Pelagic Research Services stays on ONC task

first_imgPelagic Research Services (PRS) will again provide ROV services for Ocean Networks Canada (ONC). It will be part of the team aiding to continued work on ocean observatories for September 2020. Pelagic Research Services has just returned from a 16-day expedition supporting Ocean Networks Canada for the continuing “Wiring the Abyss” project. Equipped to perform heavy lift and fine scale manipulation of scientific instruments and sensors, PRS will also be providing subsea navigation services on this project, for both ROV tracking and precise instrument placement and recovery. With some days lost to weather, PRS had 11.5 available days to dive, completing 12 dives, with an average 11 hours off deck. “The work of ONC is vital to increasing both Canada’s and the world’s understanding of our ocean systems. PRS CEO and co-founder Edward Cassano, said: “ONC trusts PRS ability to achieve expedition objectives, which is demonstrated by our continued selection for this work.” All operational objectives completed other than those delayed due to weather.center_img PRS’ deep sea ROV system Odysseus is to mobilise on the Canadian Coast Guard ship John P. Tully for a 14-day expedition. Water depths for this project will include high-current, low-visibility environments off the Fraser River, as well as extensive operations at greater than 2200 metres in the hydrothermal vent fields. Using an integrated iXblue Inertial Navigation System coupled with a Nortek Doppler Velocity Log, PRS was able to achieve outstanding navigation results in the challenging marine environment of the Endeavour Hydrothermal Vents. This included deployment and recovery of multiple packages weighing over 2,000 pounds with complex instruments, while making dozens of connections at the Neptune observatory site. “The ROV system and team always work very well with the ONC team. The latest expedition in June resulted in little down time for maintenance and the new system upgrades to the vehicle were major operational time savers”, says Ian Kulin, director Marine Operations, ONC Working with the ship’s crew as well as the ONC team to ensure and maintain efficiency, PRS was able to deploy for 12-hour per day operations over the course of the 16-day operation, predominantly focused on deep sea.
