  • National Institute for Environmental Studies buys second FastOcean APD for algal studies in Japanese lakes

News

Leaders in environmental consulting @PLANCTON_ANDINO (Chile) have been using a @Chelsea_CTG  Act2 #frrf3 to monitor red tides as part of the Bivalve Molluscs Health Program.

Leading environmental consultants Plancton Andino SpA (Chile) are using a CTG FastAct Laboratory FRRf System to monitor red tides as part of the Bivalve Molluscs Health Program.

Chile is the world’s fourth largest producer of mussels and the health of the mussels is of paramount importance to the economy. These “red tides” or Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are natural events occurring around the world. Since first being reported in Chile in 1972 in the Strait of Magellan these HAB have increased in both frequency and geographic coverage.

Introducing new V-Lux Fluorometer

The Our Ocean Wealth Summit, takes place in Galway, Ireland as part of SeaFest 2018  on 28/29 June. A major part of the two-day programme is the Marine Ireland Trade Show which CTG are delighted to participate in.

CTG’s Managing Director, Dr Brian Phillips and Marine Sales Manager,  Sam Kirby will be showcasing the new V-Lux: Multi-parameter fluorometer configured to detect either Aromatic Hydrocarbons, Algae or Tryptophan-like fluorescence.

Marine Tech Expo Plymouth

CTG are delighted to be exhibiting at the 2nd Marine Tech Expo @Marine_Expo this week. The event brings together decision makers involved in the latest marine innovations in blue technology under one roof at the University of Plymouth, 21-22 June 2018.

CTG's Stephanie Lavelle will be demonstrating the FastBallast, a portable ballast water compliance monitor for use with discrete or flow-through samples.  CTG's Sam Kirby will be demonstrating the Act2-based FRRf laboratory system for measuring primary productivity and assessing the health of phytoplankton communities. We look forward to seeing you.

 

CTG Pipeline Leak Detection System chosen by ECA Group, France

ECA Group, France, leading providers of advanced unmanned and autonomous systems has chosen a CTG Pipeline Leak Detection System (PLD) to be employed in the role of subsea pipeline inspection and oil leakage detection. The 600 metre, certified system contains a CTG Uvilux configured for hydrocarbons. The PLD system will be integrated into ECA’s innovative ROV, the H800-SUR alongside a hydrophone, water sampler and sediment sampler.  Lets talk more - We are sponsoring the 4th Premiam Conference "Post Spill Monitoring, Looking Back and Moving Forward" on the 21st June at the Natural History Museum, London. We'll be showcasing our range of  hydrocarbon and oil monitoring products.

National Institute for Environmental Studies buys second FastOcean APD for algal studies in Japanese lakes After successful field studies with their first CTG FastOcean profiling system, acquired in early 2016, the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) in Japan has just purchased their second FastOcean profiling system.

NIES have been using CTG Fast Repetition Rate fluorometers (FRRf) for a number of years to study photosynthesis in lakes around Japan as part of a long-term environmental monitoring program. The new profiling system is destined for their Lake Biwa branch, located in the Shiga prefecture in Japan, as part of a jointly funded program.

FastOcean used world-wide to monitor gross and net primary productivity (GPP and NPP)

Over the last year, Chelsea Technologies Group (CTG) has seen a number of publications appear regarding the use of the FastOcean Fast Repetition Rate fluorometer (FRRf) in the field. The FRRf is a great tool for measuring primary productivity and assessing the health of phytoplankton communities. The published papers (see below) demonstrate a wide range of uses for the instrument. These include investigating phytoplankton physiology in the Southern Ocean with regard to iron availability, comparing the effect of ocean acidification and irradiance on photophysiology in different phytoplankton groups and investigating the effect of silver nanoparticle toxicity in diatoms.

CTG Pipeline Leak Detection System

Chelsea Technologies Group (CTG) are to exhibit at Offshore Energy, 23rd and 24th October in Amsterdam with our agents Notra BV.  Emma Johnson, CTG's Maritime & Hydrocarbon Sales Manager will be showcasing CTG's range of  hydrocarbon and oil monitoring products. Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference (OEEC) is Europe's leading offshore energy event. It is unique in bringing together the oil & gas, offshore wind and marine energy industry. With the industry in transition OEEC offers offshore energy professionals the ideal meeting place to network, discuss and learn about the future of energy.

Following a triennial two day audit by SGS this week, CTG’s Managing Director, Dr Brian Phillips is today pleased to announced that CTG has transitioned to accreditation to the new standard ISO9001:2015.

“Following a triennial two day audit by SGS this week, I am pleased to announce that CTG has transitioned to accreditation to the new standard ISO 9001:2015,” said CTG’s Managing Director, Dr Brian Phillips. “A huge thank you goes to our staff for their considerable effort in achieving this recognition of CTG's quality and business processes.”

AquaShuttle Aranda Finland

Chelsea Technologies Group (CTG) has finished the refurbishment of an AquaShuttle towed undulating vehicle for the Finnish Environment Institute as part of the conversion of their Research Vessel, the Aranda. 

“We will be using the AquaShuttle on our renewed research vessel, where it will become part of standard inventory of research equipment,” said Dr Juha Flinkman.  “Our strongest research area is pelagic ecology, food web studies, and associated physical, chemical and biological oceanography. Aranda is a polar capacity research vessel, used in the Baltic Sea around the year, and capable of 3 season work in Polar waters.”  

The RV is due back from dock in the spring, when the AquaShuttle will be attached via a slip ring winch, allowing a direct data feed from the CTD.
