Aanderaa instrumentation has offered high quality information to improve the safety of the offshore operations for more than 40 years

Environmental Monitoring Systems

Aanderaa is a leading player in the collection and transmission of environmental information.  Accurate measurements improve environmental impact assessment and the preparation of contingency plans, operational models and forecasts, wherever offshore activities are conducted.  Our user defined Met-Ocean instrument platforms offer a smart and flexible observation system without the huge cost of a custom solution.

Aanderaa systems for offshore includes SEAGUARD®, RDCP, oil boom Doppler log, weather stations, wave and tide stations and buoy systems. Data from our equipment can be displayed over AIS, internet or to be integrated into other systems.
