ROVs Hercules and Argus were recently deployed to bring recover one of their own! After a year on the seafloor, Wally the benthic crawler was recovered by our team at 890m/2900ft in the Barkley Canyon methane hydrate fields, deep off the west coast of Vancouver Island. This roaming rover is controlled via the internet by Ocean Networks Canada's research partners at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany, and will be taking some time off for annual maintenance. This recovery was part of our June 2017 expedition in Pacific Ocean exploring Canadian waters with Ocean Networks Canada (ONC). ONC operates world-leading cabled ocean observatories that supply continuous power and Internet connectivity to a broad suite of subsea instruments.

In June 2017, E/V Nautilus launched its third season in the Pacific Ocean exploring Canadian waters with Ocean Networks Canada (ONC). ONC operates world-leading cabled ocean observatories that supply continuous power and Internet connectivity to a broad suite of subsea instruments. The ONC NEPTUNE observatory installation, off Vancouver Island’s west coast, allow scientists to operate instruments remotely and receive data at their home laboratories anywhere on the globe in real time. This expedition launched numerous dives with ROV Hercules and ROV Argus to the Clayoquot Slope site of the NEPTUNE cabled observatory, to install and test new sensors including an accelerometer for earthquake early warning detection. -------------------------------------- E/V Nautilus is exploring unknown re...
This video captures the opening of the new AkzoNobel Laboratory of Corrosion Protection at The University of Manchester, which took place in December 2012. Several prominent AkzoNobel employees discuss the importance of preventing corrosion and give unique insights about the school. Find out more at: http://bit.ly/106tN9G
The failure of an offshore wind turbine or pipeline could be catastrophic on many levels. TWI is studying why these systems might fail and working on finding new technologies to ensure the smooth operation and long-term safety of these and other high-integrity structures. Reporter Robin Ross has been to see how. To find out more please visit: http://www.twi-global.com/
Multifunctional complexes and sustainable resorts located out on the Sea and networked with their Cities We have devised systems that will serve as urban landmarks. They will work as recycling water plants, renewable energy power plants (solar, wind, tidal, bio-gas and geothermal), marine biology laboratories, and as inhabitable sculptures! The pride of their citizens. When thinking about the way societies and cities would grow in the future, the exploitation of resources and contamination of land, air and water will be the major factors determining if they could develop organized, responsible and positive or chaotic destructive and threatened. The greatest problems could be first mitigated and then solved by restructuring the way cities work: 1. The centralized provision of basic ...
The JOIDES Resolution is scheduled to return to IODP drilling activities in March 2009 after an extensive overhaul of its laboratories and other shipboard facilities. The riserless vessels first investigations will proceed with the Pacific Equatorial Age Transect, IODP Exp. 320; and Pacific Equatorial Age Transect/Juan de Fuca, IODP Exp. 321. The USIO (U.S. Implementing Organization) comprised of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership; Texas A&M University; and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, is responsible for managing the JOIDES Resolution. The National Science Foundation contributes the JOIDES Resolution, a riserless platform, to IODP operations.
Learn why sulfate removal is useful in this video from the OTC 2015, as discussed by Matt Boczkowski from GE Oil & Gas. Sulfate removal can reduce scaling, reduce hardness and minmize souring and H2S. Explore how the GE SWSR Nanofiltration Membrane can be used in the successful removal of sulfate, magnesium and calcium. Third layer allowing the cleaning not to be so harsh.
The VENUS undersea laboratory, off the coast of British Columbia, consists of an array of scientific monitoring instruments on the ocean floor, connected to onshore research laboratories by optical-fibre cable, and to the rest of the world through the Internet. This network allows a wide variety of oceanographic data to be captured continuously and made available in real time, thereby providing data for the study of how changing environmental conditions are affecting marine ecosystems. http://nature.ca
I work in an oil field shop and this is a blow out preventer..testing the shear blinds on it!
Architect, Member of the Institut de France Visionary architect, passionate about the sea. For more than 30 years based research and the structures on bionic architecture inspired by marine biological forms, a concern for sustainable development, drawing attention to the beauty and fragility of the sea and its fundamental role in the great story of humanity. Builds underwater habitats, laboratories, marine research centres, vessels with see-through hulls, sub-aquatic museums. Designs underwater villages and dwellings, combining his two passions of the sea and architecture. Like an underwater explorer, he has tested his creations and has lived several times in subsea habitats, famously participating in the world record achievement of 71 days under the sea in the United States. _________...

Over the past decade, Power over Ethernet (PoE) has become a viable option for a wide range of applications. General Cable’s new PoE video examines the increasing power demand by PoE devices, the problem of temperature rise and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) LP certification along with our GenSPEED® Brand cable products featuring EfficienC™ Max technology and the LP rating.
We were delighted with the results from our independently fire tested wall panel with Exova Warrington in the UK. The Firevault panel showed fantastic results proving the highest safety standards are maintained on all our Firevault units. The wall panel was exposed to 1000 degrees and evidently maintained its structural integrity. You can see the intense heat that the panel has been exposed to on one side and how unaffected the opposite side the Fire Rated panel remained.
