loading analysis through turbidity measurement is also important for coastal trend identification and modeling. Hydrolab and Sea-Bird Scientific offer a variety of multiparameter water quality instrumentation and nutrient sensors for long-term coastal applications. Sea-Bird Scientific water quality...
UV disinfection is now a standard final treatment stage in most wastewater treatment plants worldwide. Our UV systems are widely favoured due to their environmentally friendly, chemical-free and ability to provide high-log reductions of all known micro-organisms, including chlorine resistant strains, such as Cryptosporidium. As growing environmental awareness and stricter regulations drive effluent discharge standards and water re-use initiatives to achieve greater performance, UV water treatment is fast...
Surface water monitoring as an application covers many different environments and can require different equipment depending on the monitoring requirements. Possible environments include lakes, rivers and coastal waters where the monitoring may be focused on water quality or water level measurement. Aquaread offer instruments suitable for each of these environments and have a wide range of possibilities depending on the kind of data you wish to collect.
In order to protect the natural environment (rivers, lakes, beaches, coastal areas) increasingly stricter regulations have been implemented to limit release of pathogenic microorganisms originating from domestic wastewater. Therefore, many wastewater utilities have adopted ultraviolet (UV) as the most appropriate treatment option as opposed to chemical disinfection.
So, what is the next step for USV technology? Developing larger, longer endurance USVs and taking them beyond shallow waters. OceanAlpha has continued its quest to develop autonomous vessels, integrating them with multibeam sonar, sub-bottom profilers, side scan sonar, CTD, SVP, and LiDAR capabilities for the oceanographic survey community. OceanAlpha’s USVs have been placed with lead users in the markets and have been applied from coastal oceanographic surveying to open sea areas, including the Antarctic...
Our samplers and analyzersare two complementary products for water sampling and monitoring in natural settings. Placed at various strategic points along a river, coastal zone, or lake, they perform sampling and microbiological or chemical analysis operations.
Approximately, 70% of the dust in the air is created by plying vehicles on the road. Removing this ‘nonpoint source’ pollution, along with the traditional larger debris, has become the newest challenge to sweeping technology. Contaminated air leads to breathing disorders
Fugro EMU Limited has extensive experience in working closely with public sector organisations concerned with the marine and coastal environment. A number of projects have been carried out on behalf of marine regulatory organisations and government departments, including specialised geophysical and ecological surveys, technical reports and provision of expert advice. This work covers a range of topics, including but not limited to:
Dragflow dredging equipments are widely used in underwater excavation and dredging activities. Dragflow pumps are design to work both in shallow seas, or fresh water areas, as well as in deep water applications. The unique design of dredging cutters allows Dragflow equipments to reach an exceptional solid concentration also in presence of very compact soil.
Coastal erosion is the wearing away of land or the removal of beach or dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents, wave currents, or drainage. Removing sand and other materials from beaches and dunes due to tidal storm surges and construction purposes causes massive beach erosion damages and land loss of seashores, thus destroying the natural heritage of the coast and reducing the vibrancy of the tourism industry. Uprooting vegetation from coastal areas destabilises beaches and clearing sites inland results in...
Fugro OCEANOR SEAWATCH systems have been installed in numerous countries around the world. They have an impressive operational record from the roughest seas worldwide, the Arctic and the Tropics, to the coastal zones.
Monitor meteorological, oceanographic, water quality conditions
Monitor algae blooms
Improve coastal zone management
Assist with oil spill contingency planning and forecasting
Coastal & Nearshore
For coastal and nearshore use DESMI provides the well known Ro-Boom product but in smaller sizes whilst maintaining the integrity of the larger product offerings. Alternatively, you may want to consider SPI or a lighter weight boom if there are deployment and recovery considerations or restrictions. Under these circumstances, the Troilboom AF (Air Filled) offers a light weight rapid response solution. It is manufactured as standard in bright orange polyurethane fabric offering durability and...
Oil and gas companies, whether in coastal or offshore settings, use water in various stages of production and for drinking and sanitary purposes. Process water, feed water and wastewater requires disinfection and filtration treatment prior to use, reclamination or discharge. De Nora Water Technologies has been providing water and wastewater treatment solutions to the oil and gas markets for more than 25 years.
From Spain’s national tide monitoring network to storm surge detection in Korea, sea state monitoring and erosion protection in Japan to oil spill detection in India, Miros sensors and solutions help protect coastlines, ports and critical infrastructure all around the world.
Under pressure to do more with less budget? Your lab is not alone. Across the globe, analytical labs are being asked to provide better analysis and faster reporting in an increasingly budget-conscious business environment. ATL's LIMS is just the tool your lab needs to accomplish the impossible - produce quality, accurate analysis while keeping the corporate bean-counters happy.

We can create reinforced berms which are commonly used for a variety of reasons. Common applications include: Reinforcement or creation of waterways. Reinforcement or creation of coastal berms. Flood defense perimeter (vegetated). Raising existing levee height in a flood event.
Federal and State regulatory agencies are increasingly requiring additional water quality testing and controls of the toxicity of discharges to receiving streams. Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) helps meet these pollution regulations. If organic chemicals have been identified as contributing to discharge toxicity, Calgon Carbon Corporation can work with facilities, and their engineering firms, to help meet stringent criteria associated with their NPDES permit. GAC can be employed as a cost-effective treatment for...
Tidal fluctuations and wave action can cause major damage to coastlines and off-shore construction projects. Nonwoven and specialty woven geotextiles can be used as a filter under layer beneath stone/ rock armour. Also riprap or synthetic erosion control mats are used to control erosion by disallowing the sub grade soil particles to erode. The geotextiles prevent erosion carried off by runoff water or other erosive waters, such as waves, stream flow, etc.
