Argus Electrical Wires in Tubing

Susie Hill / Ocean Exploration Trust

Electrical wires carrying vital information through Argus need to be protected from the extreme deep water pressure and salt water corrosion, so the wires are encased in clear, thick plastic tubing with mineral oil. The tubes are clear so the ROV engineers can see if there are any air/water leaks during the maintenance checks and dives.
