USA: EdgeTech Designs Portable Acoustic Deck Box

EdgeTech, a leader in underwater technology, has designed a new portable acoustic deck box.

The Portable Acoustic Command System (PACS) is a highly versatile deck unit that can be used to obtain status information, enable, disable, range-to and release EdgeTech’s low frequency (LF) or medium frequency (MF) acoustic releases and transponders. Capable of working with all EdgeTech, ORE Offshore and EG&G acoustic releases, PACS provides an easy-to-use interface and the flexibility to work with acoustic frequencies from 9kHz to 25kHz depending on the subsea acoustic release equipment operated by the customer. The splash proof unit operates on internal lithium ion rechargeable batteries and is back-lit enabling successful operations in all types of conditions.

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
