Over the past 12 months you may have spotted the new Observation Towers being installed along Western Australian beaches. The towers, which were designed, built and constructed by local Perth company Emineo Engineering Services, assist our coastal safety services to spot any dangers before they happen.
As the number of beach goers continues to increase and the accessibility of our coastline improves, methods of coastal surveillance need to align. The use of mobile patrol tents and trailers do not always give our coastal safety organisations the chance to effectively monitor areas both inside and outside the primary patrol zone.
The opportunity to improve this situation was identified in 2015 with Emineo Engineering Services taking on the challenge to develop a highly visible and mobile/semi-permanent Observation Platform.
In 2017, work commenced on validating a prototype which was designed and engineered in Western Australia by Emineo Engineering Services. Extensive testing followed before a completed Observation Platform was installed at City Beach. Since then, more than 10 platforms have been installed on Western Australian beaches.
The new elevated Observation Towers allow our coastal safety personnel to see above the umbrellas, tents and breaking waves. It also gives them a chance to monitor those who are swimming outside the flags. They create a more professional look and provide a presence on the beach that the general public can approach.
Emineo Engineering Services are proud to have produced the ONLY Coastal Observation Tower to meet ALL Australian standards. The towers have also recently been certified Australian made and are set to become a familiar fixture along our coastline.
