LoVe Ocean Observatory in for maintenance

The LoVe Ocen Observatory, for environmental monitoring, was maintained and redeployed as planned.
The one year maintenance was performed during Q3. The recovery of deployed equipment was done by use of vessel m/s Birkeland end during the last days of June and then shipped to our skilled service department in Bergen.
The onshore maintenance job included disassembly, inspection, full overhaul of all mechanics including refurbishing, testing and FAT. All of above was done inhouse at METAS facilities in Bergen.
