The third video-guided hydraulic deep-sea grab has been in production for the Korean Institute of Ocean Science and Technology since March 2016. The grad will be equipped with a redesigned hydraulics concept, fibre-optics telemetry and real-time camera system and be deployable at water depths up to 6000 m. To mark the occasion there will be a video of the deployment on the vessel FS Sonne (SO241) in 2015, with the kind permission and provision of Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (Geomar).

Multiple Corer "MC 8-12"-Series: heavier version for deep seap

Our Multicorer family is growing. Now that the MC 4-8 series (lightweight version for small vessels) has been profiting from the new OktoMFS profile system for a whole year, the MC 8-12 series follows (heavy-duty version for deep-sea deployment). The new OktoMFS profile system allows the simple replacement of damaged components and the attachment of cameras, floodlights or sensors, for example.
