Potash Terminal Tide and Meteorological Station

Near-real time access to physical environmental observations such as local wind and sea levels are some of the basic requirements of a modern 'Smart Port' operation. Along with accurate site forecasts, these observations are essential in promoting the operational efficiency, safety and situational awareness of vessel movements within a harbour and its approaches. In this context, Amec Foster Wheeler, in partnership with the Marine Institute of Memorial University Center for Applied Ocean Technology, has developed this wind and water level monitoring station (tide gauge) to satisfying the Port of Saint John objectives for a water level and wind monitoring station for Courtenay Bay. The station is capable of measuring and reporting accurate data and is reported live via the SmartAtlantic ocean observation system website. This station consists of a Yaleport TideMaster water level recorder with Yaleport VRS20 radar (water) level sensor and a Gill WindSonic anemometer to measure wind speed and direction.
