In site survey design, wind, wave height and current velocity is calculated. In addition, conditions like icing, mapping of seabed and tidal levels are documented. We have also developed methods for processing measured current data, which can provide a more accurate current description and reduce mooring equipment costs.
Site survey report
The findings from a site survey are summarized and presented in a site survey report. The report forms the basis for mooring analysis, which in turn determines the design of the fish farm. The site survey report is hence the foundation of a proper designed fish farm. Aquastructures performs numerical calculations of both wind-generated waves and ocean swells. We also perform a thorough control to reveal possible incorrect readings of the current measurements.
Calculation of ocean swell
Assessment of the influence of ocean swell has to be conducted for each site, according to NS 9415. In such cases, the impact of ocean swell must be determined based on numerical calculations, wave measurements or other methods. Using our in-house developed software AquaSwan, we perform detailed calculation of wind waves and swell combinations.
