BlueHawk™ – “Keep the seas blue”


The BlueHawk sensor is aimed for detection of oil films on water and ground surfaces in continuous unattended mode. It registers the specific fluorescence of oil caused by its exposure to certain ultraviolet light emission. Due to that the sensor is selectively sensitive to various oil products while not reacting to most other materials that may appear in the observation area. When the oil is detected the system generates ALARM delivered to the control terminal station according to installation structure. Sensing, processing and alarming are done in real-time.

The sensor is assembled in a weatherproof housing complying with IP68 standard and includes electronics and communication means providing all-sufficient operations as a stand-alone or network unit. It is designed for continuous unattended operation in the risk areas for oil leak in the water or on the ground, including industrial plants, oil storage terminals, waterways, harbors, and other sites of environmental concern.
