Russian Vessel Igor Belousov Receives Two Submersibles

Russian search and rescue vessel Igor Belousov, which will perform search, rescue and salvage of submarines in distress, will be equipped with two submersibles.

The vessel will receive two ARS-600 two-seat unique deepwater submersibles.

The Russian Defense Ministry made a decision in 2011 that the Scottish firm DIVEX will provide the deep-sea diving system for the vessel. The experts from a Russian company, Tetis Pro., will deliver, install and test the new technology.

Construction of Igor Belousov commenced in 2005 in St. Petersburg at Admiralty Shipyards. It is still under construction due to a series of setbacks.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
