MacArtney Delivers Sea-Bird WQMs to Danish Hydraulic Institute

MacArtney has supplied a series of water quality monitor (WQM) instruments from Sea-Bird Scientific for monitoring and modelling project in the Kiel Canal, Northern Germany.

The Kiel Canal is an artificial waterway linking the North Sea with the Baltic.

Having been enlarged twice already, the Kiel Canal is now subject to a further enlargement which involves a monitoring and modelling project headed by the Danish Hydraulic Institute – Water and Environment (DHI) having ordered the WQMs.

WQMs are designed to deliver core biogeochemical water quality parameters in coastal ecosystems. The WQMs incorporate Sea-Bird Scientific’s fluorometer-turbidity and CTD sensors, providing temperature, salinity, depth, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll fluorescence, turbidity and backscattering data.

The WQM sensors have the accuracy and precision to track subtle long-term changes in even the cleanest marine systems. By combining multiple active and passive anti-fouling features, the WQM assures this data quality in coastal and inshore regimes.

“This is definitely a token of a long-standing working relationship between the orderer, DHI, the manufacturer, Sea-Bird Scientific, and MacArtney to join forces and combine our strengths with a view to providing the ultimate monitoring solution,” states Hans-Jørgen Hansen, MacArtney VP of sales & marketing.
