OceanWorks Delivers OCB Nodes to CapRock

Monday, January 30, 2012

OceanWorks Contracted by Harris CapRock Communications for the Delivery of Two High Power Nodes as an Expansion to the Successful OCB Project.

 

OceanWorks International is pleased to announce the delivery of two (2) high power nodes to Harris CapRock Communications (HCC) as part of the Offshore Communications Backbone (OCB) system. The high power nodes represent an expansion of the successful OCB system which also includes the CSnet Tsunami Warning and Early Response Cyprus (TWERC) system off the southern coast of Cyprus.

 

The OCB subsea infrastructure, including five seafloor nodes which form the seafloor observatory portion of the TWERC system, was originally designed by OceanWorks under direction by Harris CapRock Communication (HCC). The TWERC system was deployed in the fall of 2010 and is now providing scientists with real time data from Mediterranean monitoring stations, covering several hundred kilometers of seafloor.

 

Building on the success of the TWERC system OceanWorks was contracted by HCC to provide two high power nodes which provide additional capability to the existing OCB system. The nodes represent the first major expansion of the OCB system and further highlight the flexibility and capability of the OCB network.

 

“We chose to work with OceanWorks on this project as they have proven, dependable experience in the design and fabrication of seafloor networking products for critical applications. Their experience on the Canadian VENUS and NEPTUNE seafloor networks proved invaluable in assuring the successful deployment of TWERC”, said Mr. Rick Simonian, President of Maritime Solutions at Harris CapRock Communications.

 

“OceanWorks is extremely happy to be involved in the TWERC project as it provides both the opportunity for scientific advancement by research, and the ability to potentially save thousands of lives in the event of a major disaster” said Rod Stanley, Chief Executive Officer of OceanWorks International. “The fact that our technology and our expertise have again been chosen by a world-leading organization like Harris CapRock Communications to provide critical seafloor node technology speaks to the dominant position OceanWorks maintains in this specialized market.”
