The offshore environment is perhaps one of the most demanding in the world, especially where the safety of passengers and crew is dependent on the information provided to helicopters and marine vessels by meteorological systems.
It is here that the reliability and robustness of the VPF product range is particularly applicable. The construction of the sensor ensures they will still be functioning many years after competitor’s equipment has failed due to the corrosive atmosphere. Indeed, it is not unusual for VPF sensors to be in good working order after fifteen years in marine environments.
Both our VPF and SWS sensors are deployed in significant numbers on lighthouses around the United Kingdom coast and on marine platforms in the North Sea and beyond. Biral products typically used in such applications are shown below.
