Note that these are real-time data and are not quality-controlled. Long-range graphs are plotted from a randomised subsample of half-hourly data.
|Platform location||50° 46.200' N 000° 29.500' W|
The met station was deployed on 28 May 2008. The tide gauge became operational in April 2008.
The met station and tide gauge were replaced with new equipment in September 2014.
|21/06/2018||The unscheduled telemetry works have caused a jump in the wind data. The other weather parameters should be considered unreliable. Further telemetery works to resolve the issue are scheduled to take place in the next two weeks.|
|21/02/2018||Unscheduled telemetry works|
|07/04/2017||An offset to the data has occured. The site has been relevelled and will be updated in due course.|
|21/09/2016||New instrumentation has been installed; met data are correct from pm today. The data are rather noisy and work is underway to correct this|
|18/08/2016||The platform was visited today to inspect the site and service the met station. New tide gauges will be installed in the near future.|
|02/08/2016||The platform has now been refurbished so a service of the equipment can now be carried out at the earliest opportunity.|
||At midnight last night the data stream suddenly became erratic. Once temporary repair works have been completed on the platform a service will be carried out to investigate.|
|29/06/2015||Data stream is now coming from the new pressure transducer|
|25/06/2015||Platform visited today to install new pressure transducer and mounting system and replacement solar pannel. Data stream will return to pressure transducer readings soon.|
|18/06/2015||The data feed to the website is now coming from the replacement radar sensor installed on 13/05/15 until the pressure transducer can be replaced.|
|16/06/2015||Due to continuously erroneous tide data - uploading to the website has now been stopped.|
|26/05/2015||Suspected damage to the pressure transducer/cabling is causing erroneous readings. The platform will be visited to rectify the issue as soon as possible.|
|13/05/2015||A temporary installation of a pressure transducer has been installed on the site today to provide tide readings while the radar level sensor manufacturers continue fault finding with a replacement radar also installed today.|
|21/04/2015||Data from the platform has been inconsistent over the past few days due to ongoing issues with GPRS reception in the area. The network provider has been contacted.|
|30/01/2015||Tide data is becoming spiky during periods of increased wave height. This is being looked into and addressed by the manufacturers as a matter of some urgency.|
|22/01/2015||The platform was visited today to fix data issues. Data is now being collected but not uploaded currently due to a manufacturers fault which should be rectified shortly.|
|20/09/2014||The new instrumentation has now been installed.|
|29/04/2014||The weather station has also now been removed in preperation for the installation of replacement sensors in the near future.|
|19/02/2014||The tide gauge has now been removed and is being assessed for repair. The navigation light has been re-installed.|
|11/01/2014||Site investigated regarding navigation light and system problems.|
|31/12/2013||There is a problem at the Platform but at present sea conditions are unsuitable for a service visit.|
|20/10/2011||Scheduled service. The met station has been replaced.|
|26/10/2010||There is a problem with the power/telemetry system on the Platform, which requires a site visit once sea conditions permit.|
|08/07/2010||Met data is no longer being transmitted from the Platform. The fault, which appears to be a power problem, is under investigation. Data from the tide gauge is being transmitted properly.|
|16/03/2010||Schedule service and additional clean.|
|09/06/2009||Scheduled service, cleaned platform, checked battery voltages and connected met station to Satel.|
|14/01/2009||The met station was serviced and is serviceable temporarily, although following vandalism at the site late last year, part of the instrumentation will require re-wiring.|
