Ceremonial Inauguration of a Pressure Tank for Deep Sea Simulation

On the 21st August 2013, the ceremonial completion of the installation of the new pressure tank of the Chair of Marine Technology took place in the Alfred-Leder Hall. On this occasion, the Rector of the University, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schareck, and the Dean of the Faculty for Mechanical Engineering and Ship Design, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Woernle greeted those who were present. Afterwards the invited guests listened to several expert lectures from the fields of marine technology and marine research and had the opportunity for extensive inspection of the large device.

With the tank, simulations of depths of down to 6,000 m can be carried out. Rostock Business will support the University in the marketing of the research capacities and has already commissioned a promotional film about the tank for this purpose.
