OceanWorks Completes Refurbishment of 3rd Node Pod for CSnet
OceanWorks International has delivered a third fully refurbished and upgraded Node Pod to CSnet International.
It is the 3rd of five Node Pods’ to be completed by OceanWorks International for CSnet’s planned maintenance cycle of the seafloor observatory portion of the Offshore Communication Backbone (OCB) subsea infrastructure.
The maintenance takes place five years into the systems’ 25-year lifespan.
CSnet’s OCB subsea infrastructure in the Eastern Mediterranean provides science, government and industry with real time data from sensor installations covering several hundred kilometers.
The structure includes five seafloor nodes, deployed at water depths ranging from 1560 to 2280 meters, and originally designed by OceanWorks International in 2010.
