Marine Advisory

Published July 29, 2020

On Friday July 31, 2020 FORCE is deploying the FAST-1 subsea sensor platform in Grand Passage for approximately 35 days. The Kipawo – a 65 x 18 steel self-propelled barge operated by Huntley’s Sub- Aqua Construction – will be used for the deployment.

The purpose of this work is to accumulate high-precision turbulence data while also collecting data on the speed of the water current. FORCE and Dalhousie University will be working together to analyze the resulting turbulence data.

If you have questions about this work, you can reach Sandra Currie from FORCE at or 902-254-2510.
