OceanWorks Delivers SIIMs to Ocean Networks Canada

OceanWorks International will deliver three of its subsea instrument interface modules (SIIM) to Ocean Network Canada in 2016, the company informed.

The SIIM will be deployed to augment those already comprising a substantial portion of the Neptune cabled observatory deployed in the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of British Columbia, Canada.

This recent order for the OceanWorks designed and built SIIMs is keeping with the British Columbia Government’s aim to increase the capability of the Neptune observatory in providing the Province with earthquake early warning detection, the company said.

The Neptune observatory has over 850km of cable with hundreds of ocean sensors connected to the SIIMs.

The SIIM connects to any one of the 5 nodes on the Neptune observatory and allows instruments to be placed in the region of interest and at depths up to 3000m or greater.
