A device for monitoring of buoys in Port of Aalborg

In collaboration with IoTrace, Xtellio have developed a solution for Port of Aalborg which monitor the buoys in the Limfjord as proactive operational support. The solution is a part of IoTrace smart.PORT solution to Port of Aalborg, who wish to deliver and optimize on the green agenda.

As a solution, Xtellio has developed a robust and waterproof IoT device that informs if the buoy moves, gets sailed or runs out of power. The devices are installed in the buoys and are connected to the NB-IoT/LTE-M network which ensures the best possible coverage, easy setup and long battery life up to 10 years.

Through various sensors, such as position, vibration and voltage, the solution can alert to prevent costly damage. If a buoy has been detached the operating staff at Port of Aalborg can see the current position of the buoy using a GPS tracker. The staff is also alerted when the current level approaches battery replacement. This ensures that the light in the buoys stays on, without the staff manually having to keep an eye on this. This will result in fewer sailings on the buoys in the Limfjord, and if it happens helps with e.g. claims.
