OceanWorks International has taken the delivery of node pod #3 from CSnet for the purpose of refurbishment and upgrade to the latest standard. This project demonstrates the continued cooperation between OceanWorks International and CSnet and showcases OceanWorks continued support of the ongoing operation and maintenance of CSnet International’s Offshore Communications Backbone (OCB) system.

CSnet's OCB subsea infrastructure, including five seafloor nodes which form the existing seafloor observatory portion of the system, was originally designed by OceanWorks International under direction from Harris CapRock Communications (HCC) and deployed in 3000m of water in the Mediterranean Sea during the fall of 2010. Since that time it has been providing scientists with real time data from sensor installations covering several hundred kilometers of the seafloor. The delivery of an additional node base and two node pods in 2013 and the retrieval and delivery to OceanWorks of pod #3 for upgrade and refurbishment takes full advantage of the ease of upgradability designed into the system and allows the incorporation of improvements throughout the 25 year lifespan of the network.

OceanWorks International is a recognized subsea solution engineering company, providing over 20 years of service to the Oil & Gas, Scientific & Environmental, and Military markets. The continued work on the OCB subsea infrastructure involves design, engineering, analysis, manufacturing, testing, documentation, and a close working relationship with CSnet.
