Alvin moves to High Bay

Alvin Home Again

In December 2010, the deep-submergence vehicle Alvin was trucked to Woods Hole from Jacksonville, Florida, where its support ship R/V Atlantis is undergoing routine maintenance. Alvin was then moved by crane to the High Bay in the Iselin Marine Facility at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where it will undergo a comprehensive overhaul and upgrade lasting until 2012. When complete, the upgrade will give Alvin a larger and stronger personnel sphere, upgraded imaging systems, and better views from inside the front of the sub for scientists and pilots.
