The marine physical observation for Kinmen seawater desalination plant piping engineering

An marine physical observation project is carried out for the design of the construction of Kinmen Desalination Plant. Measurements of waves, tides, tidal current profiles and sea temperature are implemented by using bottom mount instruments in the area of water depth of 10 m, where the suction and discharge pipes will be located. The measurements are carried out hourly for the duration of 15 days each season. Statistical analyses of the data are made to provide corresponding information as the reference for engineering design and constructions
