OCEAN BUSINESS 2017 PREVIEW


ASV GLOBAL HAS ANNOUNCED IT WILL BE DEMONSTRATING ITS C-WORKER 5 AUTONOMOUS SURFACE VEHICLE (ASV) AT THE OCEAN BUSINESS EXHIBITION IN SOUTHAMPTON, 4-6 APRIL 2017


Designed, built, and operated by ASV Global, C-Worker 5 is the ideal platform to support construction and survey operations in combination with cutting-edge hydrographic, positioning and communication systems from leading manufacturers such as Kongsberg Maritime. The 5.5m ASV is designed for up to 7 days endurance at survey speeds of up to 7 knots, minimising launch and recovery operations and increasing survey efficiency.


C-Worker 5 will be hosting a variety of Kongsberg Maritime systems during the demonstration, including EM2040P, Seapath 130, MicroPAP and Maritime Broadband Radio. Underwater positioning will be provided by Kongsberg Maritime’s cNODE transponders. This selection of sensors will show C-Worker 5’s capabilities as a survey and subsea positioning platform and enable visitors to see the ASView® control system in action.


C-Worker 5 has a proven track record of reducing the cost of survey work, having carried out data collection in conditions up to sea state 5. In 2016, survey company TerraSond used the C-Worker 5 alongside their survey vessel to run a major hydrographic survey in the Bering Sea region of Alaska. The C-Worker 5 collected 2,275 nautical line miles of side scan and multibeam data – 44% of the project total. Using the C-Worker 5 resulted in an on-site time saving of


almost 25 days.


Ocean Business visitors will be able to see the vehicle and sensors operating throughout the show. Visit the ASV Global stand (U4) to book your personal demonstration, email: sales@asvglobal.com to pre-book in advance. Kongsberg Maritime will also run demonstrations on its Ocean Business stand (P2), focusing on the live data collected from the Kongsberg systems aboard the C-Worker 5.


NOC HOSTS EXCITING SERIES OF WORKSHOPS AT OCEAN BUSINESS 2017


The National Oceanography Centre (NOC) will be delivering a programme of workshops at Ocean Business 2017. The workshops will address a variety of issues facing the ocean technology community, both currently and in the future.


On the first day of Ocean Business (Tuesday 4 April), Prof Matt Mowlem, head of the NOC’s Ocean Technology and Engineering Group, will present the NOC’s sensor and instrumentation technologies that have just become available commercially. Further workshops include: business opportunities to network and work with the newly created South Marine Cluster; meetings with innovative companies operating in ocean observation to identify barriers to commercialisation, as part of the fixO3


Horizon 2020 project (fixed point Open Ocean Observatory network) and a presentation about the collaborative development of a shore-based marine radar system which provides crucial hydrographic data, information on wildlife activity and acts as a vessel traffic tool.


A major highlight of the programme is the NOC’s executive director, Professor Ed Hill, whose presentation focuses on the strategic priorities of the Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO) that advance efficiency in monitoring the world’s oceans (Wednesday 5 April). Also on the second day, the NOC is conducting a seminar about the support they have provided on the decommissioning of the 475 offshore oil and gas installations in the UK. Other highlights include a technological update about the


NOC’s development of pressure tolerant lithium sulphur batteries.


Industry Applications Using Marine Data


The potential use of arctic shipping lanes will be an interesting subject for discussion on the final day of the show (Thursday 6 April), as well as a seminar with NOC’s data modelling experts explaining how to translate marine data into industry applications. All these workshops will be free to attend and visitors simply need to register by sending an email. The NOC will also open its doors for tours of the key testing facilities that are available for commercial hire.
