Do you know about Technology Centre for Offshore and Marine Singapore (TCOMS)? The ocean basin facility is the size of 15 Olympic-sized swimming pools and can simulate water depths of up to 3,000 metres! Here are some pictures of the Ocean Basin before it was filled with water. TCOMS will be an important support engine for BeeX’s growth as a marine robotics startup; we are looking forward to its official opening!
For the soft opening preview, The BumbleBee 3X vehicle was deployed in the central deep pit of the Basin. It was great to have the opportunity to share BeeX’s ambitions to the audience which included SM Teo Chee Hean, Min Chan Chun Sing, NUS President Tan Eng Chye, TCOMS CEO Prof Chan Eng Soon.
