Access Charge Plan

For the full Access Charge Plan please contact Louise Collins:

The plan can be summerised as follows:

  • The user pays for mobilisation/de-mobilisation costs (batteries/ship time/transport)
  • There is a surcharge of 15% on the cost of the consumables (which must be bought through the iMARL facility) to cover
    • The cost price of a DIAS offshore technician during the equipment deployment
    • The hardware cost of ongoing cable and other pre-deployment repairs to the equipment (onshore technician time is free as it is part of the institutional contribution)
  • There is no rental charge for the equipment
  • Data handling and shore-side technical help is 100% covered by institutional contributions to the iMARL facility.
