An Autonomous, Non-Contact Sensor for Water Monitoring
Installations around the world. Applications across industries.
Taking the Industry Forward.
At the cutting-edge of fluorescence based optics, LDI's ROW instrument is the fast, value-added solution for detecting oil spills for water monitoring. We maintain close co-operation with research institutes and industrial companies from Estonia, across Europe to North America.

As a realtime oil detector, the ROW can mitigate CO2 emissions by reducing oil spill impact
LDI will exhibit at Oceanology 2022 in London and Interspill 2022 in Amsterdam. We hope to established new contacts, customers and also meet some familiar faces.
A key cargo port in the North Baltic Sea, adopts ROW oil-spill early warning sensors.
We are focused on providing our clients with the highest
level of quality and excellent customer support.
1. Can ROW be mounted on a buoy or an UAV?
Yes, speak with us today to discuss available options buoy-based ROW. For UAV, it can and we are already working with partners on such systems. Sign up to our newsletter to receive updates for availability.
2. Is the ROW able to detect oil in all weather conditions?
Yes. For areas prone to fog, we recommend installing the ROW closer to targets to improve the effectiveness of the device as low cloud coverage scatters the signal to the device.
3. What is the area covered by the field of view?
The field of view of ROW is 0.05 – 0.4 m (Ø), focusing on this size of area allows the device to limit the averaged signal measured from the waters surface to reduce false alarms and increase sensitivity. Because oil spreads rapidly on water, in practice the area of water protected is much larger.
