OceanWorks International Receives 2nd Seafloor Network Node Pod from CSnet for Refurbishment and Upgrade


A second Node Pod recently arrived at OceanWorks International to be refurbished and upgraded to the latest standard showcasing OceanWorks continued support of the ongoing operation and maintenance of CSnet International’s Offshore Communications Backbone (OCB) system. The delivery of this Node Pod follows the successful upgrade and refurbishment of the first Node Pod which is scheduled to be delivered to CSnet in July 2015.

OceanWorks delivered CSnet’s OCB subsea infrastructure, including five seafloor nodes which form the existing seafloor observatory portion of the system. The ongoing upgrade and serviceability of the Seafloor Network Infrastructure displays the ease of upgradability designed into the system and the ability to support the required 25 year lifespan of the cabled observatory.

OceanWorks International is a recognized subsea solution engineering company, providing over 20 years of service to the Scientific & Environmental, Oil & Gas, 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.
