The project involves the use of Smarter Technologies' Orion IoT Data Network to address the challenges faced by the port, which is home to a significant portion of the Royal Navy’s surface fleet and experiences around 130,000 significant movements annually.

The Infrastructure Asset Management team at HMNB Portsmouth has incorporated this technology to better manage the complex and historic naval base. The introduction of depth sensors in the dockyard’s basins and transit locks is a key aspect of this project. These sensors provide real-time data on water levels, allowing for more informed decisions regarding the operation of locks and pumps.

This technology has enabled the Asset Management and Waterfront teams at HMNB Portsmouth to optimize water levels and reduce unnecessary pumping operations, leading to operational efficiencies. The data from the sensors is accessible through a dashboard, facilitating immediate and evidence-based decision-making.
