MSI completes 12 month ‘Shah Deniz’ program

MSI has previously reported on a long-term current measurement programme in the Shah Deniz field off Baku, Azerbaijan. We can report that this project has finished with the successful recovery of the mooring in March 2006. The recovery of the mooring was conducted from the vessel MV Yarenga and during this trip, the MSI engineer also assisted with servicing and deployment of Triaxys directional wave buoys.
