Omega Engineering: A Technological Harmony with Nature

Top 10 Ocean Tech Europe Solution Companies - 2020

The state of sea exploration is fast changing. The dark, high-pressure conditions of the ocean depths that once made research impossible are now being explored with cutting-edge technology. One of the recent discoveries made in the field of deep-ocean exploration is the proliferation of biofluorescence in the darkest parts of the sea. Realms that look pitch black to human eyes are, in fact, filled with more than 250 species of fish that glow in red, orange, and green hues. To detect this effect, researchers have built a camera that filters out certain wavelengths of light. Combined with artificial blue light to enhance the fluorescent colour, this equipment allows scientists to record the light show of these fishes. Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), which is a computer-controlled system operating undersea, is another technology that is changing ocean exploration. AUVs are unmanned underwater robots akin to the Curiosity rover NASA uses on Mars. AUVs have no physical connection to their operator, who may be onshore or aboard a ship. Rather, AUVs are self-guiding and self-powered vehicles that can glide from the sea surface to ocean depths and back.

That is not all. The latest invention in ocean exploration is a cyborg jellyfish—half-jellyfish, half-robot—that can swim nearly three times faster than a regular jellyfish, and which one day can be remotely steered to collect information from deep ocean waters. Scientists are currently working on refining the device to collect data such as water temperature, salinity, pH and other measures.

Ocean technology is not a new market but it has been somewhat overlooked. The silver lining is that companies can now take advantage of the relatively limited interest in the world’s seas, by developing entirely new products. Highlighting such new technological developments in the ocean tech market, Enterprise Technology Review has compiled a list of ‘Top 10 Ocean Tech Companies in Europe – 2020’that are making waves in ocean technology. The enlisted organisations are transforming the ocean research operations at the convergence of several disruptive technologies. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for the aspiring CIOs.

We present to you Enterprise Technology Review’s, “Top 10 Ocean Tech Companies in Europe – 2020.”

    Top Ocean Tech Europe Solution Companies

  • Aqua Comms envisions building, acquiring or merging with subsea fibre-optic cable networks to provide capacity networking solutions to customers that require exceptional reliability and performance. The company strongly focuses on subsea networks in the North Atlantic market and offers fibre-optic cable networks that enable Trans-Atlantic connectivity for global carriers, cloud-based networks, data centers, IT companies, and the global media. The comprehensive range of services that Aqua Comms offers includes the planning, implementation and supply of fibre pairs, spectrum, and capacity services to the global media, content and carrier markets. As the demand for higher capacity, greater reach, and network flexibility rise among web-scale and content providers, Aqua Comms is aligning its interests along the same lines by pushing the barriers of technology on its networks, extending its existing systems, and building new cable routes

  • OceanTech is a technology-driven company that holds a major experience and proven track record in the splash zone. The company provide services in the difficult accessible splash zone where divers and ROV’s have difficulty to work. As the remotely operated access solutions are launched from the structure, platform, wind turbine or bridge, it reduces the costs and CO2 emissions by minimising the need for support vessels, ROVs and divers. OceanTech’s technology is absolutely perfect for the offshore wind, aquaculture, transport and maritime sectors, as well as the oil & gas industry

  • Designs and develops OWAC systems for buildings, enabling them to save on AC energy consumption costs while also producing cleaner, greener, environmental-friendly indoor environments. Omega Engineering’s operational approach allows it to make the best possible use of available natural resources for the maximum benefit of clients and the community as a whole. As most conventional methods of energy storage and distribution do not substantially minimize the economic constraints for most building owners, the aim was to develop a plan to improve the performance of the OWAC system using a natural resource.

  • For over 30 years, Sab Seaeye has been inspired to develop pioneering innovative solutions for the underwater environment. With substantial tank-test and lake-test facilities in the UK, U.S, and Sweden, Saab Seaeye has well laid out their presence worldwide. More than 80 percent of its systems are exported to international markets that are present all over the world, in 25 different countries. In all of the market sectors, Saab Seaeye’s robotic systems are found to solve the demanding tasks of observation, inspection, survey, repair and maintenance, light construction and intervention, deep tunnel, and environment monitoring

  • SubMarine Open Technologies offers a low-cost solution based on USBL technology and is aimed to be of use for beginners as well as experts in diving. Divers can move faster, record, view, and share points of interest while they are diving deep in the ocean, sea, or any other water body. The equipment is made in such a way that during immersion, a diver can download a map and display the points of interest he had saved offline or during a previous dive. Also, locating each diver is not a matter of concern as the system allows positioning up to 30 divers for each buoy. Each diver gets to see his own position and the location of other divers
