After Japan's 50 nuclear reactors closed following the Fukushima disaster, wind is seen as an important alternative energy source. In a crowded and mountainous country the search for sites must go offshore, with floating turbines being the main option in the deep waters off the rugged coastline. Sure-footed anchorage to the seabed is vital in such a vulnerable environment and a Saab Seaeye Falcon ROV is being used to check the integrity of the 400 metres of chain to mooring points 100 metres down. »»

Tritech Hammerhead Offers Search Benefits

  01/09/2014
The Tritech SeaKing Hammerhead system is being used to locate missing persons by the Yorkshire and the Humber Police areas, UK, through their regional underwater search and marine unit.
