DeepWater Buoyancy Doubles Staff and Facility Size

DeepWater Buoyancy Doubles Staff and Facility Size

DeepWater Buoyancy Doubles Staff and Facility Size

DeepWater Buoyancy Inc. announced this week that it has doubled both its facility and workforce during the first eight months of 2014.   The new facility was opened in January after securing the rights to the Flotation Technologies syntactic foam-based, legacy oceanographic and oil/gas undersea product lines.

“We are so grateful for the loyal customer support we’ve seen since opening our doors in January,” said DeepWater Buoyancy Co-President & Director of Business Development, David Capotosto.   “Because of their trust in our team and products, we have already shipped thousands of buoys, systems and subsea components to a dozen different countries.”

“One key to our rapid expansion,” said Capotosto, “is that our customers have been able to make a seamless transition from Flotation Technologies to DeepWater Buoyancy.   We’re shipping new and replacement buoys and components daily.” The company manufactures a full line of ADCP buoys, cable floats, instrument collars and custom syntactic solutions reliable at depths exceeding six thousand meters.

Key milestones in DeepWater Buoyancy’s growth include:

January 2014

  • Company begins to offer newly-acquired, legacy designs from Flotec.
  • Ten-thousand square-foot facility designed, refurbished and opened.
  • Launched with initial staff of former Flotec workers.
  • Initial orders shipped.

August 2014

  • Facility doubled to 20,000 square feet with option for significant further growth.
  • Staff more than doubled.
  • Shipped over 4,800 buoys, systems and components to twelve countries along with United States.
  • Served key customers including Scripps, Subsea7, Fugro, FMC Technologies, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Oceaneering International, and PGS Geophysical AS.

DeepWater Buoyancy has also aggressively expanded its network of international sales representatives, recently adding partners in Australia, Brazil, Denmark and South Africa to its sales team.  Representatives are based in China, France, Spain, India, Japan, the Netherlands and additional countries across six continents.

DeepWater Buoyancy Chosen  for Ocean Observatories Initiative

DeepWater Buoyancy Chosen for Ocean Observatories Initiative

Flotation Products To Support New Undersea Research Network

DeepWater Buoyancy has been awarded a major contract to supply flotation to the University of Washington’s Applied Physics Laboratory for the cabled observatory component of the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI).  The OOI, a project funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), is planned as an integrated infrastructure of science-driven platforms and sensor systems to measure physical, chemical, geological and biological properties and processes from the seafloor to the air-sea interface.

The company was selected after a competitive bidding and assessment process that evaluated product performance, technical specifications and pricing.

“We are honored to be chosen for the Ocean Observatories Initiative,” said DeepWater Buoyancy president David Capotosto.  “This is a major achievement for our team, and we look forward to partnering with the oceanography community on the OOI.”

DeepWater Buoyancy will be delivering more than 32,000 lbs. (14,500 kg) of DeepTec™ syntactic foam in support of the cabled observatory component of the OOI.

Over 268 individual products will be provided as part of this sizable order including: 210 model CF-12 cable floats with titanium hardware, 15 spherical buoys in a range of sizes and 43 highly engineered custom fabricated parts–some exceeding 4000 lbs. of total uplift and depth rated to 3000 meters.

DeepWater Buoyancy syntactic foam systems will be integral to the OOI cabled observatory’s studies of ocean circulation and seafloor dynamics, which require high-speed and accurate data acquisition in demanding, rapidly changing conditions.   DeepWater Buoyancy’s proven product integrity, stability and performance at depth were a critical part of the University of Washington’s decision to select the company.

“We’ve relied on this team of designers and product specialists for years,” stated the University’s Applied Physics Lab principal engineer Geoff Cram.   “Since DeepWater Buoyancy re-launched the former Flotation Technologies line of subsurface products, we’ve been carefully assessing their progress as a potential supplier for this project.  They successfully provided us with two orders earlier this year, and we are pleased with their quality and delivery performance.  We look forward to their playing a key part in the ongoing OOI program.”

The University of Washington is leading the design, construction, and early operations of the regional cabled observatory (Regional Scale Nodes) component of the OOI. Innovative high-bandwidth instruments, connected to the 575-mile network of electro-optical cables, will be installed on the seafloor and in the water column at study sites in the Northeast Pacific Ocean off the Oregon and Washington coasts.

“The networks will be moving data at rates exceeding tens of gigabits per second, and will be served by tens of kilowatts of power.  These high rates demand precise, stable platforms that can hold up to intense subsea pressure.   The performance of DeepWater Buoyancy flotation systems at such depths is critical to our project’s success,” stated Chuck McGuire, Lead Systems Engineer at the University of Washington Applied Physics dev.

DeepWater Buoyancy secured the designs and manufacturing rights to a select group of former Flotation Technologies products, and has been manufacturing and enhancing those systems from a new facility in Biddeford, Maine since January.   Current customers include the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Bedford Institute of Oceanography, FMC Technologies and Oceaneering International.
