Operator of World’s Largest Construction Ship Renews Deal with Peplink

VILNIUS, Lithuania, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Peplink – a company that makes connectivity reliable, and Frontier BV – a business IT specialist and a key Peplink European distributor, will be upgrading Allseas’ fleet of construction vessels, including the Pioneering Spirit.

Everyday, Peplink technologies ensure reliable network connectivity in thousands of enterprises in retail, industrial, public safety, healthcare and government organizations. Peplink’s industry leading product portfolio of 5G routers and management software are typically deployed in workplaces, shops, vehicles, yachts, large vessels, drones, and IoT systems.

FrontierBV is a connectivity expert in the maritime sector from the Netherlands. One of Frontier BV’s very first deployments was to design an unbreakable network solution for the Pioneering Spirit, Allseas’ flagship and the world’s largest construction ship with a crew of 600. FrontierBV used Peplink LTE routers and its SpeedFusion Hot Failover technology to combine LTE, VSAT, Iridium and WiFi to ensure the ship stayed online constantly at any location. Throughout all these years, Allseas remained very satisfied.

Now, Allseas has tasked Frontier BV to upgrade the ship – along with the rest of Allseas’ fleet. With the recent advances Peplink made, Frontier BV has a lot more to offer. These include a whole range of high-performance 5G routers, such as the Dome series, routers with integrated high power antennas for outdoor and maritime deployments, and the MBX series, high-performance wireless SD-WAN routers capable of combining multiple LTE/5G connections to maximize bandwidth. These are further supported by SpeedFusion Cloud and FusionSIM technologies, which make it easier than ever to deploy and manage Peplink devices anywhere. Ultimately, these Peplink equipment will be deployed in Allseas’ fleet to incorporate new technologies, such as 5G, satellite, beam, to make the ship’s network faster and more reliable.

Richard Koenders, Managing Director of Frontier BV said, “True to its namesake, trusting Peplink on its critical network needs was a pioneering move back in 2014. Peplink’s solution worked flawlessly throughout the years and this trust proved to be well placed. The renewal of this deal is the ultimate proof. Now that Peplink has grown much bigger, we are in a position to offer an even better solution.”

Keith Chau, General Manager of Peplink said, “Businesses all over the world are accelerating the adoption of mobile connectivity because of its many advantages over fixed networks. While Peplink focuses on developing great products and technologies in this space, there are plenty of opportunities for committed partners such as FrontierBV to offer our highly differentiated solutions and build lasting customer relationships. Upgrading the Pioneering Spirit is a great case in point. We invite potential partners to join us to bring unbreakable connectivity everywhere.”

The Metals Company and Allseas Announce Successful Deep-Water Test of Polymetallic Nodule Collector Vehicle in the Atlantic Ocean at a Depth of Nearly 2,500 Meters

Polymetallic nodule collector vehicle

  • Following earlier successful harbor wet-testing and shallow-water trials in the open sea, the Allseas-designed and constructed pilot nodule collector vehicle was deployed from the Hidden Gem and lowered to the seafloor at depths of 2,470 meters, marking the first time the vehicle has been subjected to ultra-deep-water temperatures and pressures
  • A range of critical functions were successfully tested while driving over one kilometer on the seafloor, confirming the robot’s capability to operate in pressure and temperature conditions similar to those it will encounter in the NORI-D Area in the CCZ
  • Upcoming trials in TMC’s NORI-D contract area are expected to include deployment of a four-kilometer-long riser, an umbilical that provides power and control during seafloor operations, and a 500-meter-long flexible jumper hose to connect the riser to the collector vehicle

NEW YORK, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TMC the metals company Inc. (Nasdaq: TMC) (“TMC” or the “Company”), an explorer of the world’s largest estimated undeveloped source of critical battery metals, today announced the successful completion of initial deep-water trials of the polymetallic nodule collector vehicle in the Atlantic Ocean.

Engineers successfully lowered the Allseas-designed collector vehicle to the seafloor at depths of 2,470 meters, marking the first time the vehicle had been subjected to ultra-deep-water temperatures and pressures. Engineers then subjected the vehicle to extensive testing of its various pumps and critical mobility functions, driving 1,018 meters across the seafloor.

Hidden Gem

“The pilot nodule collection system is so far performing beautifully throughout these trials and getting the collector vehicle into the deep water in the Atlantic has given the team the opportunity to really pressure-test critical components,” said Gerard Barron, CEO & Chairman of The Metals Company. “I continue to be astounded by the planning and preparedness of Allseas engineers who are moving right along into wet-test commissioning and trial deployment of the riser system.”

Since 2019, Allseas and TMC have been working together to develop a pilot system to responsibly collect polymetallic nodules that sit unattached on the seafloor and lift them to the surface for transportation to shore. Nodules contain high grades of nickel, manganese, copper and cobalt — key metals required for building electric vehicle batteries and renewable energy technologies.

Previously, TMC and Allseas announced successful harbor wet-test commissioning and shallow-water drive tests in the North Sea. With this latest round of deep-sea trials Allseas engineers will also test deployment of components of the riser as well as the connection between the jumper hose and the collector vehicle. All of the trials to date are in preparation for full pilot nodule collection system trials later this year over an 8 kmsection of the NORI-D contract area in the Clarion Clipperton Zone of the Pacific Ocean. The trials are an integral part of the International Seabed Authority’s regulatory and permitting process and the environmental impact data collected both during and after this nodule collection test work will form the basis of the application for an exploitation contract by TMC’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Nauru Ocean Resources Inc. (NORI).

Development of technologies to collect polymetallic nodules first began in the 1970s when oil, gas and mining majors including Shell, Rio Tinto (Kennecott) and Sumitomo successfully conducted pilot test work in the CCZ, recovering over ten thousand tons of nodules. In the decades since, the ISA was established to develop the regulatory framework to govern mineral extraction in the high seas while technology development efforts have largely focused on scaling proven nodule collection technologies and optimizing for minimal seafloor disturbance and environmental impact.
