Miros AS has announced it has signed an agreement with Prysmian Group, a global provider in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, for the installation of their IoT dry-sensor WaveSystem including Miros Cloud Services, delivering real-time wave and current data onboard the MV Leonardo Da Vinci. Miros AS thus extends its relationship with Prysmian fleetwide, providing real-time ocean insights essential for operational requirements.

“Miros is delighted to build upon our existing relationship with Prysmian Group, bringing the MV Leonard Da Vinci into line with systems installed on both the MV Normand Pacific and MV Cable Enterprise,” says Andrew Wallace, Vice President for Offshore Solutions at Miros AS. “A key area in our discussions with Prysmian was the ease and availability of real-time data accessible through our cloud-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) Miros.app. We believe the ability for Prysmian to access and share real-time wave and current data across departments is an important aspect for both onshore and vessel-based personnel and key to their digital journey.”

“We are very pleased with Miros WaveSystem providing us with wave, current and speed through water data with high accuracy operating independently of offshore weather conditions. The automatically calibrating cloud-enabled technology allows us to work safe, precise and highly effective fleetwide and at all times,” says Hakan Ozmen, EVP Projects Business & CEO Prysmian Powerlink.

The Miros WaveSystem is comprised of the Miros Wavex, a virtual sensor designed for wave and current measurements using data from standard marine X-band radars, and the motion-compensated Miros RangeFinder, a high-frequency vertical microwave radar providing sea level and draught measurements. Miros’ IoT sensors are stand-alone devices with embedded processing and a browser-based user interface, meaning no integration or external processing is required. The devices can be complemented with various value-adding cloud services from Miros, such as weather sensors integration, web displays, data download, data push and device management services.
