UK-based oceanographic systems engineering company, Ocean Scientific International Ltd (OSIL), is now offering corer and grab refurbishment services.

Corers and grabs can sustain damage during deployment and recovery and, through use, components can become worn. OSIL is now able to strip down and fully refurbish a wide range of grabs and sediment corers, including Gravity Corers, Box (or Spade) Corers, Van Veen Grabs and Day Grabs, replacing components where necessary, and re-certifying load bearing wire ropes.

In addition, OSIL is able to re-design and re-make customers own existing coring systems to improve performance and sample retention.

OSIL provides integrated systems for environmental monitoring in all marine applications. Fully instrumented data buoys and monitoring platforms are tailored to customer requirements and operational needs, and may feature a range of instruments including Multiparameter Sondes, Current Meters/Profilers, CTDs, SVs and Meteorological sensors.

The company also has an in-house Marine Instrument Service and Calibration Centre which offers calibration, servicing, repair and technical support for many of the laboratory and in-situ marine instruments that they supply.
