Every mystery and danger of the sea is a technological challenge waiting to be overcome.

From deep-sea danger to mega-holiday cruises, helping rivers flow, and harvesting power, a new Science Channel eight-episode series dives in deep to unlock the ultimate challenges of extreme maritime environments.

“Mega Machines: Sea Giants” highlights the new tools and technology that are pushing the limits in the world’s most unruly bodies of water.

The series will look at a state-of-the-art ocean miner used to extract the salts used to manufacture modern plastics, and at two new multi-mission fireboats in Long Beach, California that can project water or foam 600 feet and higher than a 20-story building.

It will also examine the world’s biggest tidal turbine used to harness water as a source of unlimited energy, and a heavyweight dredging project in Charleston, South Carolina that if successful, will completely transform its harbor, allowing the city to boast the deepest port on the eastern seaboard.

“Mega Machines: Sea Giants” premieres Thursday, October 11 on the Science Channel.
