NEWS  |  Aluminum Could Power AUV Operations in Oil, Gas  |  Rigzone: "Aluminum could provide a new energy source for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) for oil and gas operations. Spun out from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) 18 months ago, Open Water Power is seeking oil and gas industry partners to test its aluminum-water platform technology in the offshore oil and gas environment. Company officials told attendees at the Oil and Gas Innovation Summit in Houston in late April that their technology can expand by a factor of 10 the distance at which AUVs can operate, and can help the oil and gas industry cut costs and improve safety and efficiency as they seek to tap the world’s remaining hydrocarbon resources, much of which lies far offshore or under the Arctic ice."
