The only real way to know if we are on the right track is by exploring the concepts and gathering the data.
We've designed and built a myriad of fully and hybrid electric propulsion, microgrids, solar and wind powered systems. From fishing boats to blue water cruisers, the campaign has systems operating around the world.
Our technology program provides continued research and development in sustainable sailing, the next phase of the NDMP initiative is to provide training and experiences on and off the water.
With rapid changes in technology requires changes in the method, integrated clean technologies means we can work closer with nature learning new and better ways of operating with our available natural resources.
We fully capture all the data required to complete any task, renewable power that supports the science, the boat, her equipment and crew. Historical data monitoring, advanced forecasting and operational details to view develops a new era of seamanship.
One of the most interesting areas developing in clean energy storage is in Hydrogen. This has the potential to provide an alternative to large battery banks and diesel/petrol generators. It's early days for the technology, but it's not new technology. Every effort made is a step in the right direction.
Our ROV With has a max depth: of 200M (656 FT) provides imagery to record research on hulls and mooring systems, anchorages and conservation zones.
A data fetch of floating debris and microplastics, offshore, coastal and in estuaries. Data that can help find solutions to stop the relentless impact of plastic pollution.
Using this grab sampler, we can take samples taken from the bottom of the sea, providing vital insight into high polluting areas and the wider implications.
Ocean literacy is defined as “an understanding of the ocean's influence on you and your influence on the ocean”
We act as part of a collective ambition to create an ocean-literate society able to make informed and responsible decisions on ocean resources and ocean sustainability.
Advanced marine engineering, clean energy, storage and power transfer along with new sailing methodology is at the forefront of our research and development, and together we face the climate and biodiversity crises, developing strategies that reduce the negative impact we have on our planet.
We only have one ocean, and campaigning for a cleaner and more sustainable planet is a primary objective. There is much talk of the climate crisis, but as important, if not more so, is the biodiversity crisis.
If more people Think Ocean, we can kick-start a wave of action that will protect our planet’s future.
