EMSO ERIC is very glad to announce the successful deployment of the Hellenic Deep Sea Platform.
The platform was laid yesterday with the Cable Termination Frame at a depth of 1520 meters from the cable vessel MEUCCI and the deep Remotely Operated Vehicle of the research vessel AEGAEO.
The new platform joins the fixed water column observatory of the Pylos site – which is part of the POSEIDON buoy network – and will send data to the shore station.
Yesterday’s completion of the Pylos cable observatory marks an important step for the longevity of EMSO ERIC.
