Satchell Engineering Projects

Shamu Backstage

SeaWorld of San Diego

SeaWorld's Shamu Backstage tanks display Orcas, the beautiful killer whales. These impressively large tanks not only allow for spectacular viewing of the orcas, but also give the orcas plenty of space to swim and entertain. Robert Satchell was fundamental in the life support system design (LSS) and the LSS project management for the Shamu Backstage exhibit at both SeaWorld San Diego. The main exhibit and holding tanks total over 8.5 million gallons of saltwater.
