Solar Powered Seismic Sources

Permanent Reservoir Monitoring - untethered from the electrical grid or generators which need refueling. At this SOV installation at a CO2 storage site, grid electrical power was not readily available. The solar panels and accompanying lithium-ion batteries power a dual-motor SOV (25 T-force peak) to perform time-lapse seismic monitoring. A wireless Ethernet bridge with antenna mounted on the 10 m tower allows data communication to a central data processing server.
