Use of VideoRay Pro 4 in the MOSE Construction-Venice

Use of VideoRay Pro 4 in the MOSE Construction-Venice and other projects

Mauro Stasi, Managing Director, IROV Underwater Services

The MOSE Project (acronym for Modulo Sperimentale Elettromeccanico — in English, Experimental Electromechanical Module) is a project intended to protect the city of Venice, Italy from floods. At the cost of over €4 Billion ($6 Billion), it is one of the world’s largest flood control projects. It consists of a series of huge rows of mobile gates able to isolate the Venetian Lagoon from the Adriatic Sea. Work is due to be completed in 2014.

A VideoRay Pro 4 is being used in Venice during the construction operation of the MOSE. In normal conditions, the gates, large metal box type structures 20 m wide, between 20 and 30 m long and about 5 m thick, are full of water and rest in prefabricated concrete caissons on the reinforced seabed. When a tide higher than 110 cm is forecast, the gates are emptied of water by introducing compressed air. They therefore rise, rotating around the axis of the hinges until they emerge from the water, temporarily isolating the lagoon from the sea and stopping the tidal flow.

This presentation will show the role VideoRays play in this and other Mediterranean projects.

After Mauro's studies in marine biology, in 2006 he decided to start a new company named iRov Underwater Services. Mauro has personally participated in several Underwater Surveys and other operations around Europe and in Mediterranean waters.

Today iRov is one of the most respected companies in the Mediterranean involved in underwater technology.

Mauro also won the award at VIPS2008 for the Best VideoRay Mission.
