Fiftieth Falcon's Fish Farming Feedback Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More...

Ford Commercial Diving Services, who trade as 'Blast Off', are based in Tasmania and specialise in providing underwater services to the Australian fish farming industry. They pioneered in-water net cleaning techniques that allow the nets to remain in place without replacement for extended periods. Among other factors, this has contributed to larger nets being used to hold increased fish stocks.

These larger nets, some of which are up to 25 metres deep, have to be inspected at least twice a week for holes or damage and for the removal of dead fish, known as 'morts'. Historically this inspection and mort removal has been done by divers but, with over 90 nets to look after, the use of a Seaeye Falcon ROV has become a more efficient and economic alternative for these routine tasks while divers are kept busy providing the cleaning and repair services.

The deep diving submersible Alvin was built in 1964, and after numerous refits currently has a depth rating of 4500m. WHOI has announced that a new submersible will be built to replace Alvin with an operational depth of 6500m. This will allow scientific research missions to cover some ninety percent of the seafloor. The four year design and construction programme will cost US$21.6 million. Trials are expected to take place in 2008.

13 November 2004

Oil industry economist Professor Alex Kemp sounded an upbeat note yesterday at a conference in Aberdeen, forecasting increased North Sea activity supported by continuing high oil prices.

Prof Kemp said the present very high prices would encourage a modest but worthwhile increase in exploration.

And although prices would not hold the current levels of 40-50 a barrel, they would remain above 30 for the foreseeable future, he said.

He was speaking at a gathering to mark the recent start of gas production from Goldeneye.

The Princess Royal was guest of honour at the event, held at the energy giant's St Fergus gas plant.

Mr Botts said: "Goldeneye is a good example of what the future holds in store as we go after smaller and technically more difficult volumes in the North Sea. It will require more creativity than ever before.

ROV NEWSPearl Harbor, Hawaii, November 9, 2004 – Beginning November 1, 2004, archeologists from the Submerged Resources Center of the U.S. National Park Service are conducting a three-week investigation of the wreck of USS ARIZONA, the American battleship sunk in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in 1941. Using nondestructive techniques, the team will conduct tests to determine the structural integrity of the ship, record in detail its current state for comparison with earlier surveys, and collect environmental data in the interior of the ship using VideoRay remotely-operated vehicles (ROVs). Because the ship is considered a war grave, divers will not enter the interior spaces of the vessel.  Read More...
