- Equipment for measuring parameters such as the speed and direction of the wind, temperature, air humidity, solar radiation, atmospheric pressure, precipitation, water level, water flow, suspended matter content, wave measurement, salinity, etc.
- Substation and auxiliary systems including electrical cabinets, lightning protection devices, equipment pylons / buoys, etc.).
- Collection and transmission data devices (dataloggers).
