62 st / August 2017 FOCUS 2 ROTV for Cable Route Survey A MacArtney FOCUS 2 ROTV sys- tem will be applied in a cable route survey to deliver high-resolution data for route design and engineering, as well as subsea asset inspections apply- ing the extensive sensor package. This is part of a project to construct the world's longest interconnector, consisting of approximately 720 km of high-voltage direct current (HVDC) ca- ble to link the power grids of the U.K. and Norway. The giant interconnector, designated NSL (North Sea Link), will link their electricity transmission sys- tems via a subsea cable that links to a converter station and an electricity substation in each country. EdgeTech 6205 MPES for Hydrography, Ocean Mapping EdgeTech provided a 6205 MPES system to the University of New Hampshire's Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping/Joint Hydrographic Center (CCOM/JHC). The EdgeTech 6205 multiphase echosounder (MPES) produces real-time, high-resolution 3D maps of the seafloor while provid- ing co-registered simultaneous dual- frequency side scan imagery. CCOM/JHC has a close affiliation with NOAA and will utilize the Ed- geTech 6205 for research and educa- tion dedicated to missions of hydro- graphic science and ocean mapping. GE Marine Tech for Deepwater Dive Support Vessel GE's Marine Solutions has been chosen by Shanghai Salvage Bureau (SSB) to provide a suite of marine tech- nologies including power and propul- sion equipment, dynamic positioning (DP) and automation and control sys- tems to its newest deepwater dive sup- port vessel (DSV). The vessel will be- come the world's first deepwater DSV with a multisaturation diving system. It will enable diving operations at depths of up to 500 m and salvage work at 6,000 m. The vessel will feature GE's SeaSt- ream DP system (Class 3) and will be powered by an electric power and pro- pulsion system, including GE's 4,656- kW generators, switchboards and medium-voltage frequency drive pro- pulsion controllers, as well as a vessel automation and control system. Cybersecurity Guidelines Updated for Ships The second edition of The Guide- lines on Cyber Security Onboard Ships has been released at http://bit. ly/2tmwGZ3. It includes information on insurance issues and how to ef- fectively segregate networks, as well as new practical advice on managing the ship-to-shore interface and how to handle cybersecurity during port calls and when communicating with the shore side. The guidelines are aligned with the recommendations given in the Interna- tional Maritime Organization's (IMO) Guidelines on cyber risk management, which were adopted in June 2017. Open-Water Trials to Begin For Lithium-Sulphur Battery Steatite has been leading a consor- tium to develop a lithium-sulphur bat- marineelectronics Compass Publications, Inc.
