Upgrading power sources and data backups for ocean observation
Monitoring the ocean in real-time requires platforms, instruments, cables and sensors in the deep sea. This ocean observing hardware requires high voltage power inputs from shore and delivers big data outputs. All of it needs to be regularly serviced and good engineering practices keep the systems running smoothly.
Every year Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) goes to sea to maintain and upgrade the hardware deployed in the ocean. And this year, power and data backup systems on shore are being overhauled after a decade of operations.
Power systems upgrade
In July 2017, ONC’s offshore and inshore power systems...Read more
