New CPR for SAHFOS fleet

24 Feb 2017 | 58

Here's Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) no. 216, the latest addition to SAHFOS's fleet of recorders. 86 years of the CPR Survey and we're on Recorder no. 216, that's robust!

We currently have 52 CPR's and 117 internals in our fleet, with the oldest in service manufactured in 1938!

Of these, 41 were manufactured from gunmetal and bronze. The other 11 have been made from more modern techniques from stainless steel (from 2010 - present).

To date, SAHFOS has also supplied the stainless steel type CPRs to Ghana, India, Ireland, Australia, South Africa, Cyprus, France, USA and Brazil.
