oil in the fuel tanks and in trapped compartments was seen as a major pollution hazard. Both the bow and stern sections contained fuel tanks that required emptying, so the Thorco Cloud’s owner, Marship GmbH, supported by the P&I insurance company Standard Club, contracted Jaya Salvage Indonesia early last year. Bumi Subsea provided remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and the dynamically positioned Surf Allamanda, owned by Bourbon Offshore. This served as the work platform during the salvage of the trapped fuel by using the Moskito hot tap tool developed in Norway by Miko Marine. Thousands

Roadmap for Renewable Energy

Asian Renewable Energy Hub entails the construction of 1,200 300m-high onshore wind turbines, with a further 2400MW from solar panels – all of which will be exported via high voltage undersea transmission cables to Jakarta and Singapore. The project will generate power for 7 million homes in Indonesia, and will offset almost 1 billion tons of carbon emissions over its lifetime. Careful Construction However, due to the speed of technological development, there is ever-changing technology risk to consider – as well as the environmental impact of construction and implementation.

Using a new method to distinguish fresh water from oil or salt water, scientists are exploring beneath the continental shelf off New England to look for large pockets of trapped fresh water. This water may be continually filling from groundwater flowing from land or, alternatively, may have been left behind by ice-age glaciers. (Image: Eric S. Taylor, WHOI Graphic Services)

Fresh Water below the Seafloor?

But if they are connected to terrestrial aquifers, they could represent renewable sources of fresh water.”   A focus on New England Pools of subsea fresh water and brackish water (fresh water mixed with salt) have shown up thousands of miles from New England in places such as Tanzania and Indonesia, and as nearby as New Jersey, where an artesian freshwater spring sprang out of a borehole 60 miles offshore during scientific drilling in the 1970s.   But only in recent years have scientists begun to focus on New England.
