The Port Authority of Veracruz S.A. (APIVER), began in 2015 with the construction of the New Port of Veracruz, which represents the most ambitious port expansion project in Mexico for 100 years.
The New Port of Veracruz is built in full care of its natural environment and especially the nearby coral reefs, belonging to the protected marine area Parque Nacional Sistema Arrecifal Veracruzano.
Through the company Argo Consultores Ambientales, they have monitored sediment dynamics since 2015. Current data from multiple AOS systems are exported via our JSON API and used to construct real-time stream and sediment concentration maps that represent the main management tool for preventing sediment damage to coral reefs of the PNSAV.
Interpolated map with current data from 4 AOS systems.
The AOS buoy is a robust light weight buoy specifically made for the AOS product.
