Solar power system for power buoy for Lekki, Nigeria
For Orwell Offshore we have designed, engineered and produced various equipment for a new Power Buoy for the CBM System at Lekki Free Trade Zone Nigeria, which is a petroleum handling facility.
The equipment is placed in and around a specifically designed container which is placed on the power buoy and the main function is to control the valves in the transport pipes, which are located 60 meters below water. The container is equipped with the following items:
- Complete Solar Power System, powering all electrical systems onboard of the power buoy, St Andrews cross, Radar reflectors, Marine lantern, automatic Fog detector and fog horn
- Environmental data is gathered by an integrated wind sensor and current sensor built into the buoy design
- A GPS module, to be able to monitor the position of the buoy
Data from this system is transmitted to the control room and on the Portable Telemetry Unit based on UHF technology made available to the pilots.
