An inspection of the condition of the Simrad WBAT – Wideband Autonomous Transceiver was carried out on 1 June. We will shortly be retrieving the WBAT and look forward to working with the results!! The Simrad WBAT – Wideband Autonomous Transceiver was installed on May 2 in the HarshLab laboratory of TECNALIA Research & Innovation, located
On May 2, the installation of a Simrad WBAT – Wideband Autonomous Transceiver in the HarshLab laboratory of TECNALIA Research & Innovation, located in the BiMEP Biscay Marine Energy Platform, was successfully carried out by a team of AZTI in collaboration with the Materials for Extreme Conditions group of Tecnalia. The Simrad WBAT is a programmable, fully integrated
Students from Biotropical IMS Master from CSIC, Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelavo, have tested the prototype and participated in the co-creation of a card game on wave energy, which AZTI is developing in the context of the SAFEWAVE Project. Thanks to Biotropical IMS for the great contributions!
Thank you to the Marine Technology Centre CTN for the opportunity to talk about the SafeWave project at the I Underwater Noise Management Summit. Last Tuesday, Juan Bald, Head of Marine and Coastal Environmental Management Unit in AZTI and coordinator of the SafeWave project, was invited to present the challenges and lessons learned from the project at the first Summit
On the 13th and 14th of July, a ROV inspection of the mooring lines and moorings of the Penguin device of WELLO OY in BiMEP was carried out by AZTI. This inspection is part of the monitoring campaigns scheduled in the SAFEWAVE project. In this particular case, the aim of this inspection is to assess the
SafeWAVE coordinator Juan Bald, AZTI participated on the 22th of June in the workshop “Technological challenges for monitoring and reducing the impact of Underwater Noise“. The event was organized by CETMAR and PROTECMA in the framework of the SILENCIO project, where SafeWAVE and WESE projects were presented.
On the 26th of April 2022, AZTI’s sampling team successfully carried out the recovery of three SoundTrap ST300 HF hydrophones (manufactured by Ocean InstrumentsNZ)! The hydrophones have been acquiring underwater noise data since 16 March, i.e. 42 days of recording. The sampling rate was set to 10 minutes every hour, with a sampling rate of
