The Metals Company (TMC) is undertaking a comprehensive deep-sea research programme collecting polymetallic nodules from the Clarion Clipperton Zone (CCZ) in the Pacific Ocean. Successful sourcing and processing of these nodules generating almost zero solid waste could provide power for electric vehicles and other high-powered storage requirements for years to come.
Sealand, through Maersk Supply Services, have provided operational support for this research campaign, helping to facilitate the collection operations allowing time to develop an environmental basline of the proposed operating environment.
