Glosten to Design, Freire Shipyard to Build MBARI's New Research Vessel

;This new state-of-the-art research vessel will expand MBARI’s reach and enhance our research, engineering development, and outreach efforts.”For more than three decades, MBARI research has revealed the astounding diversity of life deep beneath the surface, and the institute’s technology innovations have provided priceless insights into the ocean’s geological, ecological, and biogeochemical processes. The new research ship will enable continued exploration of the deep sea, from the midnight zone — the inky depths below 1,000 meters (about 3,300 feet) — to the abyssal

Oi20: Set for London in March

. However, if the optimistic reportage of the 1960s feels a world away from the grave environmental and economic portents of today, it should be borne in mind that Oi is not only still with us, but now has more influence than ever as an industry-supporting champion of beneficial ocean science and technology innovations – and that in itself should be cause for celebration.Oi 2020, a special 50th anniversary presentation, will be held in the long-running exhibition and conference’s habitual UK venue, ExCel London, on March 17-19, 2020. Indicative of the franchise’s still snowballing global

L3 ASV to Conduct UK Autonomous Navigation Study

Agency (MCA) and United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO), focusing on the future of marine navigational data and charts. The project is funded by the Department for Transport’s Transport Technology Research Innovation Grant (T-TRIG) and aims to promote early-stage science, engineering or technology innovations with the potential to advance the U.K.’s transport system.L3 ASV’s T-TRIG project will begin by exploring the characteristics of navigational data and charts in terms of what they comprise, their structure and how they are updated.“Current navigational data and charts have

;s why OPERA is such a ground-breaking project and why Global Maritime is delighted to be involved in the mooring and risk management element. For the first time, the wave energy industry will be able to access high quality, open-sea operating data, see some of the latest mooring and other technology innovations tested offshore, and look forward to long-term cost reductions of up to 50%.”   Inside the WEC is an oscillating water column (OWC) that forces air through a turbine that in turn generates electricity. The WEC has been developed by OCEANTEC and will use a novel shared mooring
