TEVO LOKOMO Joins Rainbowfish in Mariana Trench Project

Finnish foundry TEVO LOKOMO has joined Rainbowfish Deepsea Equipment & Technology’s project designed to explore further down into the Mariana Trench.

Rainbowfish plans to construct a deep-sea research vessel for the project.

TEVO LOKOMO will build the manned submersible cabin casting at its steel foundry in Tampere, Finland.

The cabin will be made from Vaculok maraging steel, and it will withstand the extreme pressures at the depths of over 36 000 feet (11 000 meters).

The multi-phase project will culminate in 2020 when a group of scientists will descend into the depths of the Mariana Trench, and conduct scientific research work in circumstances not touched by humans yet.

The venture aims to break the depth record set by the film director and explorer James Cameron, the company said.
