DeepOcean Expands into Gulf of Mexico With Delta SubSea Acquisition DeepOcean acquired Delta SubSea LLC, which pro- vides inspection maintenance and repair and construc- tion services with international operations in locations such as West Africa, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana. The company owns and operates 10 Schilling-manufac- tured ROVs from its operating base in Montgomery, Tex- as. This acquisition will allow DeepOcean to expand its operations in the Mexican segment of the Gulf into the U.S. segment. Delta SubSea will also be DeepOcean's vehicle for offshore renewables projects in U.S. waters. Virgin Islands Port Authority Receives New Pilot Boat and Port Security Boat Metal Shark has delivered two new custom welded aluminum vessels to the Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA). The vessels were recently delivered to St. Thomas and transferred to VIPA. Both vessels are now operating from the Edward Wilmoth Blyden IV Marine Facility on the Charlotte Amalie waterfront, where they serve the is- land of St. Thomas and also nearby St. John. New Study Compares Mineral Oil-Based and New 'Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants' ABS, in partnership with Vickers Oil and Imperial College London, completed a study on the use of envi- ronmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) on stern tube bearings. The study evaluated EAL relative to mineral oil-based lubricants and concluded oil viscosity is the primary property in selecting an EAL. Primarily driven by 2013 U.S. EPA requirements, EALs were intended to replace mineral oil lubricants in marine vessels. Antarctic Research Will Assess Krill Biomass The U.S. Antarctic Marine Living Resources (AMLR) Program has implemented a krill research program that will utilize an array of moorings and gliders around the Antarctic Peninsula. Data collected will replace tradi- tional ship-based surveys and will provide standardized spatial and temporal data to understand the consequenc- es of overlap among krill, predators and the krill fish- ery. The gliders will be equipped with ASL acoustic zoo- plankton fish profilers (AZFP) and record backscatter of krill biomass. Piezoceramic Manufacturer Joins Canada's Marine Tech Innovation Campus in Nova Scotia Sensor Technology Ltd. is expanding into Atlantic Canada by joining the Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship (COVE), a collaborative community for the ocean technology industry.
