The MVCO is run as a WHOI cost center with annual user fees. The schedule for recovery and deployment is driven by user requirements, which will interrupt services. It should be noted that the MVCO schedules annual maintenance activities.

2013 User Fees

Connections Annual Charge  
  Offshore Onshore
1-3 Guest ports $13,100 $5,800
4-6 Guest ports $26,200 $11,600
7-9 Guest ports $39,300 Est. on availability
10-12 Guest ports $52,400 Presently N/A

Costs for the deployment, maintenance, and recovery of the sensors (e.g., jetting of pipes and burial of cable) should be added to the individual budget. WHOI user services may be contacted to offer guidance. For estimated user fees from 2011-2015, click here (pdf).

Each user will be provided with the appropriate IP addresses and a password-protected web page that allows for control of each guest port. It is important to note, however, that WHOI is not responsible for collecting or managing the actual data that is collected by each sensor. WHOI user services can provide you with common approaches and solutions to logging the data, but the implementation of the data acquisition system is up to each user.
