Automatic Tide Station Installed in Makhachkala Seaport

Automatic station of the water surface level measurement was installed by the Makhachkala Branch as a part of the hardware-software system “Uroven-VP” in the Makhachkala Seaport waters in order to monitor water table level on a 24-hour basis.

The hardware-software system allows to measure water surface level in the Makhachkala Seaport waters to the accuracy of ±2 mm irrespective of the presence of water steam, pressure and temperature change.

The frequency of measurement transferred to the Makhachkala Port VTS through the fiber-optic link is five minutes.

The data from the Automatic Tide Station is directly used by the Makhachkala Branch during planning and surveying works in the seaport waters and is also transferred to the vessels that call at the Makhachkala Seaport to inform them about navigation situation and provide safe navigation.
