Météo-France selects TRIAXYS Wave Buoys for Coastal Measurement Network

AXYS Technologies (AXYS) is pleased to announce the signing of an eight-year framework agreement with Météo-France on the supply of TRIAXYS Directional Wave buoys to build a wave measurement network along the coast of France.

“Météo-France aims to build a coastal measurement network, improve coastal forecasts, and assist in the protection of property throughout France. The TRIAXYS buoy was selected because it met all of our specifications and will be a key element in achieving our goals “said Gilbert EMZIVAT – Head of the Météo-France Marine Meteorology Office.

“We are proud to have our TRIAXYS solution selected by Météo-France as part of the French National wave buoy network, and are confident it will accurately and reliably inform their forecasts and meet their measurement requirements,” said PS Reilly – President and CEO, AXYS Technologies.

The TRIAXYS accurately measures and transmits directional wave data using the TRIAXYS solid state wave sensor, which provides near real-time access to continuous wave measurements and does not require annual calibration. Satellite telemetry enables cost-effective deployments of the buoy outside of cellular and radio range.

Over the last decade, more than 300 TRIAXYS wave buoys have been deployed on various projects throughout the world. The TRIAXYS has been reliably proven to assist with safe Aid to Navigation activities, port operations, offshore construction, offshore wind farms, wave resource assessment, and National Meteorological coastal monitoring. The buoy has extensive success surviving harsh marine conditions at depths ranging from 10-300m and is easy to deploy with low maintenance costs.
