OceanWorks International contracted to deliver additional seafloor nodes for CSnet International’s Offshore Communications Backbone (OCB).

The OCB (Offshore Communications Backbone) subsea infrastructure, including five seafloor nodes which form the existing seafloor observatory portion of the system, was originally designed by OceanWorks International and delivered to Harris Caprock Communications (HCC) .

The system was deployed in 3000m of water in the Mediterranean Sea during the fall of 2010 and is now providing scientists with real time data from sensor installations covering several hundred kilometers of the seafloor. Each of the five original nodes has a recoverable pod containing electronics which can be easily serviced and upgraded throughout the system’s planned deployment life of 25 years.

“OceanWorks International has been a solid and dependable partner throughout the OCB project. Their continuous support has been a key to our success,” said David Pfosi from Harris CapRock Communications.
“We truly value our long term working relationship with Harris CapRock Communications,” said Mr. Rod Stanley, CEO of OceanWorks International.

OceanWorks International is an internationally recognized subsea technology company specializing in the design and manufacture of manned / unmanned subsea systems and specialized equipment for military, oil and gas, scientific, and other marine markets.
