OceanWorks International said it will provide an upgrade to the Strait of Georgia Shore Station for Ocean Networks Canada (ONC). Its scope consists of design, supply, installation and system integration testing of the upgraded system.
The new system will provide the customer with the ability to monitor and control the power system in the Shore Station with a state of the art control system. New functionality will allow remote access and include soft start capabilities to enhance the safe use of the equipment. The upgraded shore station will also now share commonality with other shore stations, creating simplicity for the ONC team.
“This shore station will provide a benefit to the system and its operators by offering increased reliability and controls equivalent to the Saanich Inlet observatory,” said Scott Williams, OW Systems Engineer. “This will allow for increased ease of use and the ability to monitor and control the system remotely.”
OceanWorks International has supported the ONC Cabled Observatories since 2006.
