Overnight Delivery Secures Profiler Order - 09/08/2013

AML Oceanographic (Canada) has supplied a CTD instrument to the vessel MS Tûranor PlanetSolar for use in oceanographic research. AML was able to deliver a calibrated Minos•X CTD vertical profiler in less than 24 hours while the vessel was docked in Halifax, Canada. The fast delivery made the difference.

AML's Xchange field-swappable sensor heads mean that instruments can be configured in the field to meet the specific requirements of the application at hand. Such an approach also allows AML to expedite delivery of instrument orders by drawing tested instruments from stock and configuring them to meet application-specific requirements.

MS Tûranor PlanetSolar is the world's largest solar-powered vessel conducting oceanographic research in the Atlantic Ocean. In May 2012 the MS Tûranor PlanetSolar became the first ever solar electric vehicle to circumnavigate the globe. Now the PlanetSolar DeepWater expedition is allowing researchers from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, to conduct a campaign of physical and biological measurements along the Gulf Stream, with no carbon emissions.
