  • A major upgrade of national marine R&D infrastructure is underway in Galway Bay

    The first phase of installation of Ireland’s first subsea cabled observatory was completed this week.  The observatory is located at the Ocean Energy Test and Demonstration Site in Galway Bay.  The test site is located 1.5km offshore in water depths of circa. 23m and is restricted to shipping.  The first phase of the installation was the deployment of the cable which extends from a shore station located at the second level school ‘Colaiste Chroí Mhuire,’ in Spiddal to an underwater frame on the test site. The cable is 4km in length and provides power and high bandwidth delivery of data to the observatory and the test site.
