Commissioning of Ocean Observatory in Galway Bay

Aug 18, 2015   //  

The team from Texcel Technology and Horsebridge Networks visited Galway Bay to connect and commission Ireland’s new national marine research and development infrastructure of a Cabled Ocean Observatory. Texcel Technology designed and manufactured the subsea Node and shore station systems. After system testing in the factory the Node was deployed and commissioning started. Within the first day the system was up and running with some fantastic HD images being sent back to shore in real time. The following week the team conducted commissioning testing and network management configuration. “We expect the Marine Institute of Ireland to undertake some amazing research with this infrastructure” said Peter Shawyer of Texcel.
