MS Tûranor Planet Solar

AML Oceanographic Ltd. (AML) supplied a CTD instrument to the vessel MS Tûranor Planet Solar for use in oceanographic research. AML was able to deliver a calibrated Minos X CTD vertical profiler in less than 24 hours while the vessel was docked in Halifax.

One of the reasons why AML was selected was for fast delivery. AML's Xchange field-swappable sensor-heads means instruments can be configured in the field to meet the specific requirements of the application at hand. Such an approach also allows AML to expedite delivery of instrument orders by drawing tested instruments from stock and configuring them to meet application-specific requirements.

AML Oceanographic (formerly Applied Microsystems) is an innovative manufacturer of Sound Velocity, CTD and Environmental sensors, probes and instruments. With more than 39 years of experience in our field, our customers are located in more than 100 countries around the world and include organizations in the fields of hydrography, science and research and environmental monitoring.

MS Tûranor Planet Solar is the world's largest solar-powered vessel conducting oceanographic research in the Atlantic Ocean. In May 2012 the MS Tûranor Planet Solar became the first ever solar electric vehicle to circumnavigate the globe. Now the Planet Solar Deep Water expedition is allowing researchers from the University of Geneva to conduct a unique campaign of physical and biological measurements along the Gulf Stream, with no carbon emissions.
