Allseas Test Their Mineral Collector in Ultra Deep Water – Video
Allseas engineers have been putting our mineral collector through its paces during successful Atlantic Ocean ultra-deepwater tests.
Critical functions and control systems were pressure-tested at extreme depths. Deployed from their mineral collection vessel, Hidden Gem, the collector covered more than 1km at 2500m water depth, where the pressure is approximately 250 times greater than at sea level!
Allseas, are all about pushing boundaries. Now they are taking their pilot collection system to the next level. The collector is about to go where no collector has been before. Up to a depth of 5000m on the Pacific Ocean floor. That’s 500 times the pressure at sea level!
Together with their strategic partner, The Metals Company (TMC), Allseas are developing the framework of an entire seafloor-to-shore supply chain, while tackling the complex problem of environmental protection and technology readiness.
Allseas dare to pioneer the technology that enables future and emerging industries. As the world faces a myriad of challenges in transitioning to clean energy, seafloor polymetallic nodules will help meet massive new demand for vehicle batteries and renewable energy technologies.
Another great example of Allseas fulfilling its mission is to remain a frontrunner in the offshore energy market by continuously pushing technical boundaries.
