OSU Webcams – OSU Ship Operations - Pier Construction
OSU Ship Operations, located in Newport, OR, is the home port for the 54' RV Elakha, the 177' RV Oceanus (retired), and the 199' RV Taani (under construction). In addition to these OSU research vessels, the facility also supports visiting vessels of the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) Academic Research Fleet and provides access to the sea for research, education, and engineering.
Pier construction is in progress in preparation for the RCRV Taani, which is also currently under construction. During this process, the original pier and trestle (built in the 1960’s) will be replaced with a new and much more robust section, along with a number of upgrades to the remaining pier section, floating dock, and causeway. These improvements will greatly enhance Ship Ops ability to support safe science at sea.
