CSA Launches Latest USV for Surveys (USA)

The Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) is the latest tool in CSA’s scientific equipment pool, providing the company with a unique capability for performing a wide variety of surveys in hazardous, remote, sensitive, and shallow water areas.

The USV can be preprogrammed or controlled remotely to perform survey transects, while recording and/or streaming data back to its command center. The vehicle has the payload, power, and data bandwidth to carry a variety of sensors – supporting both scientific and geophysical surveys.

“CSA has utilized USV technology in the past to collect data in areas traditional vessels could not access,” stated Kevin Peterson, CEO of CSA. “This technology allows us to reach areas and collect data in a precise, safe, and efficient manner unlike any other marine asset available today.”

In its base mode, the vehicle will be outfitted with a survey-grade echosounder, side-scan sonar, and multi-beam sonar. However, it can be reconfigured with additional sensors for survey-specific requirements.

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
