Will you be bringing any equipment (winches, blocks, etc.) that lowers equipment over the side? No

If yes, please provide details:
Will there be special requirements for:

    Electrical power
    Equipment handling
Yes
    Inter/intraship communications
Yes
    Science stowage
Yes

If yes to any of the above, please identify: Mooring and glider deployments. We will bring glider handling gear.

Will any of the following items be used on board?

Will hazardous material be used aboard, or deployed by an ROV?

What measures or plans have been made a) in the event of a spill, and b) for the removal and/or disposal of these materials at the completion of the cruise?
Gliders and some instuments (SBE MicroCATS) use LI primary batteries. Lith-X is the recommended fire-fighting compound. We will bring if Knorr does not have a supply.
