EMO Marine Installs Mini-T to Collect Oceanographic Data at FORCE

EMO Marine Technologies, based in Nova Scotia, has installed a Mini-T Video/Data Mux system for FORCE (Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy).  

The system is deployed within the tidal berth sites in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia.

The system utilizes EMO Marine Technologies’ form factor multiplexer (MUX) system the Mini-T. The Mini-T establishes a real time link via fiber optic cable to the Visitor’s Centre at FORCE to transmit and output data from the sensors that are affixed to the FAST-1 platform that is positioned on the seafloor of the Minas Passage.

The link provided by EMO Marine will transmit reliable site data to aid with in-stream tidal energy development and measure effects on the marine ecosystem, the company explained.

The Mini-T system is comprised of a subsea housing where each of the oceanographic sensors are connected and an output console located in the FORCE Visitor’s Centre. The sensors are being used to measure aspects like water depth, temperature, and current data.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
