Acoustic Buoys Incorporate EOM Stretch Hose Technology

A new Oceanus article discusses a mooring that utilizes EOM Offshore’s Stretch Hose Technology to detect endangered whales in the busy shipping lanes of New York Harbor.

Sounds from humpback, fin, sei, and endangered North Atlantic right whales have been detected in New York waters by an ocean mooring developed at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The DMON (Digital acoustic MONitoring) buoy relays the signals via satellite in near-real time to scientists and citizens. (Illustration by Eric Taylor, WHOI Graphic Services)

To learn more about the technology, check out a recent article published in Wave and Tidal Energy Network on Electromechanical Mooring Stretch Hoses  and head over to EOM Offshore’s website for information on their mooring components.
