Germany explores manganese reduction in the pacific - greenpeace protested

The Collector Prototype of the Belgian Company Global Sea Mineral Resources (GSR) is drained in 4500 meters depth. The prototype named "Patania II "exists according to BGR message from a suspension and a hydraulic recording system, over which the tubers are sucked together with the surrounding sediment. According to GSR, the tuber collector is supplied and controlled by a five kilometer long cable from the ship with energy.
