Project 4.
SeaWater Air Conditioning Pipeline Route
Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles

Project Owner: SeaCon International, Caribbean Island of Curaçao
Prime: No
Subcontract: Yes / Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.

Makai Ocean Engineering contracted OIC to provide data acquisition and processing for a proposed pipeline route that would run from the shore installation to approximately 1200 meters depth, several miles offshore.  In March of 2007, OIC executed a hull-mounted multibeam survey (using the Reson 8111 multibeam echo sounder) and a  deep-tow sidescan, high-resolution bathymetric survey.  The multibeam survey produced a map of the area offshore of Curaçao at five meters (or better) resolution, while the C3D deep-tow system was flown to depths of over 1,000 meters to produce a high-resolution corridor map for the detailed pipe route.  OIC conducted data acquisition using our proprietary GeoDAS software; data was processed via OIC’s proprietary software CleanSweep.
