Due to the fact that the Kanholmsfjärden system is a semi-closed system that has a sill connection to the Södra Möjafjärd current measurements along that sill have to be carried out in order to monitor flows across that sill. For this an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) is used in the project. The ADCP has been widely utilized and numerous examples can be found that show that the ADCP is the best choice for current monitoring.
Weather conditions are monitored by the use of simple weather stations and visual means at the relevant locations. This will enable a better control of the demonstration units during the demonstration phase as well as it will help during the evaluation of the operation and effects of the pumps.
