This significant 10 year milestone is a testament to the durability and redundancy that is inherent in the OceanWorks VENUS Nodes and SIIMs.

In an unprecedented occasion, Ocean Network Canada’s VENUS coastal observatory in the Salish Sea, designed and delivered by OceanWorks International, will celebrate 10 years of continuous operation in early February 2016.

Supporting international marine science, Ocean Networks Canada’s VENUS coastal observatory is designed to operate for 20 years as a permanent infrastructure on the seafloor. The VENUS observatory has 40 kilometers of cable with dozens of ocean sensors that are connected to OceanWorks designed Science Instrument Interface Modules (SIIM) and OceanWorks central Nodes. This significant 10 year milestone is a testament to the durability and redundancy that is inherent in the OceanWorks VENUS Nodes and SIIMs.

OceanWorks congratulates Ocean Networks Canada and looks forward to providing support and upgrades to VENUS into the future. Ocean Networks Canada operates the world-leading NEPTUNE and VENUS cabled observatories in the northeast Pacific Ocean and the Salish Sea, and a community-based observatory in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut.
