WaveFusion

WaveFusion®, our newest sensor, combines downward-looking with measurements taken further away from the turbine for real-time ocean condition end-to-end visibility.
 
WaveFusion has been developed with the needs of the offshore wind industry in mind providing all directional and non-directional wave estimates.

Key advantages

WaveFusion, Miros’ newest sensor, combines downward-looking with directional measurements taken approximately 200 m away, from the turbine to measure all waves between 1 to 30+ seconds.
 
The key advantages result from real-time directional wave measurement in all water depths which enhances the directional wave radar with the water level. This allows offshore operators to safely access wider weather windows which contribute to operational costs reduction. On top of that, the light and compact sensor eases installation. Upgrades and configurations are done remotely.

Why WaveFusion?

Businesses can ensure wider coverage of sea state insights in all-weather critical maritime operations including shallow waters. WaveFusion accurately collects data in real-time next to the structure, together with the dual-footprint pulse Doppler to measure the structure at distance. This results in a better understanding of the sea state without the impact of the structure shadow.

Combining the footprints enables new levels of data performance, reliability and redundancy with coverage of the sea state enabling insights for critical operations 24/7.

WaveFusion is offered under the “as-a-service” model, meaning hardware is under warranty for as long as you subscribe to the Miros Cloud services. This gives assurance to our clients, with maintenance and upgrades included.

Remotely monitor data from one single portal with the complimentary Miros Cloud subscription as well as upgrades to the latest software, ensuring infrastructure technology is always up to date.

All data processing is completed within the sensor, removing the need to install other servers for data processing. This reduces infrastructure costs, the number of resources needed for installation and e-waste.
 
The Miros Cloud also leads to a reduction of unnecessary offshore trips for data access as access can be achieved anywhere.

A simplified and ergonomic design enables quick installation and fast deployments. The WaveFusion comes with an easy-to-install bracket mount so it can be attached to a handrail or wall.
