OceanWorks International completed the delivery of a spare node base and two node pods to Harris CapRock Communications (HCC) in support of the ongoing operation and maintenance of CSnet International's Offshore Communications Backbone (OCB) system.

The OCB subsea infrastructure, including five seafloor nodes which form the existing seafloor observatory portion of the system, was originally designed by OceanWorks International. The system, deployed in 3000m of water in the Mediterranean Sea during the fall of 2010, has been providing scientists with real time data from sensor installations covering several hundred kilometers of the seafloor. The additional node base and node pods take full advantage of the upgradability designed into the system and allows the incorporation of improvements over the 25-year lifespan of the network.

OceanWorks International is an internationally recognized subsea technology company specializing in the design and manufacture of manned/unmanned subsea systems and specialized equipment for military, oil and gas, scientific, and other marine markets. Offering a full range of subsea system engineering, design and analysis, fabrication, testing, and project management services, OceanWorks has been at the cutting edge of deep submergence and diving technology, operations, and support for over 20 years and we look forward to providing subsea engineering solutions to our customers for years to come.
