02 Aug ClearSignal selected by University of Delaware for 300-kHZ workhorse
The University of Delaware has selected Severn Marine Technology’s (Annapolis, MD) ClearSignal Biofouling Control System to coat a 300 kHZ Teledyne RD Instruments (San Diego California) workhorse Mariner. The instrument is hull mounted in the R/V Hugh R. Sharp. The Hugh R. Sharp is currently engaged in coastal oceanography missions. The ClearSignal Biofouling Control System was selected because of its proven performance to control biofouling and reduce maintenance costs. University of Delaware personnel concluded the ClearSignal coating will allow for uninterrupted collection of current data.
Mid Mountain Materials, ClearSignal co-developer and applicator of the ClearSignal biofouling control system is also the sole manufacturer and co-developer of Fire Booms used to remove oil from the Deep Water Horizon oil spill. The fire boom has to date removed over 5 million gallons of oil from the Gulf of Mexico. Skimming by contrast has removed less than half that amount. Both the fire booms and ClearSignal are products whose development has resulted from Mid Mountain Materials expertise in the design, manufacture and application of materials designed for use in the most extreme and harshest of environments. Severn Marine Technologies is proud to have Mid Mountain Materials as a strategic partner.
